Father Moon hit the scene in the spring of 2018, and since then have spent most of their time in the studio cultivating their sonic identity. With slow and sludgy riffs, dark and heavy tones, including the use of heavily affected and operatic vocals, Father Moon evokes a unique musical experience.
Woodhawk with Crooked Spies, Fear The Mammoth and Father Moon
Woodhawk with guests Crooked Spies, Fear The Mammoth (Edmonton) and Father Moon @ Dickens Pub February 21, 2020
Woodhawk Between earth and sky, heaven and hell, darkness and redemption lies the realm of Woodhawk. A rock-solid three-piece bound together by the ties of brotherhood with an uncompromising sound honed on the whetstone of personal hardships and heavy tidings. Arriving on the heels of their previous LP, Beyond the Sun, Woodhawk’s latest offering, Violent Nature, resonates with brutal honesty and hard-won acceptance. From the clean tones and heart wrenching lyrics of vocalist/guitarist Turner Midzain, to the indomitable rhythms of bassist Mike Badmington and drummer Kevin Nelson, each song represents a chapter in the band’s big book of tribulations. Journey from dawn to dusky in one fell swoop as Violent Nature delivers its gutsy message from death’s doorstep to your trembling ears.
Crooked Spies Sweaty palms and beat red bliss, broken strings with an electric kiss. From an outsider looking in this concisely paints a picture of Crooked Spies, a four-piece rock band hailing from Calgary, AB. Fronted by brothers Dylan and Steven Evanik, the group spans the entire spectrum of the genre. Influenced heavily by the garage rock revival, they adhere to a raw & natural, "passion vs. fashion" approach to the art form having been compared to acts such as The Black Keys, RATM and Danzig.
Fear the Mammoth Starting out young. Based from Edmonton AB. Benjamin Stivicic And Patrick Santos new they were ment to rock the stage together. Trying out different instruments they realized the best sound they could get was just from the two of them. FINALLY in 2016 FEAR THE MAMMOTH was born! With Bens heavy fuzz guitar and Patricks hard hitting drums their surf/garage rock/punk sound is sure to make heads bang. Leaving it all on the stage their energy makes people wanna jump and their rhythm make em wanna dance.
Father Moon Four musicians combining operatic vocals, atmospheric guitar, melodic bass and versatile percussion. With slow and sludgy riffs, dark tones of eastern influences, including the use of heavily affected vocals, Father Moon evokes a unique sonic experience.
