Fresh off the release of their critically acclaimed 3rd studio album, Lucky Lucky, Safe as Houses continues to push boundaries in the folk world with their genre-splicing alternative-folk sound, infused with flecks of pop and rock.
Armed with a collection of youth-driven anthems, this kinetic quintet has amassed a cult following, spiralling out from their hometown of Kitchener, ON, where bandmates Elliot Anton (guitar, vocals) and Bensen Carter (cello, bass, vocals), along with brothers Andrew Laughton (guitar, vocals) and Thomas Laughton (drums, vocals), laid the bands monumental foundation.

Basset is an all-acoustic group from Toronto admired for their “fresh and distinct sound”. Co-writers Yasmine Shelton and Sam Clark draw on folk traditions from both sides of the pond, with songs that will take you from a beekeeper’s fields to the haunted basement of a second hand store. Young and imaginative, their inventiveness is on full display in their use of fiddle, harmony, and Shelton’s commanding lead vocals. From tender ballads to driving blues, Basset’s style has been called “cinematic” and “full of timeless heart”.
