Oakridge Ave.


After several years of writing and playing the venues that birthed other Kingston greats like The Mahones, The Glorious Sons and The Tragically Hip, the three-piece honed their tight, indie rock sound into what it is today: a blend of influences from Canada’s rich musical tapestry, including Bahamas, The Weakerthans and The Lowest of the Low.

These experiences have culminated in their forthcoming album, jumpstarted by a chance encounter with one of the band’s heroes, legendary Canadian indie rocker Ian Blurton (Change of Heart, Blurtonia, C’mon). Recorded at ProGold in Toronto, Blurton crafted and refines the album’s sound, helping Oakridge Ave. incorporate new textures and ideas into their fresher, more thoughtful songwriting. The result is like a good Canadian ale; darker, rich and complex, but accessible and smooth, best enjoyed with good friends having a good time.
