I was introduced to The Kents in early 2017 at hometown function celebrating arts, music and culture in small-town Ontario. There to represent what the region could offer, they performed a three-song medley that stamped their act indelibly in my music-blogger agenda. Originating from a high school music class project, Freddy, Warren and Luke dove into the music world after college. They solidified their sound with the addition of Peterborough drummer Tanner Pare and released a debut EP Waking in 2016. I met them shortly thereafter; I was smitten, an instant fan of their thoughtful, genuine anthems.
I was thrilled to learn they'd perform at this summers' Sound of Music Festival in Burlington ON Canada. On a last-minute whim, and after a heavy week of travel, work and photography in Los Angeles, I caught a flight to Toronto for the weekend. DRiFFt needed a taste of The Kents. The boys had graciously granted permission for me to join them at SOM. Woefully under-prepared (as every blog-worthy trip is), I hit LAX at 3am with camera bag and suitcases in tow.
