The Box Tiger
Formed in late 2009, The Box Tiger is an indie rock band from the outskirts of Toronto, Ontario founded by singer/songwriter Sonia Sturino. Although young, the sound comes off as mature and well organized, while still maintaining heart, intensity, honesty and a sense of fun. The Box Tiger manages to keep a D.I.Y. indie aura, while simultaneously creating pop sensible hooks that make the music accessible to the masses.Since the release of their debut album "Set Fire" in August 2013, they have toured actively across North America, and are now in the process of writing their next album.
- The band played on Sunday of the Spring 2014 Boston Calling festival on theRed Stage (Brand New, Tegan and Sara, Built to Spill; Blue Stage headliners were Modest Mouse and Bastille).
- Over the last 6-8 months the band has opened for Foster the People (direct support; Toronto), Metric (direct support; Portland, ME), Brody Dalle (Toronto), Circa Survive (Portland), Grizfolk (direct support; Boston), Kevin Devine (direct support, Toronto).
On the band's opening spot for Brody Dalle in May, Huffington Post wrote "Toronto/Portland, Maine, outfit The Box Tiger captured hearts with their energetic, artful rock. Sturino could be Toronto indie rock's next It Girl, but she's so much more than that."

Using quirky changes and delicate dynamics, Flying Pace is a band more likely to slowly seduce you than rock your face off. Kristie Redfield’s signature whispery vocals sing tales of cartoon villains and summer crushes while backed by multi-layered and weaving melodies that evoke bands like The Breeders, Sonic Youth and Flaming Lips.
