Haunted Hearts II
Haunted Hearts II

Talking Bands
by Fraser MacCallum

Haunted Hearts have made quick work of their goals list. Since beginning in 2008, the Charlottetown alt-country outfit have released two acclaimed albums, picked up a boatload of Music PEI trophies, logged thousands of kilometres in touring, and all the while continue to develop great new songs with a striking frequency.

Led by Sherwood-raised Dennis Ellsworth, the

Gordie & The Boys
Gordie & The Boys

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

While watching Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm boys jam out a high-octane live show, one can’t help but grin. It feels like, through a haze of home brew and hand-rolled cigarettes, you’ve stumbled into some late night kitchen session between the fiddler and his gifted bandmates. The attention to the craft is first-class and the on-stage synergy is the best.

During the

Tim Chaisson and Morning Fold
Tim Chaisson and Morning Fold

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

Tim Chaisson is an unlikely young star in pop music. Quiet, humble, and known for many years as a gifted instrumentalist, it would seem that a long and fruitful career as a sideman was a likely future for the Souris native. Chaisson has shaken those expectations, however, and these days enjoys an immensely busy schedule as the frontman of Tim Chaisson & Morning

Talking Bands (Guys)
by Fraser McCallum

Few PEI artists have kept a calendar as packed and professionally diverse as Charlottetown’s John Connolly. The past three years have been non-stop for the accomplished singer-songwriter, actor, producer, and upright citizen. Now, with a new album, a new car, and a few thousand kilometres to trek, Connolly is crossing the country on his first major tour.

Paper Lions Roar

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

You might not know it but Paper Lions are one of the busiest and most thriving bands on PEI right now and their success stands toe-to-toe with that of some of the best names in the Island’s music history.

The Charlottetown pop-rock group, known formerly as The Chucky Danger Band, consists of brothers John and Rob MacPhee (lead vocals and bass guitar, respectively),

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

It goes without saying that music is a beautiful, universal language. However, many dedicated musicians will tell you that it’s a slog to make a living at it and survive the industry’s countless pitfalls. When asked the simple question, “why,” Devin Casario responds quickly, “I love music. I love creation. I’m not a solo artist—I’m a collaborator. I love what others bring to a proj

Solid Gold Workout
Solid Gold Workout

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

PEI’s music scene is well represented in indie-rock, folk and traditional genres, but that depth drops off if you’re looking for live dance music. Enter Solid Gold Workout, a band that has been making a local name for itself with a balls-to-the-walls live show. “The music scene kicks ass here but there is very little electronic or dance stuff,” says keyboardist Bruce Rooney.

The Meds
The Meds

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

When the Meds’ bass player Brendan Hansen handed his band’s demo to Matt Mays he hoped the Canadian rocker would react. He hoped Mays, a multi-ECMA winner and touring artist, would pass it along to the powers that be, and that just maybe some good fortune would come back the Meds’ way. Well it took eight months, but Mays reacted in a serious way to the sound of the Charl

Late November

Talking Bands
by Fraser MacCallum

Charlottetown’s music scene has hit a growth spurt. Every week there’s a CD release and a new band jumps into the fray during this local music puberty. Enter Late November. The rock band is barely six months old but has already played several high calibre shows and is picking up steam.

The quartet is led by 20-year-old Sarah Sandford of Kings County, who easily garners

The North Lakes

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

When The North Lakes went into studio to record their first album, their drummer, Carver, was keen to be given a nickname by sound engineer Charles Austin, who is known to affectionately dole them out. Austin’s response was, “I don’t know if I like you yet” but before long, Carver found himself with a handle to be proud of—”Fat-head.”

Over a beer at Baba’s, Carver laughs i

Cashmere Disciples
Cashmere Disciples

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

Like so many lovely things, the Cashmere Disciples came from Shoppers Drug Mart. In 2004, lead singer Drew Heggie and drummer Joel Walker met while both working late shifts at the Charlottetown pharmacy. While they waited to go home, general male small-talk cut to the point, leading to the inevitable, “sooo … you play music?” question, and like that, the seed was planted.

The Danks
The Danks

Talking Bands
by Fraser McCallum

An interview with the Danks is kind of like stumbling into a family reunion at mealtime. It’s loud, chaotic, full of ridiculous inside jokes, and visitors can pop in at any moment.

Over the course of an entertaining hour together, conversation touches on their impressive year as a rising indie-rock band in Canada. Much of the time, however, examines heavy subjects such
