Whisky Legs
Wednesday April 9th 2015 at 20h

Viree Blues Boreale features
THE Revelation of the Canadian Blues scene
on this 21st edition

The warm and powerful voice of their lead singer, their heavy pounding Blues with Soul-tainted groove sure makes them THE Blues Discovery of this year! And that’s exactly what they are, being nominated as "Revelation Band of the Year" and "Female Blues Artist of the Year" at 2015 Lys Blues Awards. Whisky Legs is a clever mix of nostalgia with contemporaneity.

Based in the heart of Quebec City’s famous St-Roch neighbourhood, Whisky Legs is immersed in a passionate surrounding, casted in an alloy of power and sensitivity. With a definitely «sixties» aura adorned with a modern touch, the band amalgamates the groove and deepness of the Soul with the thrill and ease of the Blues Rock. Their music displays a spirit of rebellion while rallying and steeped in a touch of mystery. Born in la Belle Province, their inspiration stems from here and elsewhere as well. We can’t though leave aside the influences of Amy Winehouse, Led Zeppelin, Ray Charles, The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr. nor of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Less than two years after their 2013 debut, Whisky Legs is on a roll. They’ve already played more than 100 shows such as Tremblant Blues Festival and the now closed Cabaret du Capitole. They also earned the "tournée coup de coeur" award by the ROSEQ and also, up to now, two nominations to the 2015 Lys Blues 2015 which gala will take place next May. Their first EP, “Have A Shot”, which sold more than 1000 copies in just a few months leads to expect a great new album now in the making and expected out later this year. At the helm of the band, Maude Brochu (Lead Vocalist) forms the heart of the project in synchronicity with triple threat Pascal Denis (drums, guitar and vocals) with whom she's been collaborating for six years. The band is rounded out by old friend and guitar slinger extraordinaire Guillaume Methot (guitars and vocals) and now with the hot new comer Louis Fernandez joining (bass, guitar and vocals).

We invite you to hear and see for yourselves the reasons for this new genre Blues Band’s dazzling success at Viree Blues Boreale and hear first-hand the tunes that will be on their very first album.
