The Dudes, a Calgary-based band, infuse an emotional blend of Al Green and Flaming Lips – soul music and early 1990′s distortion. Dan Vacon, singer-songwriter for The Dudes since their start in the late 90′s, has the ability to draw audiences in through his distinct vocal style – a mixture of strong pop melody, sly double entendres, and pure soul.
The Dudes have produced several
lo-fi releases since their inception, however their last musical offering,
“Brain Heart Guitar”, propelled them from the Calgary independent music scene
(where they were voted Calgary’s ‘Favourite Band of 2006, 2007 and 2008′ by
FFWD Readers) into a more national spotlight, and spread their understanding of
true rock and roll soul. The Dudes toured across Canada numerous times
since the release of ‘Brain Heart Guitar’, with the likes of Pride Tiger, Two
Hours Traffic, Hot Hot Heat and Finger 11. As well as showcasing at festivals
like Halifax Pop Explosion, Pop Montreal, NXNE, Canadian Music Week, The Canadian
Junos, and the West Coast Music Awards.
Recently signing to UK label One
Four Seven Records for a 2008 UK/Europe release of ‘Brain Heart Guitar’, the
band recently finished 2 promotional tours of those regions in 2008, and is now
receiving an influx of positive reviews for the album by European blogs and
magazines. Brain Heart Guitar was released
in 2007. The band’s second album, Blood Guts Bruises Cuts was released in 2009.
