About Elliott Brood:

Elliott BROOD’s brand of fuzzed-up roots music makes for captivating, frenetic performances, which also translates on the band’s acclaimed records. Elliott BROOD has won a Juno, been nominated for Genie Award and hit the Polaris Short List. Their style has been called everything from ‘blackgrass’ to ‘death country,’ but those descriptions don’t capture the transcendent heights of their unique approach to roots music. Work and Love, their most recent and most personal album to date, is the sound of a grown-up band searching their hearts for all they’ve lost and gained. They are presently in studio working on the follow up  album Ghost Gardens which is set for release in the Fall of 2017.

About The Trews:

The Trews are a Canadian hard rock band from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, consisting of vocalist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Gavin Maguire. The band is currently based in Toronto, Ontario.

The band started their career with the name One I’d Trouser, a line taken from a song in Monty Python’s “The Meaning Of Life”. They changed their name to Trouser, and eventually The Trews. They released an EP as One I’d Trouser, and a second EP under the name The Trews.

In the early summer of 2002 the band entered Rocksearch, a high-profile contest that is held annually by CHTZ-FM, a St. Catharines (Southern Ontario) rock radio station. Winning the contest would prove to be their big break as they soon landed a recording contract with Bumstead Productions Ltd.

Since then, the band has released five studio albums, three live albums, one compilation album, and five EPs. The Trews have also won a number of awards for their work, including: Seven East Coast Music Awards (ECMA), Three Independant Music Awards (US), and Five Juno Award nominations.
