“Sweet Alibi definitely belongs in the category of best Canadian folk-pop artists” - Coolibri GERMANY
The band is currently working on their fourth studio album with producers Matt Peters and Matt Schellenberg of Royal Canoe (Begonia). The album is set to be a melodic experience focused on hooky guitar lines and layered beats, inspired by the likes of Alabama Shakes and Bahamas. Sweet Alibi’s sound has been evolving and refining through their past album releases, extensive Canada wide and international touring, as well as a focused effort to draw on the creative efforts of their favourite influencers. Not yet titled, their next album is slated for release early 2020.
About Jonny Moonbeam:
Busy scrolling through his intergalactic newsfeed, lunar lad of mystery Jonny Moonbeam totally did not see that spy satellite he clipped, summarily crashing his spacecraft just outside Ottawa and catapulting right into the middle of a parliamentary debate on distracted driving.
He thought this was hilarious. Now stranded in Winnipeg awaiting ship repairs, he's been parsing CPAC and writing songs about Canadian politics and 21st-century living.
Digging on 90's Much Music reruns, vintage Brit rock and any singer whose ever raised a voice for social justice, Moonbeam (a dead ringer for Daniel Jordan of Red Moon Road) reveals a brand new 4 song collection of political rockers (Co-Produced with Rusty Matyas of Imaginary Cities and mixed/mastered by Grammy-nominated Phil Bova).
Tackling the Sunny Ways of a certain well quaffed PM, the non-existent clothes of an orange-tinted-emperor-baby-with-a-hand-complex and what it means to 'stand on guard for thee', Jonny Moonbeam waxes power-pop politically poetic.
