Mayhemingways are an eclectic and full-sounding duo from the musical hotbed of Peterborough, Ontario. Their music drifts timelessly between traditional music and something brand new. The band has been described as folk-rock with Cajun, bluegrass, and Celtic influences.
Lead singer Benj Rowland switches between accordion, banjo, guitar, and tenor guitar while holding down the bass with foot pedals. Josh Fewings plays drums, percussion and adds back-up vocals.
Mayhemingways have toured Canada relentlessly since forming in 2013. Coast to coast tours have become common place for the group, making new friends and fans across the nation with each tour. The duo will tour almost every province and territory in 2016.
Their first full-length album will be released early in 2016 and was produced and engineered in Nanton, AB by Steve Loree (Ian Tyson, Corb Lund, Petunia). The album is a follow up to their first EP (2013) engineered by James McKenty (Blue Rodeo, Cuff the Duke, The Weber Brothers).

Thomas Stajcer

From Halifax via hockey-stick making Hespeler, Ontario, Thomas Stajcer released his debut single last year, entitled "Sad Cowboy," a playful half autobiographical, half fantastical take on making the move East and what lays beyond. The country & western release includes B-side ballad "Love Me Now Or Never Again,” a co-write with Joel Plaskett, and both cuts feature an all-star cast of Halifax musicians. Stajcer is currently working on his debut EP “Will I Learn To Love Again?” - a tour of doubt and regret that culminates in that ultimate question.Stajcer is an audio engineer, record producer, musician, and singer-songwriter who has been honing his craft for years playing in bands The Yardies, James Bradley Band, and Daveband before finding his own voice in country music. He attended the Gordie Sampson Song Camp in 2016 and has co-written with some of Nova Scotia’s most talented songwriters including Joel Plaskett, Dylan Guthro, Dave Sampson, Steven MacDougall, Lauren Marchand, Eric Stephen Martin, and Campbell Woods
