ADDITIONAL ARTIST DETAILS:

On top of that, he has taped an episode of Guilt Free Zone for APTN and appeared on an episode of Killjoys. Past highlights include playing the inaugural WayHome Festival, shooting a commercial in Australia for Air Canada, charting at no. 1 on the National Aboriginal Music Countdown.
Texas King formed in 2013 and before long, began earning a reputation for their high-energy rock shows. It’s often said that Texas King is best experienced when seen, not just heard. Now armed with their hook-filled debut, the band is ready to make their mark in the world of rock music, one rowdy club at a time.
Cat Clyde is a brand new artist out of Stratford/London, ON. A fresh take on the classic sounds of yesteryear, breathing new life into the velvety vocal, tack-piano, slide-guitar-style that can instantly walk you through the swinging doors of a packed saloon.
WHOOP-Szo are a tricky band to shelve. At one listen, you might latch onto their folkie regionalism and proclivity for place-based storytelling, and then, two tracks later, it might be the thoughtful architecture of their noise-building that reels you in.
