My name is Candice Knihnitski. I produce The Kim Mitchell Show on Q107, host The Candice Rock Blog on Q107.com and guest host on The Edge. I have worked in four provinces during my twelve year career and you can read all about my radio adventures including my stripper DJ days on candicekradio.com.
I have always been passionate about indie music and that is what led me to start The Candice Rock Blog. Working at a classic rock station I wanted to blend the two and the Classic Rock Indie Invasion Sessions were born. On this blog, you will be introduced to some of the best unknown talent this country has to offer. So let’s get started.
First off is the Vancouver based band Sidney York. This is not your typical band with guitar, bass, drums and vocals. Sidney York boasts an oboe, bassoon and french horn too.
This is an acoustic version of their new single Cold In Here.
Also check out the video for Dick & Jane. You might recognize the whistling stylings of Ryan from Mother Mother in this track.
Next up is Jane’s Party out of Toronto. During the Classic Rock Indie Invasion Sessions I get bands to cover their favorite classic rock tune. Here is Jane’s Party covering Mother by Pink Floyd.
Check out their live performance on Balcony TV.
If you know a band that might be interested in participating please email me email@example.com. Thanks again to Airchecker for inviting me to guest blog. Check back next week for two more awesome bands you have probably never heard of but will want to hear again. Thanks-CK.
