Eamon McGrath: (Edmonton indie/punk poet)
With over 100,000 kilometres of highway, railroad and sky behind him, McGrath continues to blaze an impassioned trail of music that finds a sound and voice somewhere between punk rock, country, folk and rock and roll. Taking him to locations as geographically diverse as Reykjavik, Palma de Majorca, Warsaw, and everywhere in between, McGrath and his guitar represent a new dawn of singer-songwriting that’s injected with the raw, fierce energy of punk rock: not in the sense of an acoustic performer hollering at the top of his lungs to simulate the energy of a full band, but instead something more rooted in a passionate commitment to your craft and a blind and zealous determination to your vision, wrapped in a sonic texture as rough as the road itself.
Mushy Gushy: (Ottawa indie rock)
We combine 80’s hair metal with garage/indie rock tendencies in a way that has definitely been done before many times. But we like to think we are pretty good at it.
We call it “Butt Rock”.
Just think “Boys of Summer” by Don Henley but noisier.
