Marin Patenaude: "It’s a rarity to find an artist who is just as comfortable in the green fields of country/roots as they are in the smoky city backrooms of jazz and soul." – Ride the Tempo

Pugs & Crows: "Rejuvenating, visceral and absolutely stunning" – CBC

On their fourth full-length album UNCLE!, Juno award winning Vancouver indie rock jazz art folk instrumentalists Pugs & Crows (who last performed at the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival in 2016) join forces with vocalist Marin Patenaude. Her earthy, soulful voice coupled with the band's trademark cinematic pacing, melodicism, and gritty elegance transports the music to new heights.
