Previously performing at Blenders with The Jerry Cans, we are pleased to welcome back The Trade Offs! Arctic Soul, The Trade-Offs’s iconic sound, is distinguished by the soulful bass and backing vocals of Jeffrey Maurice, Michael Eckert’s pedal steel expertise, Galen Pelley’s creative drumming, and Joshua Qaumariaq’s deep brooding voice which was described in Exclaim! magazine as  “big, bellowing, and bluesy, like Nick Cave with a little more rasp and Randy Newman with a little more edge”. On their sophomore album, Let Go Give In Fall Down, the band have refined their unique sound with a blend of deeply personal Inuktitut and English lyrics singing the Arctic blues about universal themes of darkness and light, closeness and isolation. The lead track on the album, Crowberry Hill, ends with the line “Now you know, baby where I come from”.
