The Hightides and Elora’s Garden both make their Carleton débuts as Tevon Tynes & The Superstatics get a night off on Saturday, September 18th. Show time is 7:30 PM and tickets are $15 + HST.
The Hightides are a four-piece band from Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada. Formed in late 2019 at Acadia University, the band is known locally for its energetic and fun live shows as well as an appetite for a good time. After initially focusing on covers and honing their sound through live shows, The Hightides are ready to show the world what they can do.
“We are an indie rock band whose sound ranges from cleaner pop-rock tones to crunchy blues riffs. We combine each of our tastes in music to create a unique sound, drawing inspiration from a wide array of artists and genres. Each member of the band sings, writes, and contributes to original compositions.
Our performances are energetic, spontaneous, and lively. We love to interact with each other and members of the audience during our shows, charming them and drawing them into the performance. Our sets are dynamic, incorporating both high-octane rock songs and wistful ballads.
Since releasing our first original song in December, we have reached over 15,000 streams across four songs on Apple Music and Spotify.”
Elora’s Garden creates music in a category all of it’s own, with a mix of alt rock, indie, folk, punk rock, and a hint of funk. Audiences are taken away by the originality, dynamics, and variety of music the band puts out.
Singer/Guitar player Alec Robertson has been writing songs since the age of twelve. In 2019, he met drummer Alec Bloch, who brought energetic and technical percussion skills to Robertson’s original songs. The two played open mics and developed a following playing original music in Wolfville, eventually starting to play sold-out shows in bars across Nova Scotia. Soon after, bass player Jordan Dunham joined the band, adding a powerful and funky low end to the group. During the pandemic, lead guitar player Ayden Clarke became the musical cherry on top of the existing group, with interesting licks and mouth-watering solos.
Currently located in the HRM, Elora’s Garden continue to play shows for both familiar and new audiences alike, and they are incredibly excited to find new artists and groups to collaborate with.
