Story by Dami Fadipe. Photos by Will Geier. With their electric tunes and soulful sounds, Shuffalo has managed to make a name for themselves in a short amount of time. After cementing their roster in early 2018, they quickly made moves in Calgary’s music scene, playing various venues and charming crowds with stellar songs. We reached out to the band to get a glimpse into how they are navigating the music scene in Calgary.

Cartel Madras

Story and photos by Claire Bourgeois. The very first time I met Priya and Bagya Ramesh, it was at a spoken word open mic night. I was serving at Koi at the time when the sisters took to the stage.

Travel through time, both past and future at The Blues Can Youth Jam – Hosted by The Marcus Trummer Band

Story and photos by Sara Kuefler. On November 5, a chilly, dark drive took me to the venerable Blues Can in Inglewood.  I knew a welcoming dimly lit atmosphere awaited me inside as I walked from my car.  As usual, the venue was filled with fellow music appreciators, and players ready to flex their skills. The idea of time travel pressed upon my consciousness as I watched the performances of musicians who graced the stage, beginning with the Marcus Trummer Band. 

DeadDeer: “Abraham Lake” EP release

By Sara Kuefler. Abraham Lake, the beautifully immersive new EP by Calgary chillwave artist and YYC Music Award EDM Recording of the Year nominee DeadDeer (aka Brent Rossall), will transport you. This makes sense considering when the artist first began making electronic tracks of his own in Red Deer, several years back, he found them a means to escape circumstances that were not bringing personal happiness.
