Shred Kelly: (Fernie stoke-folk, DevilDuck recs)
Soaked in electric crescendos and folk tinged sing-along anthems, Shred Kelly is known for their high energy live show that ignites dance floors with their alternative folk sound. Over three albums and countless tours, the five British Columbians have developed their signature sound by taking inspiration from the mountains they hail from and the people who inhabit them. Shred Kelly has seamlessly fused traditional instrumentation with modern rock, presenting a sound that is both unique and compelling.
Jeremie Albino Music: (Toronto country blues)
Jeremie Albino is a story teller, an old soul with a picture to paint.
His youth was spent as a city boy but as the years went by he couldn’t ignore a yearning for a simpler life. So, fuelled by a rambling heart, Jeremie grabbed his guitar and set off for the countryside, where he could nurture the rusty blues that were buried within.
Rooted in a classic sound of folk legends that came before him, Jeremie brings a distinct modernity to a style that’s slowly slipping away. He knows where he came from, but where he’s going is a story that’s yet to be told…
