Golden Feather is a project started by Steve Kiely(Monster Truck) and Brad Germain (Dinner Belles, Coszmos Quartette), inspired by their love of the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, and other bands that like to jam and take the listeners on a musical journey. The group was set to play its first show in March 2020 when the pandemic erupted, ending all hopes of live performance. The members of the band worked on music remotely and released their debut album, Light On Water, in November 2020. You won’t want to miss it when the band finally starts performing in front of live crowds. Golden Feather’s show — a Dead-style, two-set evening — promises to be full of dancing, singing along, and good vibes, with the main focus being the give-and-take relationship between band and crowd. Kiely and Germain have been regulars in the Hamilton music scene for decades, along with the rest of the lineup: Ronson Armstrong on bass, Chris Wheeler on guitar, and Gareth Inkster on keys. Golden Feather will be recording a follow-up EP this summer with a mind to releasing it in the fall.

This event is 19+. Valid government issued photo ID is required in order to enter. Door time, set times, and event schedule subject to change. Event subject to change in response to municipal and provincial public health guidelines.

Critically-acclaimed Métis/Slovakian singer-songwriter Ruby Waters, often praised for her unique, raspy voice, evoking the enduring talents of Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse, has quickly garnered attention as a fast-rising indie alternative artist over the past two years. Hailing from the small town of Shelburne, Ontario, and the child of two musician parents, Waters was immersed in the world of music from the day she was born. She mixes modern tempos and catchy guitar riffs with a decidedly unrefined approach to every song she makes, maintaining a signature raw energy. Her most recent EP, If It Comes Down To It (Oct 2020), received worldwide acclaim, and features the single “Quantum Physics,” which amassed over three million streams in just six months, setting the bar for what’s to be expected from the young, soulful artist. In the same year, Waters peaked at #5 on Canadian Alternative radio and Rock radio with the single “Supernatural,” all of which culminated in her being chosen as Spotify’s Radar Artist at the end of 2020. Waters was hand-picked by international best-selling artist City & Colour to open for their U.S. tour with multiple sold-out dates in major US markets including New York and Los Angeles. She’s already captured the attention of Billboard, CBC, and NOW Magazine, and is celebrated for her music’s moody sounds and powerhouse vocals, coupled with her honest and unapologetic lyrics. Ruby Waters is strongly positioned for a fast ascension, with no signs of slowing down.

Supercrawl Presents Fast Romantics Sat Oct 30

FAST ROMANTICS

 TICKETS AVAILABLE THROUGH EVENTBRITE

In the two years following their 2017 LP American Love, Toronto-based Fast Romantics were living a double life between stage and studio. The band had earned a loyal following after NPR declared their hit Julia “triumphant,” endearing fans to their unique brand of irresistible pop hooks and anthemic live shows.

Singer-songwriter Matthew Angus’ emotive, personal approach to lyricism found the band breaking new musical ground and exploring more difficult themes. But as 2020 roared in — despite promises made from the stage — there was no new record. Battling a deep depression, Angus had been leaving every song unfinished, in what he describes as “a paralyzing whirlwind of self-doubt.”

The six-piece fled to California to find their footing, but news of pandemic border closures forced early flights home. In the air, Angus snapped out of his funk. “We had so many songs we were proud of. The world was telling us life was short. It was time to finish something.”

As the world hit the brakes, Fast Romantics stepped on the gas. Quarantined away in separate apartments, songs were finished remotely. They spent two weeks with Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National) via all-night video calls. Angus describes the process as “the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had with somebody I’ve never hugged.”

By April, “Pick It Up” was born, a lush collection of songs about self-destructive demons, about a world losing control, and about the hope that something better is around the bend.

Matt Holubowski‘s career has really taken off since the 2014 release of Old Man, a collection of folk songs inspired by his many trips and experiences around the world. The watershed moment would be the release of Solitudes (Audiogram) two years later. Produced by Connor Seidel, just as the previous and upcoming ones, the album introduced him to a wide audience who discovered his mercurial voice and captivating songs. Matt earned a Gold record for Solitudes as well as two ADISQ nominations. The Solitudes tour that followed the album’s release had him criss-crossing Canada, the United States and Europe, to perform nearly 200 concerts. In the Spring of 2018, he signed with the German label Motor Musik and the French label Yokanta, distributing Solitudes in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Belgium. Soon after, he participated in the Printemps de Bourges, toured Europe as support for Ben Folds, and performed in London’s Meltdown Festival at the invitation of The Cure’s Robert Smith. Returning to North America, Matt played summer dates at Bonnaroo, the Festival d’été de Québec, the Regina, Ottawa and Winnipeg folk festivals, and Osheaga, then a fall tour of the eastern US. In early 2019, Matt opened for singer-songwriter Dan Mangan in eastern Canada, a last waltz before retreating to the woods in Banff, Alberta, to write the songs for his new album, Weird Ones (released Feb 21, 2020). Slowly moving away from folk, he explores new sounds and fleshes out his songs’ arrangements in collaboration with his musicians, guitarist Simon Angell, bassist Marc-André Landry, drummer Stéphane Bergeron and cellist/keyboardist Marianne Houle.

A solitary and contemplative soul, Elliot Maginot enjoys exploring new sounds, refining textures, handling words and expanding his orchestrations. In 2013, following the release of his debut EP, Elliot carved out a place for himself on the Montreal music scene as an independent artist, which allowed him to perform throughout Quebec and to be noticed by the Indica record label which offered him his first record contract. His debut, Young / Old / Everything.In.Between, hovers between pop and folk rock left field. The album won him two nominations at the Gala GAMIQ, earned radio rotation at CHOM and CBC music and opened the door to perform in several renowned festivals including the Montreal International Jazz Festival., the Festival d’été de Québec, Le Festi-Voix de Trois-Rivières, Canadian Music Week (Toronto) and Aurores Montréal (Paris). After a 10-country tour, Maginot signed with Audiogram to launch sophomore album Comrades in November 2018. Co-produced with Connor Seidel (Matt Holubowski, Charlotte Cardin), this opus was decidedly more pop, but also more sophisticated and complex in its arrangements with sounds reminiscent of Phil Collins, The War On Drugs and Peter Gabriel. The record received unanimous critical acclaim and produced a chart single in ” Common Place”. In May 2021, Maginot returns with Easy Morning, an essentially acoustic album co-produced with Connor Seidel that combines the soft string arrangement, with warm brass and West African influences.
