MOTION SOUNDTRACK has evolved into one of Canada's finest alternative pop groups. Atmospheric with driving energy and catchy melodies, they've garnered much attention from the music industry and music lovers alike. Their infectious tunes combine anthemic rock, traditional pop and splashes of art rock with dynamic musicianship, full-on walls of electric guitar and a spacious, mind-drenching sound. Having opened for bands like The Stereophonics and Idlewild, Motion Soundtrack is currently working on a new CD.

WHITFIELD have been generating extraordinary reviews and interest in the last few months, with the band recently receiving the "Best of The Fest" award at NewMusicWest 2006, the Peoples' Choice award at Toronto Indie Week, and "Best Alternative Group" at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Their musical roots are entwined with the UK alternative rock culture and possess a charming quality that combines sparkling soundscapes with powerfully layered dynamics. With haunting swells, high-pitched overtones, and lyrics of beauty and significance, Whitfield engulfs the listener, being heralded by The Kamloops Omega as "The Best Band You've Never Heard".

MAURICE - This talented band is best noted for its natural ability to incorporate old world melody with the intensity and verve of modern day rockers. Received with excitement and anticipation, Maurice approaches their craft with maturity, intelligence and heartfelt sentiment.

STRADA features melodic, progressive alt-rock/Brit-pop tunes wrapped in a charismatic, commanding musical presence with hook-laden guitars and edgy lyrics. Recently featured on MuchMusic's Going Coastal, Strada is comprised of Daniel Huscroft, Chad Thomas, Jeff Robertson and Nathan Giebelhaus, the latter three formerly of TOURIST.

Strada (Brit-Pop/Progressive Rock)

note: STRADA was formerly know as TOURIST, until a name conflict and confusion with the vancouver band, Tourist. It’s a nasty summer night in northern Alberta. The air outside is hot and wet. The air inside is even more disgusting. The place is packed, everybody’s wet, and the guy next to me smells like shit. It’s July in Edmonton, the ... more info
