Based in Charlottetown, Haunted Hearts is an independent alt-roots/country band comprised of Dennis Ellsworth, Johnny Ross, Mike MacDougall and Mark Geddes, who has recently taken over for Blu Gillis. Since forming in October of 2008, Haunted Hearts have won two Music PEI awards, as well as receiving a nomination for the Rising Star award at ECMA 2009. The band has been winning hearts with their explosive live performance and their diverse and brilliantly received debut album "Thank You, Goodnight". September 25, 2010, marks the release of "Howdy", Haunted Hearts second full length recording in as many years.
As a member of the Wonderful Grand Band, and co-founder of the Fables, Glenn Simmons could easily be pigeonholed as a Celtic/trad-only musician. Dispelling any possible misconceptions is his first solo album, "Sweet Vanilla ... and Assorted Flavours." He says that creating and producing a solo album has been a very positive experience. "You certainly have more control, and I like that. When you're in a group, it's a democracy." Listeners will also be glad he finally took the leap toward giving the world a taste of all the flavours his music has to offer.
