ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
The Bros. Landreth
Before they were The Bros. Landreth, Joey and Dave were only looking for a good excuse to spend a little more time together. One particularly long and challenging tour prompted Joey to call his older brother with a simple proposal. “When I get home, let’s sit down and make some noise together” would be the call that would be the turning point – seeing them focus on their own roots rock sound that went on to be celebrated on their acclaimed debut album, Let It Lie. Originally released in their hometown of Winnipeg in 2013, Let It Lie was re-released in 2015 after signing a record deal with Nashville-based Slate Creek Records. The album received widespread acclaim, won multiple awards including a JUNO, and propelled the band to play over 400 tour dates around the world. A Rolling Stone review praised the band’s “quiet storm of slide guitar solos, blue notes, three part harmonies”. ’87, the new album, soon to be released on the band’s freshly mined label Birthday Cake (The Orchard/Sony), is an exciting evolution of the band’s sound, honed by thousands of hours on stage and filtered through the lens of the last many years on the road. “We’ve got hundreds and hundreds of shows and thousands and thousands of miles under our belts. This next record has a confidence that we didn’t have - couldn’t have with the first.”
Shantaia is a Country Singer/Songwriter hailing from Saskatchewan, Canada. With her powerful vocals and smooth tone with a hint of rasp, Shantaia’s voice, much like her name, is unforgettable. Shantaia had released two singles to Canadian Country radio in 2016, and since then has been working on new music with her team. She has toured the festival circuit, playing Country Thunder Saskatchewan, Dauphin’s Countryfest, North by Northeast and Cavendish Beach Music Festival as well as opening for countless Country Artists from The Bellamy Brothers, Charlie Major & Kane Brown to Ryan Hurd & Emerson Drive, and most recently, Chris Lane and Cold Creek County. Shantaia is now looking forward to showcasing at CCMA’s in Calgary and her very first showcase in Nashville for Americana Music Festival and Conference.
T. Buckley’s songs blew across the prairies like a Nor’easter, hanging on to their creator as he stormed into the Calgary scene. With his family’s Atlantic roots anchoring his country sound, he produced three albums with renowned Calgary group The T. Buckley Trio. Buckley could have kept his tunes on the straight country roads between Red Deer and Nanton, Lethbridge and Fort MacLeod. Instead he veered off course, landing in the Banff Centre for the Arts for its inaugural singer-songwriter residency. Grammy nominated recording engineer Howard Bilerman awaited the new compositions, an unnerving prospect for Buckley. But the in-studio chemistry was undeniable, and soon Buckley found himself on a new stylistic route. Miles We Put Behind is the result of that collaboration, a collection of songs interrogating what it means to be a husband, father, and keen observer of the world around him. His new sound represents his personal transformations, revealing a more vulnerable self on songs like “Least a Man Can Do.”
