How many Canadian gospel or soul bands can you name off the top of your head? Sad isn’t it? Well it’s time that you add The Ballantynes to that list. The Vancouver band just released their latest work this past April, the single “Faith” with a B-side to accompany it, and both tracks are very refreshing. The Ballantynes have four vocalists, two of which have incredible sounding voices with the range to boot.
Unfortunately, they finished their West Coast tour at the end of this past March and have never gone too far from home. If you’re anywhere near the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver on June 15th, check them out live. They won’t disappoint. And if you needed more incentive, they’ll also be playing with a band that has been discussed here before, the Zebrassieres.
