Racoon Bandit
Racoon Bandit - Catch Release
Region: PEI
Genre: Folk, Indie, Rock

Comprised of Fraser McCallum, Roger Carter, and Adam Gallant, Racoon Bandit show a knack for warm folk-rock arrangements that hide an anthemic bite. Equal parts roots, pysch-rock, and indie, the Bandits turned heads across the country this fall with their fourth independent release Close Your Eyes. They followed this with an 11-date album release tour presented by Upstreet Craft Brewery and supported by Dylan Menzie’s Ghost.

The lads’ 12-song recording is co-produced with Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions; producer for Coyote, the Lions, North Lakes, and Wildcat) and features song-writing and lead vocals from all four members and contributions from guest artists Kinley Dowling, Allison Kelly, Jill McRae, Buchanan, and more. Second single ‘On the Hook’ hit #1 on the East Coast Countdown after climbing for 5 weeks, and the full-length album is currently charting across Canada. RB's cover of 'Passing Through' (Dick Blakeslee) can currently be heard as the opening and closing credits theme to the acclaimed web series Just Passing Through.
