El Niven and The Alibi

Edmonton rock group El Niven and The Alibi bring their poetically-bittersweet and rank rock ‘n’ roll to the legendary King Eddy stage for a free show on Friday, March 3.

About El Niven and The Alibi

Unapologetically original, uncompromising in their vision, Edmonton-based El Niven and The Alibi (ENATA) create music which is equal parts poetically-bittersweet and rank rock and roll. With a natural bent for lyrics, ENATA’s sound, infused with life-experience and grunge rock attitude, is undeniably theirs.

ENATA was conceived in a musical therapy program at a juvenile detention centre when guitarist and lead singer, Elliot Niven, met drummer, Jeff Burwash, in their youth. With an obsession for groove-laden rock and roll, ENATA’s combined devil may care attitudes – together with a love of being on the road – has landed the band on a musical stride. Over the last few years, this has resulted in a collection of “dangerous music.” They are true blue rock and rollers, blazing a path with their own brand of Western Rock.

Rich with influences in grunge rock, classic rock and electric blues music, ENATA’s newest single Cigarettes embodies an unfiltered, no filler attitude delivered with cool-handed intention. Bold and rich with both love and angst, ENATA latest single will leave you satisfied and craving more.

SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Listening to Cigarettes causes a tendency to play loud music, fall in love, and may complicate relationships.
