The Living, with Pugs & Crows, E.S.L.
Violin fireworks. Lush string textures. Colossal walls of sound. The Living fuses classical chamber music with rock, metal, funk, world music and jazz. The band's line up features violin, viola, and cello, in addition to guitar, keys, bass, drums, and vocals. At once bombastic and eloquent, this Vancouver powerhouse careens through genres, taking listeners on a kaleidoscopic sonic journey.
Pugs and Crows
Instrumental band that performs original music that evokes a shifting range of sonic colours and ambient soundscapes. The ensemble’s unique cinematic sound is due in part to the unusual instrumentation of violin, double bass, guitar, piano, and drums. Winner of the 2013 Juno Award for Instrumental Album of the Year.
Inspired by their uncles Jack Daniels and Neil Young, this chamber pop quintet veers wildly between Polish cabaret, orchestrated pop and playful hip hop jams.
