Prairials are a Musical Feast for the Senses

Seeking lonely single (or married) cat lady…wait this isn’t Craigslist is it? Right the band thing.

Hey everybody, this is our first blog post. We’ve only been a band for three months so cut us some slack! But hey, Prairials has done a lot of exciting things in that time. This whole project has been moving pretty fast for two brothers from small town Saskatchewan.

It all started this cold Canadian winter. We released our first track “Face In The Mirror” in December and had the chance to perform it live on 94.9 CHRW fm in London (Thanks Jennifer Lawrence!) We also did an on-air interview to help people get to know about the new project. The song really took off and we had quite a few interesting offers coming in, including an invite to a festival in the Netherlands, but more importantly a management deal with Rosner Management which we are excited to be a part of.

More recently (as in yesterday), we released our third video for “Busker’s Song” and I have to say, we’re pretty @#%$#$^ ecstatic about it. The song is about pursuing your passions and doing what ever it is that makes you happy. Because that’s what life’s all about isn’t it? (Well and them cat ladies…) We had the chance to work with some amazing people on this one! We worked with Mariah Fridgen of Black Eyed Susan, who sang on the track. If you haven’t heard of them, they’re a grunge band that’s definitely worth checking out. Our drum’s came all the way from Denmark, with the help of professional drummer Joel Stumbaugh. Also, this is the first time we’ve looked for professional actors for a video and boy are we glad we did! We had a great time shooting the video alongside Tracy St. Germain who has acted in many projects including the movie “5 Year Engagement” and the HBO series “Hung”. Walter Riggi, owner and founder of Riggi Media International stepped in as well, not only as an actor, but also as the mixer of our new song. A special thanks goes out to Darcy Gross of The Melville Advance for publishing the story of this song in the newspaper!

To promote Busker’s Song, we released it alongside Rosner Management’s Cyber Tour, an event that showcases different artist’s works. Viewers can vote for their favourite artist and the winner gets the chance to donate $500 to a charity of their choice. If won, we will be donating our money back into the source of our musical interests. Proceeds will be going to our hometown’s band program. The Melville Comprehensive School will be using the money towards purchasing necessary percussion instruments. We are hoping to give back in a way that will help others discover their love for music so that they can follow their dreams like we (and one of the characters in Busker’s Song) have done. If anyone wants to vote, they can head over to  and say that they are voting Prairials in the message section.

Nice talking to y’all. We’ll be sure to write to you more often, so stay posted! Check out our new song if you’d like and as for me… well it’s back to Craigslist.

Bye for Meow,
