The Dromedaries
The Dromedaries are Owen Keenan (Bass & Vocals) and Ron Duffy (Drums) with Neil Traynor (Guitar). They have been playing together for about year now and having completed their first record are in the process of simply enjoying playing Live.
Their general sound recalls bands such as The Kinks and ‘60s icons Love but The Dromedaries merely touch on these influences (and others) rather than ardently pursuing the details and rules of paint-by- numbers “Psych” or “Garage”.
All three members of The Dromedaries have a rich history in Toronto’s indie music scene. Keenan was in Circle of Ill Health in the late ‘80s while Duffy played in Change of Heart and The Lost Dakotas. Traynor (nephew of Canadian Music Legend Pete Traynor) played in The Toppermost as well as fronting his own critically acclaimed solo venture.

Timothy Cameron: ...Every Cloud Has A Sulphur Lining...

Timothy Cameron was given a copy of the Beatles album "Twist And Shout" when he was four years old, and decided that being a Beatle would be a good job to have when he grew up.

Unfortunately, they weren't hiring.

Instead, he waited a few years, then began playing in bars and pubs at the age of 17, by which time he was tall enough to convincingly "exaggerate" about his age. Somewhere in there he found time to add some Clash, Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg and Green Day albums to his collection, and proceeded to absorb them into his musical DNA. Since then, Timothy has played literally thousands of gigs, and within the past few years released three independent CDs, all of which received positive reviews and airplay in Canada and abroad.

In 2007, Timothy discovered that one of his songs, American Dream, had become part of the curriculum in a high school class in Germany which was studying the recent impact of American culture on the outside world.

Shortly thereafter, he changed his stage moniker to T.C. Folkpunk, a decision which was brought on by the proliferation of other musicians performing under the names Tim Cameron or Timothy Cameron (and his annoyance at getting their email).

In 2010, T.C. was invited to take part in The International Pop Overthrow festival in Liverpool, England, which he happily accepted. His shows included two appearances on stage at the legendary Cavern Club. He still hasn't gotten over it.

In November 2010 T.C.'s first album under his adopted stage name was released, cleverly titled "T.C. Folkpunk". Once again, the album received positive reviews from various corners of the planet.

His next collection of tunes, entitled "Lo-Fi Hi-Jinx" was released in September 2013.
