Long Range Hustle have been touring across Canada for the past month in support of their new full-length album ‘Town‘ and bring that tour to Kingston when they hit the stage at The Mansion on March 29th.
“At some point, every good Canadian band decides that driving across Saskatchewan in February is a good idea,” joked vocalist/guitarist/violinist, Paul Brogee, in a release. “When you conquer those wild open spaces, those big empty gaps inherent in every cross-Canada tour, it feels like you’ve gained admission to a secret club. You’ve completed a ritual of music that not everyone takes on. With the release of Town, we’re pretty happy to be joining the club. Plus, our moms made us all get CAA.”
Brogee continued, “Carry Us is a song about road-tripping with your closest friends. It’s about being all-at-once tired and happy and sick and overjoyed to see the sunrise because you’ve been driving for 24 straight hours – and given that we’re about to trek across this country again, it feels fitting to put it out now.”
The tour gives fans an opportunity to hear live renditions of some of the songs found on the band’s new album Town, which was released on February 15th.
Recorded at The Bathouse Studio outside of Kingston, the band worked with acclaimed Scottish producer and mixer, Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Wintersleep, Snow Patrol), to create the new album, which brings about a refined and evolved sound for the group, reflective of their persistent drive to push themselves as songwriters and performers.

Previously released album tracks, Morning Clover and Crush You have seen warm support from CBC Radio and campus stations across the country, while Crush You was featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday Canada’, as well as the ‘Rock Your Block’ and ‘Renegade Folk’ playlists.
From a sweat soaked club to a breezy festival stage, Long Range Hustle brings the warm infectious melodies, driving rhythms, and gorgeous harmonies, in spades.
A mix of high school and summer camp counsellor tenures brought the core of this southern Ontario five-piece together – Paul Brogee (vocals, guitar, violin), Jay Foster (vocals, piano), Mike Brogee (bass, vocals), and AJ Fisico (drums, vocals) with Ryan Pritchard (guitar) solidifying the line up in early 2017. Each of the five members come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to rock to classical, but all share a common love for songwriting and performing.
Over the last few years, touring has taken them from the Maritimes to Manitoba, where they’ve shared stages with Arkells, The Glorious Sons, Matt Mays, and Big Wreck, and delighted hometown crowds with month-long residencies at Toronto’s Dakota Tavern.
