Calgary, AB based folk/ Americana band is made up of Todd Stewart, Craig Aikman, Erik Allen, Aaron Scholpp & Charlie Hase. The band released their self-titled EP on November 18, 2014. The EP is made up of six full length tracks.
I enjoyed all six songs thoroughly, and found it hard to choose a “favourite”, so I’m not going to choose a favourite, I’m just going to talk about two of the songs, but I recommend you go buy this EP now, because each song is expertly written and performed.
The EP opens strong with “Heart and Kind” which immediately pulled me in, and I knew this was going to be a great collection of songs. I didn’t want to stop listening after the first track. On the band’s Facebook it says “Beautiful songs sung by beautiful people” and this quote is true, from what I’ve heard.
The other song that I feel the need to mention is the fourth track, “I’ve Been Living You”. I cannot get enough of this song, and it has been stuck in my head from the first time I heard it, but I don’t mind. I found myself singing along to the lyrics, “I’ve been living you all my life, cause I know you’re mine”.
If you are a fan of folk, country, Americana, or even pop, I highly recommend you head to iTunes and grab a copy, it’s well worth it!
