New Country Rehab

No mistake - it's the first Thusday night show in Odeon history. But these guys are worth staying up late on a school night for. New Country Rehab cuts through the clutter of watered-down musical imitations with a modern, high-voltage, alt-country sound. Combining sharp innovation and a deep respect and knowledge of timeless musical themes and motifs, New Country Rehab’s powerful music is full of love, loss, longing and joy. They are ”more Arcade Fire than Lady Antebellum…like Canada’s answer to the Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons,” Nigel Williamson, UNCUT.

Spearheaded by lead singer and fiddle player, John Showman is joined by Champagne James Robertson on guitar, Ben Whiteley on double bass, and Roman Tome on drums and backing vocals, the Toronto based collective is ”poised to be the next big thing in Canadian music,” Tom Power, CBC Radio. Growing audiences in Canada, the U.S. And Europe are responding to New Country Rehab’s infectious love and enthusiasm for the music they are playing. The band make it, ”super accessible, not only to fans of roots/folk/country, but even to the broader, less country inclined audience,” Josef Jensen, Indie Artist Podcast.

Their sophomore album Ghost of Your Charms ”marks a step forward in songwriting, John Showman’s vocals sound clearer and more confident, and there’s a focus on storytelling, harmonies and arrangements (which may surprise, given the band’s reputation for wild abandon at shows),” Sarah Greene, NOW. We're really looking forward to having them back at the Odeon - they're a great band and the nicest guys. Join us!
