Jocelyn & Chris Arndt

October 14, 2016
Jocelyn and Chris Arndt

She’s been compared to Janis Joplin, Fiona Apple and Amy Winehouse. He’s been mentioned in the same sentence as Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Together, siblings Jocelyn and Chris Arndt form a powerful musical duo whose new album, Edges, is a dazzling collection of dynamic blues-rock songs that debuted at #17 on Jambands.com’s Top 30 (and currently sits at #14 after five consecutive months on the chart) and has cracked the FMQB Top 200 Albums and Singles List, bolstered by airplay across the United States. Featuring guest appearances by G. Love and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, the critically-acclaimed album is a raw, soulful throwback to the rock of the ’60s and ’70s.

Jocelyn and Chris have been featured in Paste Magazine, Relix, The 405 and Baeble Music, and the pair has performed across the country at venues and locales including the Sundance Film Festival, Mountain Jam Music Festival, SXSW, The Viper Room and Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, and Milwaukee Summerfest, where they were voted “Best Band” on the emerging artist stage.

Royal Canoe

November 24, 2014

The winter climate of Winnipeg can be cold, crushing and claustrophobic. But its harshness is balanced out by the region’s warm, euphoric summers and their seemingly-endless blue skies. These cyclical extremes, and the effects that they can have on one’s psyche — both positive and negative — are reflected in the music of Royal Canoe, a six-piece band that calls the city home. Featuring Matt Peters (vocals, keyboards, acoustic guitar), Bucky Driedger (electric guitar, vocals), Matt Schellenberg (keyboards, vocals), Brendan Berg (bass, keyboard, vocals), Derek Allard (drum kit) and Michael Jordan (electronic drums), Royal Canoe’s sound is a unique fusion of indie rock, jazz, pop and hip-hop that is, at times, difficult to define, but is nonetheless remarkably cohesive and crackling with an infectious energy.
