A six-piece ensemble from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Royal Canoe give you everything, but on their own maniacally hybrid terms. It’s one thing to reference a particular style, or even a range of styles. It’s another thing entirely to grab huge handfuls of sounds from pretty much anywhere, throw them all together and come up with something both cohesive and totally distinctive – something that also happens to ripple and crack with energy. This is what Royal Canoe does best.
Royal Canoe’s debut LP, Today We’re Believers, was nominated for a Juno Award for Alternative Album Of The Year. The New York Times, Consequence of Sound, and KCRW all put Royal Canoe on their “Best Of” lists based on the band’s explosive live performance at CMJ alone. Currently, the six-piece is spending time in studio recording a follow up full-length album due to be released in 2016.
