Raising Acadia is a 3-piece Alternative Rock Band from Saskatoon, SK. Comprised of multi-instrumentalists Connor Brousseau, Keegan Barker and Mackenzie Putters, the group was formed in 2011, and took the name Raising Acadia in 2013. Raising Acadia has a rich and textured sound with a wide array of influences, such as the funky yet melodic sound of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the overdriven, blues-inspired garage rock of Jack White and the Black Keys, and the 70's inspired arena rock of Led Zeppelin and Boston. Ultimately, the textured and diverse sound is delivered in a stage show that is a prime demonstration of musical ability, raw emotion and spiritual catharsis. Lyrically, the band places a strong emphasis on the light and dark sides of love, the tumultuousness, confusion and anxiety of adolescence and adulthood, and unyielding hopefulness and faith for humanity. Currently, the band has had no official releases, yet they are entering the studio in July 2018 to begin recording their first EP, set for release in Spring 2019.
