In his debut single This House, Manitoba-based artist Brenton David blends the sound of traditional Métis fiddle and contemporary Americana. Produced by Juno award-winning musician Murray Pulver (Bros Landreth, Ariel Posen), the work is the first glimpse into a unique process that marries the timbre of Indigenous music with the timeless storytelling of folk and country. Filled with imagery from across the prairies, This House feels like work that is sincerely Canadian.
Released in tandem, is an introductory course to Métis fiddle for aspiring musicians. The two-time MCMA award-winners free course, represents over ten years of experience teaching live workshops. Brenton was inspired to create the course after witnessing the lack of arts education in remote communities. David trusts his latest work will aid in the preservation of traditional music and excite the next generation of young musician

The Bloodshots are a Rock & Roll band from Western Canada. Their never-say-die attitude fuels the engine under the hood pushes these denim-clad rockers further down the heart-worn highway of busted bottles and broken promises. Destination? Rock & Roll Damnation. CJ’s in-your-face vocals cut over ripping guitars as the ear-drum assault announces that a high-energy stage performance is about to engage the audience with pure raw power.
Performing alongside Rock music’s greats including Finger Eleven, Buckcherry, Danko Jones, Moist, Econoline Crush, One Bad Son, Three Days Grace, Monster Truck, Steel Panther, SLASH, The Lazys, Jet Set Satellite, Hawthorne Heights and Senses Fail among many more. From small town dives to casino stages and concert halls, these blue collar boys have proven that they have what it takes to grab the next rung of the ladder.
With the support of Canadian FM Rock and Indigenous stations The Bloodshots have been expanding their listener base aggressively. Growing traction on streaming platforms has proven to bolster their already rapidly expanding base of fans through repeat listeners and playlist placement. Online might be your best shot at hearing the band on recording since they can’t quite seem to keep any physical copies on hand: that’s how quickly they’re selling them out, but it doesn’t stop there...
