The album, which finds the trio effortlessly weaving catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements, led to label signings and success across Europe and Australia. It also spawned number ones on CBC Radio 2 and 3, two Western Canadian Music Award nods, and numerous TV placements on major networks. Now, the band is ready to build on that success with their upcoming fourth studio album, Tough Luck.

Dear Rouge Phases Tour with Modern Space
Dear Rouge (Drew and Danielle McTaggart) has a new album that they can not wait to share with you. Their debut EP in 2012 led to another one, and the accolades began: a B.C.–based radio award, songwriting prizes, a record deal, charting singles, and a 2016 Juno for Breakthrough Group of the Year followed.

If Dear Rouge’s approach to Phases could be summed up, it would be “grit and gloss.” It sums up the balance of sheen (pristine synths, Danielle’s laser-focused vocals) and punchy grime (unfettered guitars, propulsive percussion)—and it speaks to “who we are as people.” 
Their yearning for equilibrium and authenticity was enhanced by their decision to produce Phases in studios across North America, and polishing the songs in New York City.

Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 1A8

Elliott Brood (Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin) is a three-piece Folk Rock Alt Country band. Their fuzzed-up roots music has always made for a frenetic live performance. That energy translated onto the band's five previous critically acclaimed records. 

In 2013 they won a Juno Award for their World War One inspired album "Days Into Years". They have been nominated for five Juno awards. In 2009 they were shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize and in 2012 the band was nominated for a Genie Award for their original song "West End Sky", featured in the film Grown Up Movie Star. 

Their style has been called everything from 'blackgrass' to 'death country'. Their sixth studio album "Ghost Gardens" alludes to a phenomenon whereby perennial gardens, having been abandoned for years, continue to grow and reappear. It began with the rediscovery of lost demo songs from a decade and a half earlier. Not often does a band get to rediscover their younger selves and get to alter that existence.

A Forest Of Arms is the sixth album from Tony Dekker's Great Lake Swimmers and the follow up to 2012's New Wild Everywhere. With a surging rhythm section, razor-sharp violin, and flourishing banjo and guitars, they have pushed their sound.

The title is taken from album track "The Great Bear," a song inspired by a trip Dekker took to the northern rain forests of British Columbia with the World Wildlife Fund. A Forest Of Arms also marks Dekker's 8th release of new material. In 2013, he released the solo album Prayer of the Woods, and in 2014, he released a tribute album for the artist-loving digital music distribution site Zunior on the occasion of its 10th year anniversary.

Megan Bonnell will open for Great Lake Swimmers.
