About Electric Religious
“Perfectly capturing the essence of the retro-lit dance floors, the Métis singer puts his own smooth edge on the genre, creating an eccentric sonic that has to be put on full blast.” – Wonderland Magazine
Electric Religious is the disco, pop-rock project of Treaty-6 based, Métis singer-songwriter, Brandon Baker, whose guitar-driven music has been described as “bursting with inspiration, insight, and hope.” Deeply influenced by the psychedelic sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Baker took his moniker from a Hendrix quote: “When I get up on stage, that’s my religion. I am electric religion.” His 2021 album was among CKUA Radio’s Top 100 albums of the year and comes on the heels of his nomination for Métis Artist of the Year at the 2021 Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Awards, a #1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown, and 2 CBC Searchlight Top 100 placements. Watch for new music in 2023 — the upcoming album features legendary drummer, Omar Hakim.
About Bebe Buckskin
Born and raised an “Indigenous Cowgirl” in the great muskeg of Northern Alberta, Bebe Buckskin; a Cree/Métis artist, is the embodiment of Northern grit and soul. Classic blues – rock, swamp – soul is the term that best describes the anchor of her music, with infusions that skim upon outlaw country, folk and R&B. This ex-rodeo queen swamp woman is unafraid to bare her raw intensity on stage, making for a riveting and authentic performance. Velvety robust vocals paired with a soulfully dynamic band, floats the listener away on a journey through soundscapes of nostalgic inspirations. Deep dense decadence for the senses.
