Ottawa-based MonkeyJunk bring an accessible and refreshing blend of swamp-rock roots and blues to the table. They have won a collective 20 Maple Blues Awards, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Blues Music Award (USA), and have been nominated twice for a JUNO Award, taking home the coveted hardware in 2012.
Armed with an arsenal of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a “decades-deep blues style” (Scott Brown, What’s up Yukon), while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.
