Closest to Folk Rock with Garage Jazz, and Grunge Country influences
Moab UT, Nashville TN
The Magpie bird is considered a shamanic bird, a link to the other worldly, primal realm of spirits, senses, and symbolism. This Magpie, the band, does something very similar. Their lyrical encoding speaks of grander ways hidden in simplicity which sedates us into a connectedness and assurance to the ear.
The multi-instrumental introductions and interceptions lend a flavor of unity as musical odes of many strings, harps, drums, tambourines, and mutation dance together, building climax that seems to be Magpie's signature. This building is as if your heart takes a deep breath, feeling cleared and spacious for whatever destiny has planned on your horizon; as if Magpie reminds you that we truly don't know the future, it is certainly grand, so let’s stir on this edge of hopeful, primal excitement of now.
A. Dyjecinski
"Canadian Dyjecinski is one of the most original voices to emerge on the alt-country scene in the last few years, but to call The Valley Of Yessiree an alt-country album is doing it a disservice. There are elements of minimal blues, grunge and the garage rock background from which Dyjecinski sprung, but at the bottom of it all is that voice: heartbreaking, cruel, tender and cracked."
Folk Radio UK top 10 of the year-
"A classcial place # 21 would be „The Valley Of Yessiree“ by A. Dyjecinski. This is an album dealing with loneliness – an was recorded in loneliness: Dyjecinski (christian name Arthur) has written his songs in remote huts, recorded them later with his 16-track machine, all by himself. thus he created a strange, sparse world. Amongst Dyjecinskis heroes you will find Neu!, Hank Williams, Charles Mingus, Skip Spence, Arthur Russell and Jason Molina. Almost all of this names you will be able to spot here. But also fans of Bill Callahan or Lambchop will be pleased."

Coming Up Next
Coming Up Next combines a rock and roll style with intricate harmonies to produce a unique classic rock sound that will blow you away! The original music performed by Coming Up Next has been in the works for years, as drummer Alec Norris and main vocalist Dan Gale have tried to find the perfect blend of talent and personality. In late 2015, the group finally found the right mix with the amazing skills of Arthur Daniel on lead guitar, and Matt Mikkelsens smooth bass lines. We are talking butter-smooth.
Hearts & Mines
Hearts & Mines is an Ottawa-based alternative group making a difference by making great music. Formed in 2009 by Matt Luloff (lead vocals, guitar) following his military service in Afghanistan, Hearts & Mines delivers powerful and emotionally charged songs that cut through the sonic clutter. The lyrical poetry of Luloff's songs is driven home by a full band including Jason Watts on drums and backing vocals, Rob Hanlon on bass and Michael Pineault on keys. Resilient, zealous and emotionally raw, Hearts & Mines strike a nerve with listeners, reminding them of the injustice of this world and pushing for change.
