Autopilot is a band from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Autopilot's original sound features an alternative undercurrent punctuated by captivating pop hooks. Unafraid to experiment with sound, they craft solid songs complemented by effects and out of the ordinary touches like a bow used on a guitar.

ReMain SoliD
ReMainSoliD. (RMS), a key word and also the name of the band, passes on an energy issued from the last 40 years of rock music. Imagine blues-rock, pop ballads and progressive indie with moving levels of voices, flashy solos, amusing sounds, soaring tunes... In summary, an energizing show! Yes, it's Rock 'N roll but still original.

"Music for hooligans played by gentlemen."
Moosy plays french rock, with guts. A power trio of four people. Three brother-in-arms seeking redemption, helped by nothing but their music and their attitude. It is loud, heavy and unleashed.
The moose raw energy is filled with memories from both Grunge's most tortured times, to the darkest Blues of a drunk Irishman. As if post-rock finally got its overdrive back. As the elders used to say : never mess with a moose.
Mixing unusual writings with extreme on-stage performances, the beast destabilizes the audience: through the excessive use of overlapping sequences, listeners are swallowed in a surrealistic madness-in-motion, from on-edge irony to the most absurd Exquisite Corpse.
As a natural progress, the moose went from performing on stage to recording process twice, in order to engrave two massive albums written in the language of Molière. A proof that headbangers can also be metaphors' enthusiasts.
For the fans of Noir Désir, Led Zeppelin, Tool and roller-coasters.
Mikki Michelle
A Drama Queen, a lover, a fighter. A new breed of theater folk.
Mikki Michelle is an Australian singer/songwriter, who occasionally strums the ukulele. Influenced by bright colours and nature, she is rarely seen leaving the house without some crazy-coloured flower combo or hat on her head. She loves cabaret but also folk music, so she decided to combine the best of both worlds and define her music as theatre-folk. Think of her as Lily Allen meets Tori Amos as a pinup pixie. She has some very talented musicians who she keeps on rotation (a violinist one gig, a flutist another etc), and refers to as her 'November Ribbons', for a big jazzy sound or can be stripped back, raw and acoustic as a more organic flair. She can be flamboyant and wild, folksy and whimsical, melodic and earthy...but always sassy.
Tindervox is about creating moods, living in the moment and surrendering to complete chaos, being aware of it and creating soundscapes from it. Moving forward, Tindervox wants to keep creating original music, pushing the boundaries of our writing, staying open to new ideas, and performing our music in new places for new faces.
