Where: Toronto, ON
Music venues and festivals across Canada had best start expanding their stages now as the nine members of The Steady Rebels are headed their way in 2017. With their 2014 EP, Motion, and their recently released full-length debut, Common Ground, the Mississauga, ON-based group has quickly garnered a reputation for its supreme musicianship and infectious reggae-inspired songs.
The formation of the group stemmed from an extended hospitalization endured by frontman Sean Feltoe, who used music to assist in his recovery process. Somewhat expectedly, themes of sickness and health dominate the material on Common Ground, yet even in the record’s seemingly bleakest lyrical moments, there is a beacon of light that shines through.
