T.C. Young + Davy James = Young James. These songwriters’ paths first crossed in the mid-90s, when their bands played shows together. The collaboration began with their self-titled debut in 2008, followed by Cruel Times in 2012. Hard Way Road was recorded over the winter in T.C.’s basement studio. These four songs are filled with prairie imagery, strong melodies, and a healthy dose of twang and grit.
Oscar’s Hollow is an exciting new band in Saskatoon’s flourishing music scene. Formed in 2016 by Lee Harris and Kris Mihilewicz, two singer/songwriters who both move easily between rhythm and lead guitar, this 5-piece already boasts a rich catalogue of original material and stylized covers. Although Mihilewicz and Harris both have distinctive individual styles, these blend and synergize within Oscar’s Hollow in ways reminiscent of Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo). The group’s sound evokes comparisons to The Band or perhaps Wilco, spanning a broad spectrum of styles and genres as Harris and Mihilewicz are joined by Kurt Burnett on drums and percussion, Darryl Dozlaw on keyboards and other sundries, and Byron Shaw on bass and guitar. Burnett, Dozlaw and Shaw all offer vocal harmonies to the mix.
