A little insight into Steam Whistle Unsigned: “Unsigned supports talented unconventional musicians with a passion and helps the indie music scene. Steam Whistle feels it’s important to stand out in the crowd and follow your dreams, so we offer as much support to musicians as possible.”
Unsigned has seen amazing talent grace its stage including The Rural Alberta Advantage, Dinosaur Bones, Young Empires, These Electric Lives, and more.
About the bands:
The Darcys upcoming record is produced by Murray Lightburn of The Dears and if that doesn’t say enough Greg Lawrence (CBC Radio 3) describes The Darcys as “a band that can easily be shortlisted for a future Polaris Prize.”
Wildlife is five, energetic, adventurous, youthful barbarians who recently had a showcase at the Canadian Music Week, and according to Exclaim Magazine are “filled with youthful exuberance and affirming righteousness”.
FREEDOM OR DEATH
Freedom or Death decided they are not followers and want to make music that they want to listen to regardless if it gets played on the radio or not. Seems as though the band has good taste with The Wall Street Journal naming Freedom or Death one of CMJ Music Marathon’s 12 best bands.
