Indiegogo time

May has been a crazy wonderful month! We made it to the Top 4 for CBC Music’s Searchlight contest for Canada’s Best New Artist, an honour that we could not have expected. Thank you, everyone who supported us throughout!

We have so many new exciting announcements to make. First of all, we have one question for you: Who wants our new album?

20150415 Ovayok Road Campaign Cover

We’ve finished recording, mixing, and mastering all of our tracks for our EP album “Ovayok Road”, set to be released in August 2015. The next step is to get them out on CDs. You can pre-purchase your copy (and score some extra perks) through our freshly launched Indiegogo campaign. Click here to get your hands on your copy!

Big thanks to Devon Crosby who not only designed the album art but is also giving us a hand with the crowdfunding campaign.

More exciting news: new show announcements!

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be playing a few shows with some of our favourite Searchlight acts as they come into town, including Sudbury’s favourite bloodgrass murder ballad musicians Murder Murder, and Winnipeg’s brilliantly talented Iskwe. Sadly, Christine will still be in Nunavut but our old band members Dannik Leduc and Kevin Ledlow will be reuniting with the band for an awesome time!

I (Gloria) will also be doing a solo synth set synth at Winston Square, creating an improvisational musical soundscape while artist Mailyne Briggs does live painting. This family-friendly event will also definitely be worth checking out:

 Meanwhile, back in Nunavut, the filming for our music video Fault Lines continues. We teamed up with local videographer Mason Greenley (yup, that’s the same kind soul who has been our sound guy for our Cambridge Bay shows) to shoot more scenes out with Christine out on the beautiful frozen Arctic Ocean. Stay tuned to hear more about when we’ll be releasing the music video!

Finally, a big thank you to Jeff Appleton for playing our music on his RASP Radio show on the Radio Aktiv radio station – we love the support we get from you!

A warm thanks to Ride the Tempo as well for their kind words about our music.

See you all very soon!
