Albertan Singer Shane Larmand combines roots-rock & Americana tunes

Shane Larmand is a roots-rock, Americana tunesmith, featuring shadowy blue songs of prairie anxiety and mountain love. This campfire tapestry of crackling wood, wire and crooning calls is an enticing mixture of the classic sound of an experienced musician with the fresh tones of an artist embarking on a new singer songwriter journey. 
Couple this with his distinctive, naturalist art personally created in a fine line, micron style and you will see how a Shane Larmand show is a riveting synthesis of line, lyric, passion and presence. His lyrics are introspective and often delve into themes such as love, society and the artist’s battles with an anxiety disorder. He hopes fans can relate to some of the darker themes he explores in order to shine a little light on some of their own struggles. This Alberta Indie artist has felt the music in his blood since being born to a very musical family; his father - Art Larmand - was a consummate entertainer who performed in the gritty heart of the Yonge Street, 60’s music scene for a decade at The Zanzibar Tavern. 

Shane carries on this confidence as an entertainer and songwriter and is so grateful for the gift of music handed down to him by his father. His old Guild and Fender F-65 acoustic guitars are the physical embodiment of this gift. Though he owes great thanks to the part his father played in his music, Shane’s own stock is rising – He won the Runner-Up Prize in the Sunrise Records Local Artist Contest in 2018 which subsequently saw his debut CD – “You Are My Home” – see distribution from Vancouver to Winnipeg in all Sunrise Locations. 

He has toured various parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan for the past two summers and he just finished the “Root Foot” 2019 Summer Tour of the Kootenay area of BC with The Shane Larmand Band. He is a veteran music educator, has played at The North Country Fair in 2017, The Willows Folk Festival in 2018 and 2019, was featured on several college radio stations during his tour(CJSW, CJSR, CFCR and CJTR), and recently was a feature artist during the 2019 Winter Blues Concert to raise funds for a new music theatre in Bonnyville, Alberta. 
Be sure to experience The Shane Larmand Band. This Americana, Roots-Rock, trio features Randy Padlesky on percussion and Kevan Vachon on Banjo. This distinctive trio is very catchy with a strong vocal presence that is sure to appeal to fans of The Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Eagles, Neil Young and Mumford and Sons.
