Comprised of Fraser McCallum, Roger Carter, and brothers Scott and Adam Gallant, Racoon Bandit show a knack for warm folk-rock arrangements that hide an anthemic bite. Equal parts roots, pysch-rock, and indie, the Bandits turned heads across the country with 2011’s Into the Hills, and have two other independent releases to their name.

The four lads are set to release their latest record on August 21, Close Your Eyes. Co-produced with Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions; producer for Coyote, the Lions, North Lakes, and Wildcat) this 12-song production features song-writing and lead vocals from all four members and contributions from guest artists Kinley Dowling, Allison Kelly, Jill McRae, Buchanan, and more.

This year, Racoon Bandit has played the Cavendish Beach Music Fest, the ECMA’s, the PEI 2014 Celebration Zone, and Dead of Winter Festival, and arranged and recorded the title theme song for the award-winning Canadian web series Just Passin Through (which is included as the new record’s closing number.)

Winners of 3 Music PEI Awards and two-time ECMA nominees, the quartet has shared the stage with many fine entertainers, including The Sadies, April Wine, Al Tuck, Said the Whale, Two Hours Traffic, Hannah Georgas, and Erin Costelo.

Nathan Wiley: 

Hailing from Summerside, PE, three time ECMA award and five time Music PEI award winning artist Nathan Wiley first earned acclaim for his 2002 debut “Bottom Dollar”. He made good on the promise of that release with follow up, “High Low” two years later. His blend of classic sounds with a modern, slightly world weary perspective struck a chord with listeners, as songs full of subtle melodies and lyrics addressing those unquenchable yearnings inside all of us wormed their way into their ears. Next came “The City Destroyed Me”, (produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin) where Wiley’s two-sided persona of small-town-boy-meets-big-city-desire-and-despair grows a few more sizes.

Nathan has shared the stage with artists like Blue Rodeo, Sarah Harmer, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Matt Mays, Ron Sexsmith and many more. His song “Bottom Dollar Baby” has appeared the last two years in a row in the Charlottetown Festival production, “Come-All-Ye”.

Nathan splits his time these days between recording new material and producing other Maritime acts including an ECMA winning record for Gordie MacKeeman & his Rhythm Boys and Drea MacDonald. In July, Nathan released a six song EP titled Bandits, his first collection of original recorded material in 7 years.
