Long Range Hustle

If you’re new to a Long Range Hustle show, it only takes a minute to feel how their contagious energy connects with everyone in the room. From a sweat soaked club to a breezy festival stage, Long Range Hustle brings the warm infectious melodies, driving rhythms, and gorgeous harmonies, in spades.A mix of high school and summer camp counsellor tenures brought the core of this southern Ontario five-piece together -Paul Brogee (vocals, guitar, violin),JayFoster (vocals, piano), Mike Brogee (bass, vocals), and AJFisico (drums, vocals) with Ryan Pritchard (guitar) solidifying the line up in early 2017. Each of the five members come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to rock to classical, but all share a common love for songwriting and performing. The upcoming February 15th 2019 release of their new album, Town, brings the dawn of a new chapter for LRH. A recording session at The Bathouse Studio near Kingston, Ontario with acclaimed Scottish producer and mixer, Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Wintersleep, Snow Patrol) brings about a refined and evolved sound for the band, reflective of their persistent drive to push themselves.The band started to gain momentum with the release of “From Seedlings to Saplings...”in 2016. Confront Magazine noted, the sound “strays from the guitar-drums-bass formula to incorporate violin and piano in every hook-laden song.” Over the last few years, touring has taken them from the Maritimes to Manitoba, they’ve shared stages with Arkells, Matt Mays, Big Wreck, and delighted hometown crowds with month-long residencies at Toronto’s Dakota Tavern.

TOURIST COMPANY

In an industry as volatile as the music business, making a career as an indie band can seem daunting, if not downright impossible. For Tourist Company, the Vancouver-based musical duo of Taylor Swindells and Brenon Parry, they haven’t let the uneasiness of their life choice hinder them in any way. In fact, they seem to have taken that tension and used it as creative tinder.

When they met back in 2009, they knew the ease and openness of collaborating on music together they had was unique. Fast forward to 2013, when they decided to make it official, and formed Tourist Company. They released their debut record Apollo to critical acclaim in their home country and toured it relentlessly across Canada and the world, playing shows in the United States, Europe, and Mexico. Both also took a break from touring together and their own music to lend their talents to touring with other groups before finally coming back to their primary project. After so much time away, both Swindells and Parry felt ready to hole up in the studio and hone in on what their own music needed to say. On Apollo, Tourist Company explored the parallels between their own lives and the vast mystery of outer-space. The music they made on their last album was far-reaching; cinematic and grandiose. This time around they’re keeping both feet firmly planted on Earth, choosing instead to follow a more introspective route. Their new album is rooted in a creative experiment undertaken by Taylor. “I was thinking about the way we process life in the 21st century. How we interact with tragedy and bad news. Those moments carry a sense of urgency and I wanted that to invade this record,” he said. We often hear artists talk about fanciful escapes - buying property in a remote part of their country, or a sojourn into the wilderness. Taylor’s escape was more restrained, yet his personal parameters he set out for himself yielded the escape he needed. “We had access to this heritage house in a historic neighbourhood with high vaulted ceilings and a grand piano in the front room. I brought all my equipment and set up a creative space with guitars, amps, synths and recording gear, all orbiting around the piano. I startedworking and stayed up for 72 hours straight, just writing.”

As Taylor began what ended up becoming a 2 year writing process, the outside world seemed to volley between chaos and calm. A rise in nationalism, protests, the increasing presence of artificial intelligence, and natural disasters, all topped off with an overlying feeling of unease in a mounting arms race between two great nuclear nations. “I had just planned a road trip down the West Coast of the United States and was reminiscing about my childhood fascination with volcanoes. They became an image of volatility and uncertainty and these songs took their form: an expression of what processing disaster feels like. ” Tourist Company's new single "Conflicted/Restricted" will be available on all platforms on January 25th, 2019. A new record will follow later in the year with details to come soon.
