Singer-songwriter and guitarist Kim Mitchell has achieved gold and multi-platinum sales status over a long and storied career, starting early on as the leader of the musically eclectic Max Webster, a band who in the late ’70s defined “alternative” and “independent” long before the words became clichés. Mitchell has sold over 1.5 million recordings and has toured regularly over a lengthy solo career that remains creatively vibrant to this day 2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Akimbo Alogo (Alert Records), Kim’s first full length solo recording post-Max Webster, a record which introduced us to Kim’s big, bold and endemic guitar driven sounds in songs like Go For Soda and the anthemic All We Are.
TOM COCHRANE with RED RIDER
After iconic musician Tom Cochrane’s early beginnings as a folkbased singer-songwriter playing the coffeehouses of Toronto’s famed Yorkville scene in the early ’70s, Tom became the driving force with the adventurous rockers Red Rider prior to achieving massive international success (over 3 million units world wide and rare diamond-sales status at home) with the breakthrough 1991 album Mad Mad World and its unforgettable hit Life Is A Highway, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year!
Together, Toronto recorded four albums over four years. Looking For Trouble, Head On, Get It On Credit and Girls Night Out all were certified gold or better. Besides tearing up the charts, they were major headliners with The Headpins, Chilliwack, and others.
