Pheromone Recordings takes over The Horseshoe Tavern during NXNE on Saturday June 21

NXNE and Toronto label Pheromone Recordings today announced that five of the label’s artists would come together for a night of disparate musics on the Saturday of NXNE, June 21.

Pheromone founder Kim Cooke has this to say: “I blame Dave Bidini. He’s been on my case to do this for years and this year, Dave, Yvonne Matsell and I made it happen, with the kind co-operation of Jeff Cohen and Craig Laskey at the ‘Shoe.”

The lineup on June 21:

7:30 Steph Cameron
Pheromone’s newest signing whose Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady debut will surface later this year. Think Bleecker & McDougall ’62, finger picking acoustic folk blues married to a marvellous voice and great songs. Unknown, but not for long.

8:30 Mo Kenney
The Halifax-area siren has a shelf full of awards for her self-titled debut album including SOCAN Song of the Year for “Sucker.” Mo has just finished her sophomore recording scheduled for fall release. New songs are surely on tap.

9:30 The Wilderness of Manitoba
The not-from-Manitoba Toronto-based quartet has had a great run with their CBC Radio 2 supported Island of Echoes breakthrough disc which garnered them a 2014 Roots and Traditional Juno nomination.

10:30 Bidiniband
Ex-Rheostatic Dave Bidini and his ridiculously great band – Don Kerr, drums, Paul Linklater, guitar and Doug Friesen, bass, release their third and best album, The Motherland on May 27.

11:30 Joel Plaskett Emergency
A brand new signing to the Pheromone roster we’re overjoyed to have Joel play a full electric set with the Emergency to close the night. Arguably Canada’s greatest contemporary songwriter, Joel blesses us with a very rare club show that is not to be missed.
