In the spotlight: Saints

Saints are a band from Glasgow, Scotland who are based in Denver, Colorado in the USA. Brothers Rob and Lewi Gault moved from Scotland to America to start a band on a different horizon, in need of a change form the grey skies of their upbringing. Blaine Schult, an American, is the third member of Saints. Saints began life as a brit rock outfit, modeled on early Oasis/Charlatans/Stone Roses. This was something different for Denver, a heartland Island in the American west and initial reviews were mixed with a stoic few championing the cause. In spite of local indifference, Saints managed to release 'Saints E.P.' to universal acclaim from critics in the US and UK alike. Billy Sloan of The Scottish Daily Record called Saints "The best new thing I've heard in ages". The E.P. was followed up by a similar double A Side "Things Pass Away/This Is How It Feels'. These initial releases were enough to secure a sold out show at Denver's famous Bluebird Theatre and a support slot for Smashing Pumpkins and Colorado band Flobots in 2009. In 2010, Saints unleashed a new sound, spearheaded by the release of 'Dark Country', a darker, more ominous and rhythmic sound which met with praise from far and near again. The new sound paved the way for Saints to record new material in the mould of Dark Country which will be released steadily in 2012. In October 2011, Saints signed with Crucial music licensing company in Hollywood, California. In December the same year, Saints also had 'Dark Country' placed in rotation in Colorado on KTCL 93.3 FM. As of January 2012, Saints are currently recording again with plans to release early in the year.

In the spotlight: Canasta

Canasta composes music for films, music for TV, music for radio, music for videos, music for advertisements, music for commercials, music for ads, music for games and music for websites.

Living amongst the immense musical talent in a city like Chicago is eternally inspiring. But standing apart from the crowd can be a never‐ending challenge. So Canasta came together in early 2002 when six friends joined forces and augmented the standard rock set‐up with piano, violin, keyboard and trombone, in an effort to craft a more ambitious strain of majestic, ultra‐melodic, orchestral pop. Canasta songs are nothing if not eclectic; you’ll hear everything from bouncy, horn‐spiked ditties and sweeping, heart-breaking epics to moody, country‐tinged narratives and rollicking, guitar‐driven anthems. But what’s constant is an emphasis on sophisticated songwriting, dramatic dynamics and meticulous orchestration that has won them comparisons to Arcade Fire, Belle & Sebastian, The Decemberists, The New Pornographers, Sufjan Stevens and Wilco.
