Scenic Route to Alaska
A night of great music June 16
Jeff Bonner, Tractorgrease Cafe
Scenic Route to Alaska are at Tractorgrease Cafe on Thursday.
ith new direction and inspiration, Scenic Route to Alaska quickly developed their indie-folk rock sound as the trio shaped Mann’s new material into a unified concept.
The band worked toward writing and recording their first EP in the Fall of 2010. Mann and Connor traveled to Montreal to meet with Wood who was attending McGill University for jazz double bass performance. They booked three overnight recording sessions with masters students at McGill, which resulted in three of the six songs off their first EP.
The remaining three songs were recorded at Norwood Studios with James Murdoch and Chris Wynters (Captain Tractor) back in Edmonton when Wood came home for the summer.
In 2011, the band toured throughout Alberta and British Columbia and released their debut self-titled EP before playing the Canmore and Edmonton Folk Music Festivals. www.scenicroutetoalaska.com Preview: www.youtu.be/OJVEYh5RhyM
