After a bit of break from shows over the winter, with summer coming up, we have a bunch of exciting shows and festivals coming up very quickly. Starting today, we'll be playing down at the Spring Coulee Springfest, and we have plenty of shows in Calgary for the near future. Stay tuned for show announcements soon!
Back in november, we had the opportunity to fly to Vancouver and film our music video for Marguerite, done by some great people. And now, the video is out! Hope you enjoy it, we sure had fun making it. Thanks everyone!
We just finished some new recordings in the studio, and we couldn't be more excited to announce we have an new EP coming out very soon! We had a great time, and were proud of the sounds we were able to achieve. Although we don't have an EP for you just yet, in the meantime, enjoy some photos from the weekend.
Last week we had the pleasure of playing at The Standard in downtown Calgary along with a bunch of other musicians, painters, photographers, make-up artists, and more. This event was our first ever RAW Artists show, and since we are now RAW artists, we can't wait to play more shows like this in the future! Here's some fantastic shots of us, taken by some of the photographers at the event.
We would like to thank RAW for making us one of their artists, and for giving us the opportunity to play at the event.. We had a blast, and were overwhelmed by amazing audience we had. Thanks to the photographers for these great shots, all the other artists, to the organizers, and of course to everyone who came. Until next time!
Recently we were invited to perform for the Wednesday Late Night at The Plaza show in Kensington. As part of the event, organizer Karlee Mctavish filmed a short documentary video of the band. We are proud to share the video with you, as it will give you an insight on the band, and it’s members you wouldn’t normally see! We hope you enjoy it, feel free to share it with others!
Happy New Year!

Last weekend, the band made a trip down to Vancouver to play at The Roxy downtown, and to film a fully produced music video. We all had a blast, and we can't wait for the video to be finished!
First night: Playing at The Roxy. Sweet venue, great time.. Until next time!
The next two days were spent filming a full music video for our song Marguerite. It was quite the adventure. This is our first music video we've ever filmed with an actual story line to it, and we were super excited to do it. We plan to have the video done before the new year, and can't wait for everyone to see it!
Overall, it was a great little trip, and we can't wait to come back again in the future. Thanks Van City!!
Here's some pics of the open mic we hosted for the "Folk U" program at Festival Hall for the Calgary Folk Festival Organization. Thanks for having us host the show!
