Bio

George Petko and the Soulshifters emerged from the Hamilton roots music scene three years ago. Drawing on country, blues, folk and soul and blending infectious pop/rock stylings into the presentation they quickly gained a respect and notoriety right out of the gate. They soon shared the stage with artists such as Juno Award winners Jack Dekeyzer and Tom Wilson at Hamilton's legendary Corktown Tavern. Corktown promoter and Mohawk College radio host Lou Molinaro said,"The band has a modern Dave Edmunds/Nick Lowe sound while leaving room to breathe." Ric Taylor interviewed George on his MacMaster radio program and urged him to release the preliminary mixes just as they were, remarking on their professional quality. Doug Foley, entertaiment writer for the Hamilton Spectator stated," I consider George Petko to be an up and comer in the southern Ontario music scene..."Presently the band continues to play live in the southern Ontario region while also concentrating on recording more tracks to form the debut release. George goes for the clean and up front honest sound of the band playing live in one room, keeping usually the first takes. So what you hear on the recordings is very close to how the band sounds in live performance. Audiences are always moved by the sincerity and commitent of emotion put out by George and group. George Petko and the Soulshifters are on a constant search for the deepest part of the heart. That journey is reflected heart and soul, in groove-laden songs they deliver. It's a musical journey definitely worth taking with them.
