BreakOut West 2017 takes place in Edmonton, AB between September 13 – 17. The event encompasses the Western Canadian Music Awards, Industry Awards, Hall of Fame Induction, Industry Conference, Kick-off Concert and a city-wide Music Festival. It’s the place to be if you’re able! The Festival itself features over 60 of the best in Western Canadian bands and artists, and we are happy to chat with a few of them leading up to the event! For our first interview, we spoke with Manitoba based Kayla Luky, then Vancouver’s The Matinée. Today, the fun continues as we chat with Saskatchewan’s own, The Wolfe.
First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?
We are The Wolfe, an all-girl alternative rock trio from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
You are taking part in this year’s BreakOut West, what does it feel like to be a part of this event?
It’s such an honour to be representing the best up and coming artists in Western Canada, not to mention playing beside some of our favourite local bands.
What other bands/ artists are you looking forward to checking out at BreakOut West?
Definitely our Sask friends in Ponteix and Poor Nameless Boy, but also some of our favourite Canadian bands, Scenic Route to Alaska, and The Tourist Company.
Besides the performances, is there any other event that you’re looking forward to?
We’re looking forward to the Award Reception, as we’ve never attended something like that. But the whole conference as a whole is going to be fun, and the people we will meet will top everything off.
I hear there is a Closing BBQ on September 17, so of course, I have to ask, what’s your go to food to BBQ?
Definitely pulled pork if there is any.
Do you have any other upcoming shows that you’d like to tell us about?
No upcoming shows yet, but we have new music coming out shortly, which will lead to show announcements as well!
If someone has yet to see you perform live, how would you describe your live show?
It’s a high-energy show, with a lot of glitter. Be prepared to move and groove.
If you were only able to recommend ONE song for a new listener, which would you choose?
Here at Canadian Beats, we’re all about Canadian music, who are some of your favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
The Beaches, Good for Grapes, Marianas Trench, Down With Webster, July Talk, Half Moon Run, Fake Shark, Andy Shauf
What’s up next for you?
We’re releasing new music later this fall, and planning some more tours!
