MICHAEL RAULT with THE CANYON ROSE OUTFIT & THE AUTUMN PORTRAIT

Thu, 08/11/2011


This show will be a homecoming for Rault, and will showcase his new band with material from MA-ME-O, Rault’s sensational debut for the Pirates Blend record label, which is founded and operated by Canadian reggae rock legends Bedouin Soundclash and distributed by Sony Music Canada.

Born in Edmonton, Rault comes from a highly musical Edmonton family who introduced him early to the genius of foundational rock’n’roll artists like Little Walter, Lee Dorsey and Bo Diddley.

Having cut his teeth in Edmonton punk groups, for MA-ME-O Rault returns to the music of his youth with a rock sound filled with the R&B and pop of a bygone era, infused with the lo‐fi aesthetics of a current crop of artists like the Black Keys and Beck.

Rault has toured Canada with Bedouin Soundclash and played historic shows during the Vancouver riots. This show is a great opportunity to catch up with a local hero before Edmontonians have to go back to sharing him with the rest of the world.
