The Confusionaires are an Edmonton, AB-based rock & roll trio that is unsurprisingly touted as a ‘rockabilly band‘ and although their ties to traditional rock & roll are strong, their music and delivery are more than a few steps away from the early recordings of Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. In terms of energy, The Confusionaires carry just as much swagger as the bands in the Punk Resurgence as they do the style of the Rockabilly Resurgence, and the brand new full length album “Between The Headache & The Heartache” weaves between unbridled rock & roll adrenaline and traditional rock & roll fun, and The Confusionaires wear a grin that so seamlessly becomes a cynical smirk.
“Between The Headache & The Heartache” (December 2019) is an appropriate and timely response to their 2018 debut “Make A Little Mess.” Although the debut album is still, and will always be a point of pride, The Confusionaires have grown as a band and are much better suited to fill the studio and the stage, and show no signs of wavering from that course. This is reinforced by The Confusionaires consistent energetic live performances, intelligent songwriting, and dynamic musicianship that serves to increase their demand throughout Alberta.
Having released their first commercial radio single “Many Miles To Go” in August 2019 with an accompanying music video documenting the recording process, The Confusionaires are primed and ready to perform their signature blend of original songs and Confusionaire’d up cover songs in live music venues and festival stages across Canada and the globe.
