Kingdom of Birds “A remarkable band made up of remarkably young musicians” (Globe and Mail), Kingdom of Birds have been grabbing the attention of unsuspecting audiences, international music blogs, and well-known musicians alike. At an age when most kids are only becoming aware of popular music, Kingdom of Birds (ages 9-14) have recently released their third collection of original songs (this one recorded by Aaron Holmberg, formerly of the Tragically Hip’s Bathouse Studio). Their song "Ása Dreams of Broken Social Scene" was featured as a Spotify Fresh Find and has now been played more than 50,000 times. The band made its major festival debut at Field Trip this summer. Prior to that, KOB opened the 2016 edition of Sarah Harmer’s and Luther’s Wright’s annual holiday rock show, and guitarist/vocalist/principal songwriter Ása Berezny toured with the Hidden Cameras, a trip that included a stop at Massey Hall. The band will return to the studio to record a new batch of songs this summer.
Ghost Caravan Ghost Caravan, also known as Shaina Silver-Baird, combines elements of electronic, soul, and orchestral music to create her powerful, emotional songs. Featuring collaborations with members of Grand Analog, Martha & The Muffins and The Weeknd, the songs are both dark and uplifting - pairing intimate lyrics with grand, sweeping tracks.
RVNNERS RVNNERS is a four piece band set to release its debut EP of uplifting indie pop anthems. Their soaring music and introspective lyrics blends the dark intimacy of The 1975 with the emotional drive of Maroon 5. In their previous form as Tiny Danza they won Indie Week International based on the strength of their dynamic songwriting and engaging, high-energy live shows. After returning from their showcases in Europe they landed a record deal with Wax Records/Universal, a collaboration with prolific producer Jimmy Harry (P!nk, Madonna) and had their track Beat Fly featured on Xbox’s Rock Band video game.
Wild Planes Wild Planes is a fun high energy Pop/Rock band from New York City! Since their formation about a year ago, they have been able to play with Cee Lo Green, Def Leppard and other awesome headliners. Check out the boys at their Indie Week Concert!!
