Born in the bleak isolation of the secluded prairie city of Edmonton, Canada, Homeshake's Peter Sagar worked with friends in a number of local bands before picking up and moving to Montreal in 2011 to begin recording under the Homeshake moniker. Following two self-released cassettes (The Homeshake Tapes and Dynamic Meditation) and two acclaimed full lengths (In The Shower and Midnight Snack), Sagar cracks a window open with his third album for Sinderlyn – Fresh Air.

Started immediately following the recording of Midnight Snack, Fresh Air continues Sagar’s exploration of dreamy, downtempo bedroom R&B and draws inspiration from such disparate artists like Sade, The Band, Broadcast, Prince, and Angelo Badalamenti. As the title Fresh Air suggests, Sagar’s songs were created to clear his listeners’ minds of negativity. Full of smokey, laid back love songs and airy productions, Sagar’s decidedly stoned sound is a breath of fresh air.
FootsXColes
FootsXColes
FootsXColes is a versatile production duo hailing from the Washington D.C., metropolitan area. The group is made up of Foots (drummer, songwriter, singer) and Coles (producer, singer, pianist). Their music is a refreshing take on alternative R&B – spacey soul music with futuristic sounds and vivid lyrics.

Not only has FootsXColes wowed audiences with their electrifying arrangements, but they have also lent their talents to other acts. They have played at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts alongside Alex Vaughn as a part of the “Celebrating Women in Jazz” series. Additionally, FootsXColes has opened for other artists including Toro Y Moi, HOMESHAKE, and Little Simz.

The duo’s latest album, A Happy Home, is a collection of jazzy tracks that leaves listeners feeling relaxed. The lead single from the album, entitled “Creep”, has quickly become a fan-favorite.
