Album Notes
From Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, The Maykings proudly release their new album "7 YRS".

Formed in 2003 from the ashes of Shady Pines and Tim Balash & the Chrome Magpies, The Maykings combine Alberta roots with North American flavoured indie pop to create their unique sound.

Tim Balash, formerly of the pre-spandex era Big House, is a rare breed of songwriter that has the intensity of a punk rock guitarist with the lyricism of Townes VanZandt. Balash's signature delivery has been called "waxing poetic like Dylan being chased with whiskey".
Brent Oliver, ex- of Slow Fresh Oil & the Maybellines, simply rips the heart from the listener's body. After years of hardship and experience, Oliver's travels come through loud and clear on the band's debut - "7 YRS".

On "7 YRS", The MayKings equally blend parts Mekons, Bruce Springsteen, The Band and the Replacements. Duncan Turner's scorching guitar and Marek Tyler's steady, enigmatic drumming completes what will surely be an album to remember.

The Maykings live set is also something to behold. Dawning the sharp suits of blues and country players of old, the band take the audience on a fun, beer soaked journey full of two-steppin' favourites and rollicking dance numbers. They are not to be missed.
