New Music Monday…
The Walkervilles - No California
The trend continues as New Music Monday once again showcases a fantastic, Canadian band. I would go ahead and write a brief about the sound of The Walkervilles and the members of the band, but they’ve done such a wonderful job on their own website, that I will bring that here for your to see.
” The Walkervilles are a Motown/Rock influenced group from Windsor, Ontario, Canada; right across from Motown itself, Detroit, Michigan. The three piece is a sort of Ontario super group, combining Pat Robitaille’s unforgettable sultry voice with Michou member’s Michael Hargreaves and Stefan Cvetkovic. The duo in support of Robitaille adds thick layers of vocal harmony and rhythm, through groovy dynamic drum performances by Cvetkovic, and poppy lyrical bass performances by Hargreaves.
The group’s short existence has sparked excitement as their original songs have a freshness and sensitivity to classic soul. Songs vary from the effortless and upbeat, “Tell Me How You Want Me” to the slow and real talk’in songs such as “Get By” and “Stay Strong” which carry gospel influenced messages of struggle and hope from the heart of economy-torn America.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself…thus, I left it up to the true professionals. You really must take in the professionalism of The Walkervilles (yes they dress that awesome for their shows) for yourself. A great oppourtunity would be seeing them play the Hillside Music Festival next month. Check them out!
