Alt-Folk-Rock band from Regina. We've taken small town sensibilities, infused them with loss and pain, shaken the mixture over tears both joyous and desperate, boiled it furiously in an extract of love and lust, and then bottled it all. The result is a passionate, delicious blend of rockin, groovin, story-tellin', and musicking that bites like a prairie rattler, goes down like a fine wine and tosses your inhibitions to the wind.

    Various Artists

    September 2017

    The sophomore album from these alt-folk-rockers features ten powerful, genre-bending tracks that deal with loss, grief, and leaving something behind when you pass on. Despite the heavy subject matter, the songs and stories take you on a journey that is uplifting and full of hope. “Dead and Breathing” has captured the urgency found in the band’s live performances. Hard working and ever-evolving, the Salesmen produce crisp, quality, alt-folk with heartfelt lyrics and laid back melodies. The album bridges the gap between kitchen parties, fireside tales, and the world of rock & roll. Produced by: The Snake Oil Salesmen and Justin Bender.

    Recorded at: Blue Door Studios, Regina. Released: September 23, 2017
