“White Lightning is a band that’s doing everything right. They’re incredible performers, songwriters, and musicians. This is a band that’s on its way up.” Adam Thompson - Sonic 102.9 Program Director


White Lightning is the musical lovechild of KC and the Sunshine Band and The Black Keys. They deliver an explosive live performance showcasing their clear musical sensibility and style, inspired by multiple decades of artistic influences.

White Lightning has brought their interactive performance to over a hundred shows and festivals around Western Canada over the past few years and this upcoming year is going to be huge for them. They released an EP in March recorded by Canadian producer Howard Redekopp (Mother Mother, Tegan and Sara) and their lead single 1979 was in the top 10 songs on NewCanadianMusic.ca, the top 10 most active indies on DMDS and was in heavy rotation on CBC radio 3 with feature spins on commercial radio across Canada. White Lightning was Alberta's band of the week this summer on Rogers Radio, was Sonic 102.9fm's band of the month, and has been nominated for 6 Edmonton Music Awards including Performance of the Year.
