Sam Roberts Band
This Montreal ‘real deal’ rocker’s signature anthemic, ultra-addictive melodies and musical breadth span power-pop, moody folk, extended psych-pop jams and full-on rockers. He’s an uncompromising, no-bullshit rock purist who can hold his own on the charts, has absorbed the most important lessons of music history and updated them with a renewed sense of urgency.
Sam and the bands’ songs are a plea against cynicism and complacency. They’re about ‘day-to-day’ issues - love, faith, compassion, struggle and transcendence - in metaphorically rich packaging.
