The Teskey Brothers
The Teskey Brothers
With its raw combination of soul and blues, The Teskey Brothers' debut album Half Mile Harvest dropped in 2018 and has quickly gained the attention of old-school music fans everywhere. Signed to prestigious indie label Glassnote Records, The Teskey Brothers are brothers Sam and Josh Teskey along with childhood friends Brendon Love and Liam Gough. Together they have amassed a legion of fans in their homeland of Australia and the word is spreading fast around the globe. Live highlights to date include Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, Bluesfest in Australia and World Fest in California, as well as sold out shows across USA, UK, Europe, Japan and Australia.

Onstage The Teskey Brothers are as tight as any in the game. Josh Teskey's smoked whiskey vocals are captivating, while his brother Sam effortlessly throws down the tastiest of blues licks over Brendon and Liam's irresistible stripped-back groove. Audiences are awash with nostalgia and love for this new favorite with a Motown sound.

Don't miss the rare musical gem that is The Teskey Brothers when their incredible six-piece lineup tours through North America this Summer.
Beams
Beams, a Toronto-based eclectic folk septet, is the brainchild of Anna Mernieks (banjo, vocals). In 2011, she put out a call on facebook to have friends she invited friends hang out at her apartment and flesh out her songs. Mike Duffield (drums), Heather Mazhar (vocals), Keith Hamilton (singing saw, vibraphone), Dave Hamilton (mandolin), Craig Moffatt (bass) and Martin Crawford (guitar, lapsteel) all showed up and continue to be members of the band today.

The band played a series of residencies around Toronto throughout 2011-2013 where they honed the songs that would make up their debut album. During this time they caught the ear of Grammy-award winning engineer Peter J. Moore (Cowboy Junkies, Neko Case) who recorded the band. Beams' 2013 debut Just Rivers was met with acclaim, with NOW Magazine's four-star review as “an album that never repeats itself and is full of unexpected nods and surprise turns.”

In 2014, Beams worked with acclaimed musician/producer John McEntire (Tortoise, Broken Social Scene) in Chicago and released a 7” called the “Gutters and the Glass." After touring Canada they decided to make their first foray into the United States, and recorded a version of the Kate Bush classic “Running up

That Hill.” January 2016 saw the band enter the studio to record their sophomore album with Ian Gomes at Union Sound Co. (Odonis, Odonis, FRIGS) They released the single “I Wanted to Tell Her” in 2017 with a video directed by Christopher Mills (Modest Mouse, Leonard Cohen), followed by the celebrated album Teach Me to Love in February 2018.
