Whitehorse

Six Shooter Records' Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet tie the musical knot with the debut of their new band, Whitehorse, marrying their talent and chemistry on stage as a smoldering duo. Gutsy and resolute in their pursuits of sound and substance, Luke and Melissa's fusion of the personal and professional brings to mind the road-tested romance of Johnny and June.

Individually, Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the independent Music Awards and the Polaris Prize. Together, Luke and Melissa create music that cascades forth, rushing like currents fluid and electric. More than the sum of considerable talents, Whitehorse showcases the rarity of true give and take in partnership, uniting falcon with songbird to dramatic effort.

The Humours

The Humours are an up and coming accoustic power trio centered around contemporary song, rock energy and the band's roots in traditional music. Well known in the Scottish music world for his work with The McKassons, Ryan McKasson brings traditional elements to the mix while also providing a modern edge to his fiddle and viola playing. Ashley Broder is a multi-instrumentalist who has played extensively in Celtic circles, notably with Jamie Laval. When her mandolin is not providing the rhythmic backbone to the group, it is complementing Ryan's fiddle with her sweet lyrical style. On guitar and vocals, Colin is the final piece of the puzzle, and his songwriting is the canvas upon whichThe Humours display their virtuosic instrumental interplay, generating an original sound that is described as "chamber-U2".
