"A lot of this style of music has been submitted but this is definitely in the upper tier for the genre we've heard...
Stood out for the simplicity and strength of their sound. "23" gave me the warm fuzzy feeling you'd get while sitting around a campfire with family and friends. I could picture listening to this on CBC radio and mellowing out on a Sunday afternoon. Classic Canadiana. "
