Be sure to check out the Suitcase Sam Soundcloud account for songs you won't find anywhere else. This month's song is Can I Get a Bone - an unreleased Suitcase Sam song from The Sweetest Hippopotamus short film.
We spent the first warm, sunny weekend of the year hunkered down in the studio demoing tracks for our next album. We got some great sounds out of that tiny room and the songs are really starting to take shape.
We're getting geared up for this year's upcoming NXNE festival in Toronto. Come and listen to us do our thing like a sex machine on Thursday, June 13th at the Silver Dollar opening for Mikal Cronin. For more details send a self addressed envelope to this address.
At the end of January the band went down to the Hard Rock Toronto to film a live performance for The Toronto Sessions on Rogers TV. Have a look at Frankie and Me and if you like what you see head over to the Suitcase Sam YouTube channel or our inhouse video page to watch the rest.
On Thursday, January 31st, Suitcase Sam and the Suits taped three songs at Toronto's HardRock Cafe as part of The Toronto Sessions. The performance will be airing in the near future on a date still to be determined.
Brent Randall and Mike Roy have been playing in the Suits for some time, but now felt like the right time to put a ring on it. If you haven't already had the chance come and check out the Suits, now performing in stereoscopic sound.
The soundtrack for the Sweetest Hippopotamus (featuring Can I Get a Bone, the Hippo Rag and the Sweetest Hippopotamus) picked up a best soundtrack award in the short film category at the 2012 ACTION ON FILM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. Special thanks to Robin Hatch and Charlie Krenshaw for their involvement in the creation of this music.
After much deliberating and hub-bub I am very happy to announce the completion of my new album: Waiting For A Train. The release date is still to be determined. However, I'd like to take this moment to cordially invite anyone and everyone to have a listen here in the interim. Just click on the music player to your right to have a listen. All the tracks are there. Special thanks to Charlie Krenshaw, Stephen Traub, Brent Randall, Les Hoffman, Shelley Coopersmith, Anna Sudac and Jose Cornelius.
