Edmonton, Canada-based rock & roll trio that may fly under the banner of rockabilly, but certainly seem to be doing everything they can to push beyond those boundaries. Though their feet are planted firmly in traditional rock & roll, the music of Confusionaires has more than enough in common with country music and blues to confuse the purists, but has no problem summoning the toe-tappers at the back of the room up to the dancefloor. However; when every genre descriptor falls short, be assured that Confusionaires are Rock & Roll! Since the inception of The Confusionaires in early 2017, the trio have focused heavily on their live performances throughout Western Canada, and their impact has been assisted by their independently released debut album “Make A Little Mess” (June 2018), and the release of their sophomore album “From The Headache To The Heartache” (February 2020) which has garnered high praise in Alberta.
Between Jenesa's sultry knockdown vocals, Alexander's mastery of strings and their talent for tasteful harmonies, Jenesia is a must see. A powerhouse of musical talent, they are skilled at evoking emotion, story-telling and connecting with their audiences. Masters of genre-blending, they offer a combination of jazz, blues, folk, and rock in their modern-meets-vintage pop musicality. Their sound is as unique as their influences are diverse, encompassing such artists as John Mayer, Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars and Imagine Dragons.

With youthful exuberance clearly behind them, Edmonton’s Old Wives rely on sharp hooks and good looks! The kind of sharp hooks you’d expect from a punk rock powerhouse.

So open your ears and drink your beers; these guys only get better the harder you go!
