Montréal, Quebec, CAN

A young Montreal alternative band. At only 18 years of age, they show impressive musical maturity by complementing gorgeous acoustic guitar melodies with delicate vocals, keys, electric guitar and bass, brass instruments and drums for a contemporary orchestral feel that is immense and introspective at the same time.


The band Kodiak can be best described as having a "WorldUrban" sound, inspired by Roots, Rock and Hip-Hop. Their lyrics speak of the complexity, reality and the often-paradoxical nature of humanity. Based in Montreal, their sound is described as an eclectic blend of festive R&B to a more subdued folk-rock.

The heart of the band is Franois Grgoire (Vocals & lyrics) Jonathan Gauthier (bass) et Flix Couturier (guitar). Their latest release La Mcanique was produced by Laurent Jais (Amadou & Mariam, Manu Chao, Mano Negra, Babylon Circus).
