The Marwills
The Marwills are a thick, juicy cut of Rock stuffed with the Blues, stroked and soaked until hard and greasy, then covered in Grade A Canadian dirt. Their sound conjures smoky blues bars, shady drinking establishments, and the golden age of rock and roll. They make music with serious guts and they sweat while they do it.
Although their debut album, “Marwill St.", was released in 2012, most of the members have been playing together in some form or another for almost a decade. Starting out in small-town BC then playing biker bars and Hell's Angels' gatherings in Alberta for a number of years, The Marwills continued east to the big smoke of Toronto, where they’ve established themselves as a rocking tour de force to be reckoned with.
The Marwill's newest release, "Facts & Figures" (2014) is a raw rock album full of bluesy riffs, crunchy guitars, and lustful lyrics, rounded out along the edges with backing vocals, slide guitar, keys, sax, a female choir, fiddle, and acoustic guitar for a touch of mature nuance.
No Fly List
With one foot placed in the folk/alt-country camp of Wilco/Neil Young, and the other in complete unironic admiration of 70s Aerosmith, Pink Floyd and ThinLizzy — No Fly List compose original songs bathed in the glimmer of these timeless influences. Their debut album, Blaze On shows considerable range, with all the intensity and bluster of the best of hard rock filtered through the introspective lens of the singer-songwriter.
"…the rocking tracks are full of energy and the mellower ones are as captivating as all hell..."
