ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There’s a buzz of anticipation surging through the 2000 plus crowd at Flames Central in downtown Calgary. The stage lights go up and WaxPoets rip into Can’t Slow Down – a fitting metaphor for the band’s trajectory toward success. The song is a spring-loaded rocker depicting a frantic search for meaning and it kicks off a night of hook laden power pop that electrifies audience and band members alike!

"twisted means to scattered ends I burn the candle at both ends but hear me wax poetic friends I think I mean it, I think I really mean it"

They definitely mean it!

The four members of WaxPoets are powerful musical forces in their own right. Combined, the talents of Paul Bennett, Randy Hutchings, Cameron Purvis and Conrad Walz are impossible to ignore. Originally hailing from four different parts of the country, the band members have joined forces in the common cause of making great music. This is a group of songwriters first and foremost, so the bar is set high and mediocre songs don’t make the cut. Enthusiastic audiences across Western Canada have embraced the band and would loudly agree that WaxPoets are ready for the big time! Infectious melodies soar above gritty guitars. Lush harmonies decorate psychedelic soundscapes. This is rock and roll WaxPoets-style and is the sound that is earning the band accolades from fans and critics alike. Having chosen Can’t Slow Down as Track of the Day on CBC Radio 3, Craig Norris described the band as “hooky, with a beatlesque vibe … but there is something very contemporary and unique about their sound too.” Sharing stages with - and making fans of - bands like the Old 97s, Violent Femmes and Spirit of the West, the WaxPoets continue to spread the word and audiences are lining up to hear it!
