About the musicians:
Shotgun Jimmie is a much loved Canadian indie-rock troubadour known for his catchy power pop and endearing charm. His blistering one-man band live show incorporates fuzzed out guitars, a modified drum kit, harmonica, and a magic bag of tricks. Jimmie is a road-tested indie-rock veteran, having toured North America and Europe extensively on his own and with seminal Canadian bands like the Constantines, Julie Doiron, Ladyhawk, and Attack in Black. A prolific collaborator, his backing bands have included members of Feist, City & Colour and Do Make Say Think, he appeared on John K. Samson’s Provincial, touring North America and Europe as lead guitarist and opening act.
Since leaving Shotgun & Jaybird in 2007, Jimmie has released a bevy of 7” singles, EP’s and five full length albums including the Polaris Prize nominated Transistor Sister and his latest Field of Trampolines, a hooky summer love letter to rock and roll and the road, recorded with Canadian indie legend Joel Plaskett (Thrush Hermit). He has been featured at Sled Island, Halifax Pop Explosion, NXNE, Pop Montreal and Slovakia’s Pohoda Festival. He lives in Brandon, Manitoba, a small town on the Canadian prairies where he is pursuing a fine arts degree, makes paintings, drawings and ceramics in addition to writing songs and tending the garden.
Ariel Sharratt & Mathias Kom
When Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom aren’t playing with their band The Burning Hell, they often record and hit the road as a duo. Last year they released Don’t Believe The Hyperreal, an album of duets about true love, awkward dancing, chihuahuas wearing reindeer costumes, and other important things.
Hailing from Medicine Hat, Alberta, camgee has been honing his songcraft and impressing audiences for years. Be it solo or with the defunct bands Tin Tin and Grom, camgee charms with winking wordplay and laconic introspection over chords and rhythms that evoke the heady delirium of a spent summer’s day. Truly a “songwriter’s songwriter” the next phase of camgee sees him backed by a ragtag rhythm section. Always moving onward and upward with his songs, camgee will put a smile on your face and a worm in your ear.
