About Josh Q:

In a blend of Inuktitut and English lyrics, The Trade-Offs sing the Arctic blues about universal themes of light and darkness and closeness and isolation. While the band is a staples of the Iqaluit music scene, they have played across Canada on big and small stages alike, including main stage performances at major festivals and at the iconic Cameron House in Toronto.
