With strong lyrical imagery, well placed harmonies and a diverse array of sounds and textures, Arcadian Suns are making noise in the Canadian music scene. Their eclectic and diverse musical backgrounds form a unique blend of indie, folk, rock, reggae.

Originating from the bitter cold of northwestern Ontario, the two founding members and childhood best friends have rejoined forces in the western foothills to create Arcadian Suns. Both have careers in the recording industry. All three members play multiple instruments incorporating acoustic and electric guitars, moog synthesizers, dobro, bass, keys, vibraphone, drums and percussion.

“Stockstill and Rose” are a unique, high energy duo made up of Mike Stockstill on the five string banjo, and Amelia Rose Slobogean on fiddle and vocals. They play a variety of traditional and original tunes ranging from bluegrass and western swing, to gypsy jazz and Eastern European tunes. Between them, they have decades of playing, performing and writing tunes under their belts.
In their shows, you can expect to hear everything from backyard chicken scratch pickin’, to dramatic gypsy instrumentals, and many things in between. They both write their own originals, and, while often staying true to the traditional sounds associated with their instruments, they really enjoy pushing boundaries, straying outside of the box and throwing different genres together…all with fiddle, banjo and voice.

Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths

“Through his work with Tasman Jude and now as frontman of the Royal Youths, Caleb Hart has established himself as one of Canada’s premier reggae voices, roots-reggae smooth to dancehall grimy in the blink of an eye and always armed with a message of peace, love and hope.” – Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival

“The sound mastered by these guys is a team effort, plainly displayed in their immaculate performances. It’s the combination of heart shared by each member of the band, and a flawless synchronicity of talent, skill, and simply soul.” – Jessy Savage http://www.jessysavage.com/features/caleb-hart-and-the-royal-youths-road-to-riff

“When you can switch between singing reggae to soulful R&B to sounding just like Shaggy seemlessly, you’re going to blow some minds. Just watch his cover of Shaggy and Rayvon’s ‘Angel’. It’s no wonder his set with the Royal Youth’s at Sugar Nightclub won them a performance spot at Rifflandia. Hart also capped off his year winning a Western Canadian Music Award with his other band Tasman Jude. 2017 is already starting off hot as his voice is heavily featured in Illvis Freshly’s song ‘Upside Down’ playing in rotation on The Zone for January 2017’s Band of The Month. Caleb Hart went from someone I didn’t know anything about to being a name that has been practically seen everywhere within four months. This performance for Do250’s ‘Road To Riff Contest Showcase’ is a shining example of Hart’s vocal chops and stage presence.” – Magmazing Music
