Carmanah has never been afraid to reach deep into the music archives for the gritty vintage flavours that influence its modern sound. The band consistently delivers a dynamic and well-balanced performance that features Laura Mina’s soulful lead vocals supported by strong male harmonies, multiple lead instruments and a driving rhythm section. Poignant songs explore love, nature and the issues of the world. It all adds up to what New York producer Gus Van Go has approvingly coined, ‘West Coast Soul’.

Carmanah is on the (Vancouver) Daily Hive list of musicians to watch for in 2017 and has shared the stage with many acts including Ziggy Marley, Spirit of the West, Shakey Graves, Clinton Fearon, Said the Whale and Current Swell. At home in Victoria British Columbia, the band consistently draws a large enthused crowd and has sold out venues such as Sugar Nightclub, with a capacity of 600. On their travels both near and far, and consistent with their values, the band mates lessen their ecological footprint by fuelling their tour vehicle with used vegetable oil procured from restaurants along the way.
