Tristan Legg

Tristan Legg - Guitar & Vocals

Tristan is a well known musician based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Highly regarded for his rich, powerful voice, strong acoustic guitar playing, and outgoing personality on stage, he is a captivating act to catch. Tristan grew up in the Musquodoboit Valley and was influenced deeply by the albums his parents had of British & American rock and folk artists. Steeped in the love of the blues and traditional music, Tristan has developed his own style of playing and writing songs that has a new but familiar feeling to them. Tristan has had the honour and privilege to perform and share the stage with many great artists over the past years including The Gig Dogs, McGinty, Evans & Doherty, Bruce Timmins, Fleur Mainville, and Dave MacIssac. Among various accolades he has received, Tristan was nominated for the Coast's "Best of Halifax" award in the Cover Artist/Band category.

Travis Hatcher

Travis Hatcher - Bass, Vocals, Harmonica

Travis has a long and storied history on stage in a variety of roles on an array of instruments. He has performed throughout the Maritimes in both solo and supporting roles, and after working on a number of acclaimed projects in Moncton, New Brunswick, his recent move back to HRM has opened new and exciting musical opportunities. He is the band's Swiss Army knife both musically and practically as he is the one to go to if someone needs a piece of tape or a cable and he owns and operates the bands's well equipped jam space. Travis' influences are eclectic, from hip-hop to heavy metal, and he respects and learns from all of what music has to offer as he plays and creates. His passion lies in being the bassist and is adept in many different styles.
