One Bad Son
In their twelve years as a band, One Bad Son (also known as OBS) has achieved two Top 5 singles and five Top 10 singles, has performed with the likes of Def Leppard and Judas Priest and worked with notable producers such as Gavin Brown (Three Days Grace, Billy Talent, Metric, The Tragically Hip) and Eric Ratz (Monster Truck, The Arkells. One Bad Son have clearly made their stamp noticeable in Canada to date.
The band has spent years touring constantly, converting audiences and gaining legions of loyal fans across the country; with multiple sold out tours, support and headline dates. OBS is one of the hardest working live Rock n’ Roll bands and are known for their successful and captivating live sets.
Over the past year, OBS have been working hard in the studio on their fifth full-length release and a leading single Raging Bill due out February 2017. Singer Shane Connery Volk, drummer Kurt Dahl, guitarist Adam Hicks and bassist Adam Grant agree that they have never been so excited to release new music to their fans. «This is definitely a new OBS. I feel like we've finally embraced what we are and what we are is Rock n’ Roll!!! We've truly opened up and written songs that reflect the power and energy of OBS as well as expressing our eternal love for all the fans who keep Rock music alive!!” — Shane Volk
They couldn't have done album process this without the help of producer Gavin Brown and his work recording at the legendary Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, BC. „Gavin sees something in us that he doesn't see in bands anymore. Something collective and unspoken that happens when the four of us get in a room. It was our job to capture that thing and put it into song. I think we've done it, and written the best songs of our lives, but that's for the fans to decide.“ — Kurt Dahl

Whale And The Wolf
“Our goal is to immerse fans and new listeners into the world of Whale and the Wolf.” Reveals guitarist Brandon Yaggey, “We’ve created a sound that is intimate and electric, and imagery that pulls you deeper into what the band’s about. In 2017 we strive to make that much more front and center at our live performances, as well as how we present ourselves as a whole.”
About 4 years ago, Vocalist Ryan Maier, guitarist Brandon Yaggey, along with Bassist Lucas Holt, formed Whale in the Wolf in Edmonton Alberta. They assembled their unique Alternative Rock sound through the desire to create something not so obvious. In 2015, the self titled 6 song EP was released. The songs pulled you in emotionally, while packing a heavy punch throughout.
During the first week of it’s release, the EP reached #14 on the iTunes Rock Chart.
Through touring and the release of 3 singles, Whale and the Wolf were played on a number of Radio Stations across Canada (“Do it Loud”, “Domino”, “Shiver”) All songs broke into the Top 40. However, “Domino” smashed through Regina’s airwaves at (ironically) The Wolf FM, where “Domino” would became a TOP 10 played song.
The songs would also be selected by Canadian music curator – Alan Cross” as part of his weekly TOP 11.
2016 saw the band doing it right, by hitting the road. Whale and the Wolf has opened for acts such as Bush, City and Colour, Wolfmother, Awolnation, Mother Mother, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bleeker, The Lazys, The Wild!, One Bad Son, Theory of a Deadman, etc.
They closed off 2016 writing and recording 3 new songs with producer, Danny Craig, of Default.
Now W&TW is set to release these singles throughout 2017. Each song will be released individually with it’s own multi-media package representing each song.
Brandon Continues, “We picked the 3 songs that best encompass us as a band. The songs travel through a spectrum of the band’s overall vibe. Each one with it’s own distinct sound, yet when packaged together they compliment each other quite well.
The music, the artwork, our live show, and the videos for these songs are all tied together aesthetically. Although the artwork is quite similar in style through each song, we chose colours and imagery that best captured and connected with the music.”
