// Safe as Houses
Safe as Houses is an alternative-folk band from Kitchener-Waterloo recognized for their poetic lyrics, tight musical performances, and haunting five-part harmonies. Their influences include a variety of artists from genres spanning folk, rock, and classical. Their first full length album, The Fall of a Sparrow, was released December 2014 to a sold out show in Waterloo.
Their single We’ll Be Dancin’ placed in the top 24 nationally in the 2014 CBC Searchlight competition, and their song The Sun and the Storm was #13 on CBC Sonica’s most played tracks of 2015. Elliot Anton (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Bensen Carter (bass, cello, vocals), and brothers Andrew (guitar, vocals) and Thomas Laughton (drums, vocals), have been writing songs together since early 2011. Lauren Taylor (violin, vocals) joined the band during the summer of 2014. Since 2014, the band has continued to tour, playing several major festivals, and has gone on to release an EP titled Hurricane (Aug 2016). They’ve been likened to Simon and Garfunkel, Jeremy Fisher, and Dan Mangan. The band just recently announced the upcoming release of their third full-length album titled Lucky Lucky due out May 11th.
// Hungry Lake
Hungry Lake are a psychedelic folk-rock band from Toronto. Swirling guitars and enormous walls of sound are met with folk sensibilities to bring Hungry Lake’s sad stadium rock to the stage with force. Plans for 2018 see the band embarking on a national tour to bring their upcoming album New Destruction to festivals and smaller communities with an intense and dynamic live show.
