FKB: FKB, the high-energy rock band hailing from Bonnyville, Alberta, Canada, has captured audiences with their classic melodies and powerful performances over the last 8 years. Their dedication to a fast and exciting rock show caught the attention early on of Clayton Bellamy (The Road Hammers) who produced their debut EP 123 FKB. The band has gone on to tour Canada and share the stage with high profile artists such as The Trews, The Road Hammers, and Dan Davidson.
Formed in 2009 out of a mutual love of the music from the 50s and 60s, FKB was winning over fans while still in high school with their eclectic early performances that paid homage to their heroes like Elvis, The Beatles, and The Beach Boys. The band began performing wherever they could and would spend every day locked in a garage learning their favorite songs and perfecting their vocal harmonies. Their hard work quickly began paying off, as they became a staple in the area performing multiple shows a week. They met Clayton Bellamy at one of these performances and he took notice of both their songwriting style and live presence. He made the offer on the spot to produce their first album so they wasted no time and began writing and working on 123 FKB within days. Clayton would bring in help from his friend Scott Baggett (John Waite, Alison Krauss, The Road Hammers) to mix and engineer the EP and help refine the band’s sound. The resulting EP, released in 2014, was a success and led to the single “Crystal Ball” which garnered radio airplay across Canada and saw the band voted by fans as one of the top 100 campus bands on CBC Music in 2015.
After touring and promoting 123 FKB, the band reunited with Clayton to begin work on their follow up in 2016. FKB announced a new tour of North America in the spring and summer of 2017 and released their new single "Bright Lights"!
