The Silkstones are an alternative band hailing out of Lethbridge Alberta Canada. The Silkstones became fully-formed in the spring of 2015, and make good use of the full-band instrumentation. With a fantastic intertwining of rhythm guitar, blazing electric leads, and groovy drumming, their music takes the listener on a journey with honest songwriting and energetic live performances.
They make the music that they want to hear, and have no problems sounding unique while doing it.
“I've seen a lot of good, young, local bands over the years. But I couldn't tell you the last time one of them grabbed my full attention like The Silkstones did. Seeing them live for the first time, my colleagues and I, all radio veterans, were stopped in our tracks. All of us. A band that had only been together for months at that time had a fully captivated audience. Let's be clear, the vast majority of those in the crowd that summer evening were there for some cold beers and some live tunes. We didn't know we were about to witness something special. Not until the first few notes. Our jaws dropped. Literally. I still remember the look on the faces around me. It was hard to distinguish between original tune and cover, but, it didn't matter. We were all there in that moment. If you're looking for something new, something special, I'd suggest finding The Silkstones at a gig near you. Soon. These guys are going places.”
