The Washboard Union are a Vancouver-based country band. The group is formed by David Roberts, Brett Ellis, Chris “Dunner” Duncombe, Craig McCaul, Evan Bates, and Brendan Krieg. They released their first album entitled “The Washboard Union” in 2012.
Their latest release, an EP, is the group’s first major label release. On July 10, 2015, The Washboard Union will release, ‘In My Bones’, via Warner Music Canada and Slaight Music. The EP contains six tracks.
The release was my first introduction to the artist. After listening to In My Bones, I definitely wish I heard them sooner. Upon hearing the album, it has been constantly on repeat for me. There are not any particular songs that stand out for me, all of them are good. It is lacking in filler tracks.
The songs are simply well orchestrated with their combinations of instrumentals, vocals, and lyrics. The only negative thing for the album is its length. Although recognizing it is an EP, I wish it was longer.
If you are a country fan, I would highly recommend picking up In My Bones by The Washboard Union. If you are already a fan of the band, you will enjoy it. If you are yet to be introduced to the Washboard Union, the release is a good starting point.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
