If you haven’t listened to Moscow Apartment before, you’re in for a treat. This Canadian indie rock band is based in Toronto, with folk tunes you can’t help but swoon over. The founding members are Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla, who aren’t a day over sixteen! With all that impressive youth and girl power, it’s safe to say Moscow Apartment rocks.
With their brand new album Felt just out, Suuns kicks off Camp Wavelength this year as the headliner. The Canadian rock band was formed in Montreal during the summer of 2007 when vocalist/guitarist Ben Shemie and guitarist/bassist Joe Yarmush got together to make some music… the rest is history, and the band is about to make some more at this years festival!
Chad VanGaalen is a multi-instrumentalist musician and artist from Calgary, Alberta. He’s got a massive cult following, and rightfully so; his combination of self-made sound and animation is outstanding… Seriously, the guy has never worked a commercial studio in his life! VanGaalen is rarely in Toronto, if ever, so local fans are destined to be ecstatic.
Indie rock band FRIGS are based out of Toronto and describe their sound as “sludgy” rock. Their 2018 album Basic Behaviour is reminiscent of 90’s grunge, was produced with Arts & Crafts, and longlisted for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize. With all this and raw lyrics, FRIGS is going to put on a show you definitley don’t want to miss.
Caylie Runciman, aka Boyhood, is a bad ass grunge chick who has a history of improvisation, when it comes to recording tunes, that is. Hot on the spot, she’ll make up a song. Boyhood is raw, real, from Ottawa, and a creator of unique sound… a musician to key an eye on!
