Hearing Trees
Hearing Trees is a four-piece rock group from Winnipeg, Manitoba. They most often draw comparisons to Interpol, R.E.M, Matthew Good and Tragically Hip.

"Truly thoughtful and personal lyrics are somewhat rare in popular music, and Hnatiuk's mastery of language is something that sets this band apart," The Manitoban.

"…a promising debut from one of Winnipeg's most intriguing new acts," The Uniter.

Frontman Graham Hnatiuk's backdrop of reference-filled lyrics grasp the gritty, dry edge of modern life — from Canadian soldiers coming home from the Spanish civil war, through a swath of eclectic shards of culture.

Hearing Trees is at their best live, including their regular jam-space shows at "Suite 421," just outside Winnipeg's famous Osborne Village. Suite 421 is the band's rehearsal space and custom venue, where up-and-coming artists share the walls and stage for a completely bespoke, 100% local show every two or three months

The Hearing Trees debut EP is available for purchase now on Bandcamp, as well as streaming on Spotify and Rdio.
Moon Tan
Energetic. Funky. Progressive. Vintage. Rock n’ Roll. These are a just few elements that have forged together to create a unique yet very familiar sound, one that is cleverly harnessed by Winnipeg’s newest power trio known as Moon Tan.

Initially drawn together as a cover band, it wasn’t long before the group discovered their natural talent for creating catchy melodies and grooves. The trio –consisting of drummer Nicholas Kula, Guitarist Brady Mitchell and Bassist Adrian Dyer– soon amassed a large catalogue of instrumental material, but this music demanded a voice. After hunting throughout the city in search of a front man, Adrian decided to take the torch and undergo vigorous vocal training. The group hasn’t looked back since.

Very active in Winnipeg’s nightlife scene, Moon Tan never fails to turn heads during their dynamic live performances. What truly makes this sound unique is the technical expertise intertwined in their eclectic and electric sets. With funky, driving bass lines that lift you from your seats, beastly-intricate drum beats that draw you to the dance floor, piercing vocals and soaring-melodic guitar licks cleverly woven into the mix, this power trio packs a punch. “We enjoy dabbling in unconventional time signatures while still maintaining a common sound ground with our audience,” says front man Adrian Dyer. “Whether you’re into dance tunes or math rock, we’ll have a little something to catch your ear.” This is evident on Moon Tan’s track “Medieval Dance”, which lures you in as it transforms from a dance pop number into a psychedelic, jazzy breakdown, and then ties back neatly together at the end.
