YEG Music Presents:
STEAM WHISTLE MIDSUMMER FESTIVAL
(Bio Coming Soon)
The Corey Hotline: From the smoking ashes of Alright Gents, rises The Corey Hotline. The most serious (not serious) rock band from Calgary, Alberta. The Corey Hotline’s music is influenced by inanimate objects such as temporary glitter tattoos and stolen bowling shoes. It’s theme music for hot summer bike rides that result in skinny dipping in a public park or an aquacise aerobics class that turns into a cannon ball contest. The Corey Hotline is eager to please. The music is hot, heavy, and the phone lines are ready.
Free the Cynics:
'Free the Cynics defy the tired hat of rock ‘n’ roll and deliver something new and refreshing.' — Beatroute

Jonathan Ferguson and Long Jon Lev:
Featuring the thoughtful, poignant lyrics and memorable, hummable melodies of Canadian songsmith Jonathan Ferguson, Long Jon Lev’s Telltale Heart is an album by a band giving in wholeheartedly to their ecleticism and love of surprises. The ever-changing rootsy-pop outfit moves wilfully from driving (Atlas Let Go) to sweet (Girl I Know) to a rollicking, floor-stomping moment of self-reflection (Charity Quilt), all without giving the slightest hint of where they’re going next. Then they do it again.
It’s clear that Long Jon Lev lives to do just one thing: Play smart, catchy music that charms its way into your heart, turns on your brain, and tugs at your soul.
