Partner is funny, but not a joke. Gay but not for each other, as their Instagram tagline reads.
Partner is the "mature" effort of two best friends named Josée Caron and Lucy Niles from small town East Coast Canada. Borne of their bizarre and fortuitous friendship, Partner confidently harnesses the infinite power of Rock to explore a variety of niche yet strangely universal themes. Self described as post-classic-rock. Live they are a 5-piece and they shred.
Influenced by acts as varied as Melissa Etheridge, Ween, kd lang, and Prince, Partner delivers a refreshing and vital twist on a classic, prompting you to re-think what you thought was possible in Rock.
Their enthusiastic and action-packed live set has led them to be named the "best new band in Canada" in the Globe and Mail. Their debut album (In Search of Lost Time 2017) made NPR's All Songs Considered, Stereogum, Noisey, Exclaim, CBC Music, Playboy and many more best of 2017 lists.
Partner is genre-defying and terrifying: part musical act, part teenage diary, and 100% queer.
From folk rock to synth pop, Kat and the Hurricane can do just about everything. With their cutting lyrics and catchy hooks, Kat Farnsworth and Benjamin Coakley, along with drummer Ryan Thomas will make you sad in the best possible way. Their upcoming EP "Libra" is a departure from debut "Miles Away", containing songs written with new eyes on the world but with the same heart.
