Friends of Foes
Hailing from the heart of the Saskatchewan prairies, Friends of Foes hit their listeners with a roaring wall of sonic talent. From soft, gentle melodies to full on audio assaults, the heavy drum lines and harmony-laden choruses mix musical finesse with raw power.
Having already shared the stage with some of Canada’s best bands, topping numerous “Best Of” lists, and drawing comparisons to Death Cab for Cutie and Stars, Friends of Foes is a relentlessly hard working band dead set on carving a name for themselves in Canadian music through endless touring and a powerful press presence.
Formed in 2012, it’s hard to believe that this all-girl trio from Saskatchewan is only 17. Canada's Top 4 Finalist for CBC Searchlight in 2017, and winner of Sasktel’s 2015 Songwriter of the Year, The Wolfe touches on relatable subjects that are expressed through their risk-taking, sometimes cheeky, yet stuck-in-your-head catchy tunes. Soft yet powerful vocals are contrasted with an underlay of delayed guitar, gritty bass lines and engaging beats. Having often been compared to Metric and The Cranberries, The Wolfe has also been called “A female U2 that’s able to get heavier and tackle more emotional subjects.”
The Wolfe’s music is something that should not only be heard, but seen. Their high-energy show has graced the stages and captivated the crowds of Borealis Music Festival, Pine Needle Mountain Bike & Music Festival, and the Waskesiu Lakeside Music Festival to name a few. Having released an EP, played over a hundred shows and touched the hearts of many, The Wolfe is just beginning.
Hailing From Saskatoon, Saskatchewan with their Debut EP "J'Orage" Released in May 2016. Anxious rhythms, tidal wave endings, intoxicating vocal timbres; Ponteix has just begun to take on the grand nature of the living skies they write under.
All Mighty Voice
Backed by winter chilling five-part harmonies, All Mighty Voice plays a rugged blend of Alternative, Folk/Rock. Weaving elegance, grit and simplicity, they are backed by a wall of sound built with Upright Bass, Percussion, Piano/Organ, Electric/Acoustic Guitars and Harmonica. From different paths, these five song writers come together as a family and let THAT shine through their Live Show.
Based out of Northern Canada, they craft their music from live looping, synthesizers, keyboards and samples while tight percussive rhythms of guitars and drums hold down an uncontainable energy. This is where their souls are pulsed by electronic music and passions are thoroughly evoked, integrating live players into sonic dreams that push the boundaries of their experiences with comfort and love.
We are a 3 piece band from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Our main focus is to be relatable. We want to have a wide variety of genres in our set lists while ensuring that the crowd has a good time.
Aside from doing covers, we want to bring our own music onto the scene too. We have several originals, 5 of which are in production for our debut EP coming out in the early to late spring of 2017.
We are extremely excited to announce PA's own Kelly Taylor as our emcee for the day! Kelly has risen to the top of Canada's comedians.
