The Rising Few
The Rising few are an eclectic Montreal band with a Springsteen-inflected sound of R&B-based rock-and-roll lead by Cairo born illustrator Karim Terouz.
Terouz’s commanding voice has a bit of a Tom Waits rasp and David Bowie waver to it.
‘’We’re all really recent immigrants here” sais Karim as he describes his crew as a band of young men from scattered points (Armenia, Russia, Brazil, Haiti, France and Canada) that seem to converge in their shared love for melodically constructed storytelling.
A wave of infectious good feelings comes through the band’s music, trading solos that feel like good friends having a jam session.
The Muddy Wheel
Just three years ago, Montreal singer/songwriter Michael Di Re was steadily climbing the corporate ladder, all the while seeking solace in songwriting. He didn’t think much of his songs at the time – songwriting was just something he needed to do. This all changed on a holiday to London, where Di Re began performing his original material in local pubs. The positive reactions he received took Di Re back to his days of fronting former alt- rock foursome: Dorelsion Lane. Back on Canadian soil, Di Re decided to seek out the right musicians with whom to build his new sound and record; thus The Muddy Wheel was born. Together, they bring a Northern-twist to the Americana scene we know and love.
The Muddy Wheel will release their first EP this Spring.
