DOUBLE DOUBLE BAND
Double Double is, at its heart, the sound of friendship. Neil Douglas Fraser and Landon Turlock first met in 2008 during junior high. At the time, Fraser played drums and Turlock played lead guitar, and the pair bonded over a mutual love of pop punk and classic rock. After a few failed attempts at starting bands together, the two settled into a fast friendship. It wasn’t until a few years after graduation that Double Double began to brew.
Fraser, having switched to vocals and acoustic guitar, started presenting Turlock with various song ideas after weekend brunches. When Turlock lent some arrangement ideas and countermelodies to Fraser’s energetic, soulful folk songs, the pair decided to adopt the name Double Double and craft the music that would eventually appear on their self-produced EP, Tag Along. The four track record was released in November 2017.
The album’s title track saw some local radio play, and helped the group establish themselves as a regular live act in Edmonton. Double Double placed second at the SAMU Music Showdown, and performed at the 2018 MacEwan Fall Festival alongside Bif Naked and the Reklaws
The pair have recently begun to perform with Christina Kruszewski and Jessamy Vegter, filling out their live and studio sound with three part harmony, gentle keys, ukulele, and driving rhythms. 2019 promises to be Double Double’s most productive year yet, with aspirations to produce and promote their first full-length record.
Not many high-school students can say they released three original singles, packed a venue for the release of their EP, co-written songs with JUNO nominated artist Nuela Charles, shared the stage with artists like Doc Walker and Shane Yellowbird, launched a successful after school music program and shared their voice with a variety of charity events and fundraisers, all while being an honors student finishing up her last year of high-school. Most recently, ABBY K. has been nominated as a Rising Star for the Edmonton Music Awards coming up in June 2019!
2018 was definitely a year to remember for singer/songwriter ABBY K.
Building on the spark that fired her passion for performing and combining her soulful vocals and guitar styling, ABBY K. writes with impactful vulnerability, reaching her audience on multiple levels.
Hailing from a small town outside of Edmonton, Alberta, 17-year-old ABBY K. released her debut single “Home” in May of 2018 and her spark grew into a flame for all to see. People were starting to take notice. Building on the success of her debut single, ABBY K. followed up with the release of “Better On My Own” which reached #8 on iTunes Top Selling Singer-Songwriter singles chart. “Better On My Own” also caught the attention of radio securing feature spins on radio stations in Alberta, BC and Ontario.
After a summer of performing at festivals such as Wild Oats and Notes Music Festival, the Firefly Acoustic Music Festival, Vegreville Fair Kick Off and Alberta Culture Days, ABBY K. released her third single “Hey”. Shifting focus in the fall, ABBY K. was back to her studies and writing and recording new music.
It’s now 2019 and ABBY K. is ready for what’s next. With a new song, produced by Towers, Brandon Unis (Karl Wolf) and Brad Simons (Nuela Charles), ready and raring to go, ABBY K. is anxious to take on ‘what’s next’ and continue to reach and entertain new audiences.
Kaeli is a 16 year old singer/songwriter. She started singing and performing at a very young age. As she got older, singing grew as her passion, and she fell in love with performing. In her original songs, she writes about real life experiences, and hard times with health complications. She feels so honoured that she gets to share her music with you!
So come out, enjoy, eat GREAT food and support these Artists.
