Transgressions was produced by Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes, Arcade Fire, Patrick Watson, Young Galaxy) at Breakglass Studio in Montreal.

avec/with Paul Cargnello
Auteur-compositeur-interprète, Paul Cargnello a bâti sa carrière avec la conviction que les paroles valent tout autant que la musique. Il sait livrer un son qui surprend et séduit à chacune de ses créations. Mêlant activisme, éclectisme et émotion brute, Paul est devenu l’un des plus importants et prolifiques chanteurs folk de Montréal, ainsi qu’un militant et un influenceur auprès de sa communauté montréalaise bien-aimée.
The Steady Swagger
As soon as they get going, so does their hungry public. For the past six years The Steady Swagger have been crafting their unique style of folk storytelling grounded by a solid rock & roll foundation. They play a deft melange of high octane theatrical folk music punctuated by surf/prog rock, jazz and pirate shanties. Montreal’s charismatic power trio have a voracious drive, and it’s quite the spectacle. Stillness and mayhem. Waltzes and mosh pits. Roaring shouts and sing-alongs. It’s a potent mixture of festive and dark, comforting and angry, comical and dramatic. It’s rugged, charismatic, finely distilled and ferociously fun.
