GRAYDON JAMES & THE YOUNG NOVELISTS
Exclaim! dubbed their first EP unpretentious brilliance and this six-piece folk-roots band has won critical acclaim ever since. Stephen Fearing described them as having tight arrangements, great dynamics, and good songs with beautiful three-part harmonies and their live shows capture audiences with both barnstorming singalongs and poignant ballads. They have shared the stage with The Lowest of the Low, Cuff the Duke, LeE HARVeY OsMOND, Wilderness of Manitoba, and Harlan Pepper. They have also appeared at numerous festivals including Mariposa Folk Festival, Halifax Urban Folk Festival, Burlington Sound of Music, OtherFolk, and Niagara's In The Soil festival. They are currently recording their second full-length studio album, which will be released in Spring 2015.
RED MOON ROAD
Born in a storm on a wild Canadian lake, Red Moon Road came into its own on the trails between coast and coast. All credit goes to the chemistry, and to the magic that happens when the Winnipeg bands two Daniels jazz-trained Daniel Jordan and bilingual prog-rock vet Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner strum up the strings to support twilight-voiced singer Sheena Rattai. From living rooms to folk fest stages, the three have charmed fans from coast to coast with their lush and lively take on modern roots, peppered always by bright stage banter. As you can hear on their brand-new eponymous debut album, its all sort of rich and warm and deeply familiar, like a campfire crackling wherever the microphones stand: even if its your first time in the audience, you come as a friend of this band.
