This week on TransCanada Music West, we’re taking a sonic exploration north of 60 with two emerging acts from Whitehorse: rock n’ roll trio The Midnight Sons Band and the roots outfit The Bennett Sun, recorded at Wood Hall in Victoria during Breakout West 2015.
On the heels of their 2015 debut, Traction, The Midnight Sons band are already drawing comparisons to Canadian hit-makers The Sheepdogs. You’ll also hear shades of pop rock influences like Kings of Leon and The Black Keys.
The Bennett Sun lead by songwriter Dana Jennejohn, formed a little over 5 years ago. The group has been meeting weekly to share dinners over jam sessions for some time now. The band describes their sounds as “tumbleweed pop and city folk”, and their live set includes original songs and traditional folk numbers.
