From the mid-’80s to the early-’90s, The Grapes Of Wrath and The Northern Pikes were responsible for some of the catchiest and most heart-felt singles and videos to come out of Canada at that time. Fast forward some 20 years later and the vocalist/guitarists from each of these bands find themselves living just blocks away from one another in Toronto.

This realization led to Bryan Potvin (The Northern Pikes) and Kevin Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) getting together to hang out with a couple of guitars for some casual jams, and the conclusion: “This sounds good! Let’s do some shows!”

In February of 2015, the pair, now officially calling themselves Kane & Potvin, decided to see if that live chemistry would extend to the studio. They booked in time with Darryl Neudorf (Blue Rodeo, Neko Case, Lindi Ortega, Jill Barber near Orangeville, Ontario – coincidentally, the location of Bryan and Kevin’s first show together.

From the first rehearsal, Kane said both musicians saw that there was potential to present songs from the Pikes, the Grapes, as well as their respective solo material, in a way that listeners would find both fresh and familiar.

Over the year the duo has hit the road as often as possible, playing shows from coast to coast, and performing a mix of Northern Pikes, Grapes Of Wrath, solo songs, and, of course, debuting new Kane & Potvin material.
