The best kept secret in music

Press


"Alberta Rocks at The Calgary Stampede"

Hailing from Edmonton, Sugakane was the next act to sing in the rain. Completely misrepresented in their recordings, Sugakane's live set was a surprising delight. With just five people on stage, they managed to create a sound much bigger than seemed possible. Pulling elements of Pink Floyd (and therefore Muse and their Canadian counterparts Welkin) into their music, Sugakane drew the crowd into a world of ethereal beauty.

Lead singer Andrew Misle possesses one of those voices that keep the listener completely engaged. Even though Misle's vocals are enough to carry himself, it seems he's taken in one too many Jagger performances than is good for the health.

Pulling both keyboard and bass duties, Tyler Wollmann was the main player in Sugakane's encompassing sound. Throughout the entire set the keyboard constantly droned on, its lulling tone emitting from the speakers in pulsing waves. The combination of lush arrangements and warbling vocals resulted in the perfect music for a rainy day, as it were. They closed with U2's 'Where The Streets Have No Name', and actually pulled it off quite nicely.

"Amazing Response"

"I can't remember the last time we had this kind of reaction to anything that isn't a major label release".

after the release of "Fall".

"The Plague, The Cure"

"When the Prairie city screamed, it screamed loud like all agony of sins forgone. The city was in throes of a cystic, ulcerous plague called 'Cover Bandits'. No - One knew a cure. No - One had an answer. Until…Until SugaKane. Then there was a cure and the world was set all right. And the fatted calf was slaughtered in thanks for the righteousness of real, original, unadulterated rock. And the Prairie city rejoiced with applause of a million. Heaven on earth is real. Check it".

Bio

Sugakane was formed in 2001 by 2 brothers and 2 University students. Completed when the bass player was added six months later, they have been dedicated to music for the last three years. Playing nearly every weekend and touring to all parts of Western Canada, they have established a respectable name for themselves, performing with large acts such as 54-40, Danko Jones, The Tea Party and Wide Mouth Mason. They recorded their first album after 6 months of being together and in Feb. 2004, went down to Vancouver to record a new EP at Mushroom Studio's. Having just recorded their first music video, Sugakane continues to gain recognition as an independent band that grows stronger everyday.
