NQ Arbuckle
NQ Arbuckle
Drunk dudes from Huntsville or Lethbridge or St. John’s or wherever hang on every word. Everyone sings, mostly louder than the band. The word motherfucker is a compliment. Every show is an uprising, a groundswell.
Don’t let the self-deprecation or inebriation imply that NQ Arbuckle isn’t serious about the music. This band has earned multiple Juno nominations, considerable critical praise (Pitchfork, Globe and Mail, Toronto Star etc.), and a legion of rabid fans.
NQ Arbuckle has consistently created impressive, treasured albums for more than a decade. But NQ Arbuckle has never made a record like this before.
Six Shooter Records is very pleased to finally confirm the release of The Future Happens Anyway, out April 29, 2014.
NQ Abuckle are: Neville Quinlan, Mark Kesper, Peter Kesper, John Dinsmore, Jason Sniderman
Kacy & Clayton
Kacy & Clayton
The music of Kacy and Clayton exists outside of time, and burgeons with beautiful contradictions. It’s psychedelic and traditional, contemporary and vintage, melancholic and joyous. All at once, it showcases a slightly psych-folk sound of Linda Perhacs, Fleet Foxes, and First Aid Kit; rare country blues records and English folk tunes; and 1920s disaster songs and murder ballads. Their songs often are sugar-coated pills, tales of murderous jealousy, dilapidated graveyards, and infanticide, all delivered with Kacy Anderson’s sweet, lithe voice, and Clayton Linthicum’s hypnotic fingerpicking.

Their latest album Strange Country, strays away from straightforward folk, delivering a sound that pairs Laurel Canyon vibes with Dustbowl-era drama. And for the duo, the subject matter is literally close to home. They’re second cousins who have grown up in the Wood Mountain Uplands, an isolated region of southern Saskatchewan. It is ranch country, very remote, with a landscape punctuated with hills, 12 miles from the Montana border. Neighbors were scarce, and their school bus ride was a long drive into town. “Where we come from it’s kind of a step behind society,” Kacy, 19, says, “We had a lot of time to take in our surroundings. Characters are still very strong.”

Twin Flames
Twin Flames
Twin Flames is a captivating duo that combines two accomplished and very unique singer songwriters Chelsey June an Algonquin Cree Métis Woman from Ottawa and Jaaji an Inuk Mohawk man from Nunavik and Kahnawake. Despite polar opposite backgrounds Twin Flames found a common musical language. Together they take the audience on a musical journey across Canada and the Arctic, they echo the voices of their ancestors and depict life on the land as they sing songs in English, French and Inuktitut. They leave audiences fascinated and intrigued.

At the 2015 Indigenous music Awards Jaaji’s album Nunaga won best Indigenous Language/Francophone Album of the year and Chelsey June’s Album Finding me was nominated best Folk Album.

Jaaji and Chelsey met in the summer of 2014 during the filming of the television series TAM (Talent Autochtones Musicaux) for APTN which both were chosen to appear. Their voices matched one another perfectly right from the start creating soothing melodic harmonies. The two decided to form Twin Flames several months later.

The joining of the two artist was in a sense an experiment. Jaaji was already well known across the arctic and his music was loved and embraced by many. Chelsey also had a following of fans that had taken to her roots story telling music. Starting out on a summer tour in 2015 and recording a joint album Twin Flames was a gamble. The pair were not sure how they would be accepted because of language barriers in the North and the South. Would the Inuit people be open to Chelsey June’s English/French language music? and would the people of the south be open to Jaaji’s Inuttitut language music?

The Summer tour turned out to be a great success. The openness did not always come right away but once people heard the music of Twin Flames the barriers seemed to disappear. The combination of both their talents proved that music should not have a language, colour or race. Music should be about how it makes the listener feel.

Twin Flames have now played over 500+ shows in under 2 years. Twin Flames share a great ability to covey emotions through their lyrics and melodies. Together Jaaji and Chelsey June leave audiences feeling fascinated, moved and inspired. Audience members have expressed their deep gratitude for the stories that Jaaji and Chelsey share along with their love for the original songs that fill people's hearts with so many emotions. The Duo released their debut Album "Twin Flames Jaaji and Chelsey June" on December 1, 2015. It is now available for download on iTunes and CDbaby. Their combined musical backgrounds and experience make this album completely unique and a treasure to discover.

They won Aboriginal Songwriters of the year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards 2016. The Native American Music Awards nominated Twin Flames best new duo and Best Folk Album 2016.
Their hit song Porchlight made it to #1 on The National Aboriginal Countdown and is being played across Canada and the United States. They also released a music video for Porchlight which was sponsored by Pauktuutiit. There song was written to raise awareness for missing and murdered Inuit/Indigenous woman and the families that are left behind. You can check out the video on youtube: Porchlight Video - Twin Flames
