In the chaotic world of rock 'n' roll, in which the lifespan
of most bands can be measured in terms of a few years or a few months, John Kay and
Steppenwolf have emerged as one of rock's most enduring and respected bands, delivering hardhitting,
personally-charged music for more than three decades.
In the late 1960s, Steppenwolf embodied that era's social, political and philosophical restlessness,
building an impressive body of edgy, uncompromising rock 'n' roll that retains its emotional
resonance more than three decades after the band's formation. Such Steppenwolf standards as
"Born to Be Wild," "Magic Carpet Ride," "Rock Me" and "Monster" stand amongst Rock's most
At last count, the band's worldwide record sales exceed 25 million units. Its songs remain fixtures
on classic-rock radio, and have been licensed for use in approximately 50 motion pictures and an
even greater number of television programs. And, in addition to being the first band to use the term
"heavy metal" in a song (in "Born to Be Wild"), Steppenwolf's punchy style helped to establish the
fundamentals of the hard-rock sound that would flourish in the 1970s.

Canadian JUNO nominated rock band The Glorious Sons,
having burst onto the scene with 7 consecutive top-10 rock radio hits (“Mama” #6, “White Noise”
#2, “Heavy” #2, "Lightning" #2, "The Contender" #1, "Sometimes On A Sunday" #7, "Kill The
Lights" #7 and climbing), this band’s ascent in the world of Canadian music has been quick and
well-deserved. The Sons were by all metrics, the most-played new Canadian artist on Rock radio
from 2014 through 2016. In January the band released their latest single, "Kill The Lights" as a gift
to fans. The track was #1 most added at rock radio in it's first week. They are currently working on
their second full-length album which is expected to be released in June 2017.
