The Capital

A scruffy, rough-around-the-edges group decked out in plaid and denim, The Tortoise, The Hare & The Millionaire are grounded in a sort of no-nonsense, straight-shooting blues rock. However, the group flits effortlessly from genre to genre, not in a tacky way, but in a way that represents the grand scope of their influences, their willingness to play around and explore, and the continued growth of their relationships, both in terms of friendship and musicianship
Matt Steele & The Corvette Sunset blend the emotionally-charged, confessional balladry of Ryan Adams with the frantic, frazzled, up-tempo power-pop of Elvis Costello, retaining just a tinge of Steele’s moonshine-soaked Kentucky roots.
Winners of the 2018 Harvest Jazz and Blues Rising Star, The Backstays are a fusion of roots and indie rock that is both modern and classic. Lyrically, the songs talk about everything from love and loss, to alienation at the workplace, all while taking you through the troubles and turbulence of the industrial port city of Saint John.
