Texas King is a band from London, Ontario known for their fierce live shows packed with serious energy. Despite forming in only September of 2012, the band has already earned themselves supporting slots for bands like The Trews, Mother Mother, USS, Paper Lions and The Beaches. In 2014 they won London's Jack Richardson Music Award for "Best Rock Group". With the release of their debut EP followed by extensive touring, Texas King is an up and coming band you will definitely want to keep on your radar.
Mosely is an Indie/Alt-Rock band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Dani Vézina (Lead Vocalist / fka: Dani Poisson) met her husband Mat Vézina (Bassist/Backup Vocals) back in 2003 at a church youth group. In the summer of 2004 the two started dating. Mat was a bassist in a metal band at the time with Dani's younger brother, Mike Poisson (Drummer/Vocalist). In 2005 after going to a concert with Mat, Dani confessed to Mat that she would love nothing more than to be the vocalist in their band. Mat and Mike agreed and the three of them along with a mutual friend began jamming. These were the early stages of what would eventually become their first real band, "Not Even Death" (2008-2012). After the departure of their long-time guitarist, Justin deBoer¹, the group soon realized that much of their style had hinged on Justin's wonderfully raucous musical taste, and they were being drawn toward a more alternative sound. Dani, Mat and Mike decided it was time for something new and after finding a replacement guitarist, they formed "Mosely"². In 2013 they toured through schools across Canada with the organization, "Live Different" and in those 80 dates the band learned a lot of hard lessons. With the time on the road now under their belts, they underwent yet another lineup change, and in early 2014, Eric Hitsman (Guitarist/Vocalist | formerly of, We Surrender) joined the band as the group's permanent guitarist, adding his strong male vocals to the mix. In 2014 they released their first single written with Eric entitled, "Friends" which was recorded in Ottawa by Steve Foley at Audio Valley Recording Studios. The band loved working with Steve so much that they returned to the studio to record their first self-titled EP which they all felt best represented Mosely's true sound. They released their EP on June 12th 2015 and less than one month later, Dani & Mat were married! They are currently writing for their next release while they play shows around Ontario and Quebec.
