City and Colour, the moniker of St. Catharines, ON native, singer-songwriter Dallas Green, is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. His achievements include 3 JUNO Awards — including two SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR awards (2009, 2012), 7 Platinum-certified albums and 3 Gold-certified albums in Canada (City and Colour, Alexisonfire, and You+Me). Green’s latest and 5th City and Colour studio release, If I Should Go Before You debuted #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan, City and Colour’s third consecutive chart-topper in Canada. The LP also made serious waves internationally debuting at #16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and #5 in Australia where Green’s LP Little Hell went GOLD. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed debut, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Having performed to countless sold-out crowds around the world, City and Colour recently headlined his first arena tour across Canada, including 2 sold out, consecutive nights at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto.
Blue Rodeo – For close to thirty years now, Blue Rodeo has taken the road less travelled – and succeeded far beyond anyone’s expectations. The band emerged in the early 80’s as a countrified rock band in the era of hair metal and glossy pop. Their single “Try” became omni-present on radio across Canada and set in motion a three decade long career of headlining every club, theatre and arena in Canada. In 1993, when grunge rock was squeezing commercial rock off the radio, they recorded their most acoustic album, Five Days In July, and scored their biggest hit selling over a half million copies of that one record alone. Now, with their 14th Warner Music Canada studio album – 1000 Arms, Blue Rodeo’s successes are measured in terms that include induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (2012), receiving a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award (2014) and acknowledgement that the band has steadfastly defined itself by its own terms, and in the years that ensued, sold in excess of four million records.
The Strumbellas have trail blazed their way through 2016 since their critically acclaimed, chart topping single, Spirits, hit the airwaves in January. Not only did Spirits reach #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart in Canada and America, and the US Billboard Alternative Songs Chart, the track also went double platinum in Italy, platinum in Canada, and gold in America and Germany, and is one of the top 10 most streamed Rock songs of 2016 worldwide. Their epic second single, “We Don’t Know”, is burning up radio waves. Both tracks hail from the band’s new album, Hope. The Strumbellas have spent the year touring the world, playing sold out shows, and filled-to-the-rafters festival spots at the likes of Newport Folk Festival, ACL, British Summer Time, Rock En Seine, Lollapalooza and Osheaga.
Stars – Montreal band Stars debuted with an album of intimate synth-pop titled Nightsongs in 2001. Stars’ albums have always served as barometers of their makers’ emotional well-being; be it the romantic upheaval of 2003’s Heart and 2004’s Set Yourself On Fire, the newsticker-triggered discontent of 2007’s In Our Bedroom After the War, the downcast elegies of The Five Ghosts (2010) or the rejuvenation of 2012’s The North. Their 7th album No One Is Lost is both a celebration and a rallying cry to live for the night. The band is back at it and in studio writing more songs to break your heart for next year.
Dear Rouge is a JUNO award winning Vancouver-based electronic rock band formed in 2012 by Drew and Danielle McTaggart. Their debut full-length album Black To Gold (featuring the top 10 alternative radio singles “I Heard I Had”, “Tongues”, and “Black to Gold”) garnered critical acclaim and commercial success, with the duo receiving the 2015 SOCAN Songwriting Prize. Dear Rouge has toured the world and shared stages with the likes of Phantogram, Arkells and Mother Mother, including the highly praised and rocking performances at Osheaga, Squamish, Field Trip, Festival d’éte and WayHome. Dear Rouge is set to release their follow-up record in 2017.
