Album: Elliot and The Audio Kings-S/T
Release date: July 30,2016
Genre: Blues, Swing, Rock
This band Elliott and The Audio Kings has a great summer and pub music vibe. They hail from the Kitchener and Waterloo area in Ontario, which I’m sure has a good amount of places to jam!! You can tell the experience in the instrumental play and lyrics in their tracks.
Mike Elliott on the guitar/vocals, Jonny Sauder on drums, and Scott Fitzpatrick on doghouse bass create Elliot and The Audio Kings.
These are 2 of the songs that I enjoyed on their new album,
“Another Day Another Dollar”:
This is a song about working for a living, 6 days a week with the “another day and another dollar” mentality. The lyrics talk about spending your paycheck on beer and chicken wings, until the next one comes along. The only way to earn that dollar is by earning your keep even though no matter how hard you’re working, you never seem to get ahead! Love the energy in this song; it will certainly keep you moving.
An amazing lengthy track with awesome guitars singing loud and a slow drum beat with lyrics about his woman in the corner talking to another brand new band. This by far is my top blues drinking song. I like songs where they show their instrumental talents and keep the same pace.
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
