You only have until midnight on Sunday to vote for Hamilton band Poor Angus in the semi-finals of the CBC Music Searchlight competition.

After defeating Montreal's Motel Raphael and Kitchener-Waterloo's Ambre McLean in the previous round, the band is now up against Sherman Downey and The Ambiguous Case from St. John's.

On Friday morning, vocalist Joel Guenther and bassist DJ Moons stopped by CBC Hamilton for a live interview and stripped-down acoustic performance.

Watch the folk troubadours talk about their creative influences, travelling the country and how they gel as band.
