Londoner's Ready to 'Pop'!

Halifax is home to an incredible music scene. Each October, Halifax Pop Explosion welcomes hundreds of new and estalished artists to showcase and network on Canada’s East Coast. Recognized as one of Canada’s premier and most respected festivals, HPX has carved out an opportunity for London artists to perform in front of music industry professionals and fans alike.

Thursday October 19th, the London Music Office in Partnership with Halifax Pop Explosion will spotlight three (3) London acts chosen by Halifax Pop Explosion Director, James Boyle. Through networking at Canadian Music Week, the Nova Scotian influencer caught a number of London artists and selected Mountain of Wolves, Taylor Holden & The Law of Averages and Texas Kings to perform during HPX.

London artists to perform Thursday October 19th at The Carleton. 

Mountain of Wolves - 7:00pm

London, Ontario’s newest soul-inspired rock & roll band - endlessly excels at engaging audiences from small-town bars to packed concert halls. Their enormous on-stage personality is mirrored by a similarly large and exhilarating sound. Mountain of Wolves’ sound is reminiscent of living rock & roll legend Jack White, with a healthy dose of 1960s soul and finished with a classic instrumentation one might find listening to The Band or The Doors.  “You can only find your limits if you push yourself to the absolute max.” says vocalists/guitarist Richard Gracious. The energy may begin with the frontman, but it certainly doesn’t end there. 

      

Taylor Holden & The Law of Averages - 8:00pm

Taylor Holden and the Law of Averages are a rock n folk band from London, Ontario. Playing it fast & loose with the word folk, they give happy go lucky tunes a nice, sharp edge. Pairing up important stories (drinking milkshakes, eating chicken fingers & losing your keys) with infectious melodies, their tunes’ll stick to your brain like the gum on your shoes.

      

Texas King - 9:00pm

Texas King formed in 2013 and before long, began earning a reputation for their high-energy rock shows. After tours of Ontario and the east coast of Canada to support a debut EP, October 3rd 2017 sees the release of their anticipated full-length album Circles. Catch Texas King on tour in support of Circles all across Canada this fall.
