Brainhunter is a 4-peice indie band from Ottawa. Their sound melds together the fury of punk, the introspective soul of country, the precision of METAL with the sonic madness of the 90s. It may seem confusing but the end product is a straight up, cigarette in the gas tank, ROCK n' ROLL explosion.

Thunder Pussy
At the crossroads between a bowl of Tender Vittles and a super cell storm comes Thunder Pussy- a mix of of electrifying music to while away those catnip infused nights.

Musical tribute to the legendary Merle Travis
Ryan Cook and Dylan Watts perform a musical tribute to the legendary Merle Travis.
Merle Travis (1917-1983) was an American singer/songwriter from Western Kentucky who is credited with inventing a melodic, rhythmic and percussive guitar technique known as "Travis-Picking". The same thumb style picking made popular by Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, and Tommy Emmanuel is derived from this "travis picking" technique. We will focus on Travis's coal-mining ballads, instrumentals, and the popular songs he wrote for country artists in the 1950's and 1960's.
