The Stringers are a 4 piece highly energetic alternative rock ensemble hailing from West End Ottawa. Songs of highway driving, the best nights of your life and where home is are woven by dancing melodies and a strong back beat. They take many influences from Ottawa's local, propelling music scene. All they want to do is make friends and see you sway.
Their debut EP, "See You At 7" is available now, take a listen!
Music your dad used to listen to with his buddies.
The Kents are four indie-pop obsessed boys from the town of Lindsay, Ontario.
Waking EP, produced by Derek Hoffman (Elwins, DCF) at Fox Sounds in Toronto with mastering from Dan Weston (Shad, City And Colour), encapsulates lyrical explorations of family, loss and separation from the comfort of adolescence with a hook-hungry, pop filter that controls the chaos.
Formed in 2010, The Kents is comprised of Warren Frank (vocals), Freddy Kwon (guitar), Luke Shauf (bass) and Tanner Paré (drums).
Their energetic live performance has shared various stages with The Trews, The Strumbellas, Ben Caplan and taken notable venues like Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace and the Historic Red Dog in Peterborough hostage in hot pursuit of affordable, communal celebration.
“The Kents are packing a serious punch.”
– Alan Cross, A Journal Of Musical Things
“The Kents play a modern form of urgent Canadian indie rock, reminding me of Arkells, Wolf Parade and Hollerado.”
– Grant Lawrence, CBC Music
