Nominated for a 2013 Juno Award as “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year,” this Vancouver trio is comprised of three mischievous personalities who, when combined, form a dynamic live presence that keeps concertgoers captivated and on their feet. The band has been building their fervent live following since 2008 with countless tours across their native Canada, sharing the stage with artists like Family of the Year, Cat Empire, Xavier Rudd and Bedouin Soundclash, as well as at various festivals, including the Calgary Virgin Festival, Saskatoon Jazz Fest, Whistler Arts Festival and, most recently, the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival.

Since forming in 2005, Current Swell’s west coast influenced sound—an infectious combination of blues, roots, pop and rock—have earned the quartet scores of devoted fans from Canada to Brazil. The independent band started with modest expectations, playing shows in settings that ranged from backyards to beaches and using social media to grow their audience. Since then, they have supported artists like Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, K-OS, The Beach Boys, The Tragically Hip and more. Last summer, Current Swell not only headlined a Canada Day concert in front of a crowd of 45,000, but they also earned first place at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project, a professional development program designed to help emerging artists. Their new album, Long Time Ago, is out now.

Chosen as one of NPR Music’s "10 Artists You Should've Known in 2012," Brooklyn-based Savoir Adore combines melodic indie pop with dramatic narratives, Savoir Adore is “musically and lyrically brave” (NME). Formed in 2007, the fantasy pop-duo of Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro has become a fixture of Brooklyn’s indie scene. Following the release of The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and the Girl with Animals in Her Throat and 2009’s In The Wooded Forest, the New York music press embraced the fantastic self-released Our Nature. On June 4th, Nettwerk will re-release the album with new, previously unreleased tracks. Savoir Adore has shared the stage with MGMT, Los Campesinos, Ra Ra Riot, Oh Land and Toro Y Moi. The band returns to the road for several dates supporting Milo Greene.

THE CADILLAC THREE (featuring NW1 client Neil Mason)
This trio of Nashville natives was recently signed to Big Machine Label Group. Their sound hovers between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock and traditional Southern folk. Call it country fuzz, call it hipster-billy, call it any number of over-hyphenated, adjective-strewn things but when you boil it all down there's only one way to describe it: damn good music, as pure and refreshing as a country creek.

Thur, March 14 9:00pm – The Show @ Rebels Honkey Tonk

SHEL is four classically trained musicians who also happen to be sisters. From the artist colony of Fort Collins, CO, SHEL is sophisticated and youthful, emotional and lighthearted, classic and eccentric. Their engaging live show is marked with a prodigy’s creativity and a veteran’s instinct for entertaining. Audiences delight with their unique songwriting style and fresh, new sound.
