Edmonton-based Altameda (æl-tah-MI-da) formed out of a recording session for singer-songwriter Troy Snaterse, but quickly became a group effort to create something bigger. Despite the four- piece finding their roots in various genres, they felt compelled to blend their individual styles with the influences that shaped their earlier years. During the sessions for the group’s debut LP, Dirty Rain, it was clear that the band felt a chemistry that only arrives through shared experiences.
Dirty Rain was toured extensively across all Canadian markets as well as the UK and spent five weeks on the CKUA Top 30 Charts, eventually reaching #1. The band has completed their sophomore full-length album with producer Aaron G...oldstein (City & Colour, Daniel Romano, Kathleen Edwards) with an anticipated 2018 release date. Altameda has supported Sam Roberts Band, Plants & Animals, Kacy & Clayton, Reuben & the Dark, and SUSTO.
The Redhill Valleys are country and roots Rock band from Hamilton, Ontario. Last summer, they were named runners-up at the 2017 Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists Showcase and have since gained a lot of traction and fans in the Canadian Country music scene. Following an East Coast tour, the band was chosen as the CMAO Artist of the Month last October, and also awarded as finalists in the 2017 Canada's Walk of Fame Emerging Artists Program. Their influences come from iconic artists such as Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Tom Petty and The Band, while forging a musical path all their own. Their unapologetic stage presence, unforgettable melodies and grit-infused harmonies are putting The Redhill Valleys on the Canadian Country Music map as a band you don't want to miss.
