Crash Test Dummies

The Crash Test Dummies are a Canadian folk rock/alternative rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The band is most identifiable through Brad Roberts (vocals, guitar) and his distinctive bass-baritone voice. The band members have fluctuated over the years, but its best known line-up consisted of Roberts, Ellen Reid (co-vocals, keyboards), Brad's brother Dan Roberts (bass guitar, backing vocals), Benjamin Darvill (harmonica, mandolin), and Mitch Dorge (drums, percussion). The band is best known for their 1993 single "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm."

Port Cities

In the brief period of time since Port Cities unleashed their incendiary debut—a wildly self-assured collection of sparkling, rootsy pop that showcases the Nova Scotia trio's devotion to songwriting—the band's been hard at work bringing it to the masses. They've continued to explore and evolve their ambitious pop sound, melding diverse musical backgrounds to create an alchemy that's part art, part songwriting science, and all magic: the nimble dynamism of Breagh MacKinnon's smoky, jazz-indebted delivery, Dylan Guthro's simmering and soulful R&B swagger, and Carleton Stone's razor-sharp, romantic rock ‘n' roll.
