Busty and the Bass
With their seamless blend of soulful hip hop vocals, rap, signature brass and synths, Busty and the Bass is ushering in a new era of genre-defying sound. After meeting in their first week of the McGill University jazz program, the Montreal-based nine-piece quickly shot up from parked house party jams to scorching live performances in front of thousands of fans across the US, Canada, Europe and the UK.
After building a dedicated international fan base off of the release of just two EPs – GLAM (2015) and LIFT (2016) – Busty is taking things to the next level with their forthcoming debut album, “Uncommon Good.” They’ve enlisted veteran producer and mixer Neal Pogue to guide the project, who is best known for his work with the likes of Outkast, Snoop Dogg, Earth Wind and Fire, MIA, Nicki Minaj, Aretha Franklin and Lil Wayne.
Busty’s natural chemistry and high energy live show have made them an instant favourite with audiences around the world. Whether it’s your first Busty experience, or you know overtime the cowbell comes in – you’re gonna dance.
Fuelled by a passionate desire to create a sound as unapologetic and powerful as the personalities within the band, pop-infused indie rock quartet MONOWHALES have taken the experiences gained fighting their way up the ranks of Toronto’s highly competitive music scene and barrelled headlong into the creation of their new EP Control Freak.
With the release of Control Freak in June 2018, MONOWHALES have been playing regularly across Ontario and are now preparing for a cross-Canada tour in the fall, and a trip across the pond for 2 performances at Germany’s famous Reeperbahn Music Festival.
Striving to create a unique sound that blends disco, pop, synth and smooth soul (think Sade meets Donna Summer meets Stevie Nicks), RALPH blends funky 1970’s bass with 1980’s style pop keys, while staying contemporary through vocal melodies and fresh synth sounds.
Most importantly, RALPH’s catchy dance tunes stay true to her narrative songwriting style, containing strong lyrical content that tell stories of jealousy, lust, deception, and strength.
