Dwayne Gretzky is a live music collective celebrating the greatest songs of all time. Transcending both era and genre, this prodigiously talented group of Toronto musicians captivates audiences with a masterfully curated tour of artists from both the classic and modern pop canon - from Bowie to Beyoncé, Springsteen to Spears, The Supremes to The Strokes. With tasteful precision, chameleonic versatility and a flair for the dramatic, Dwayne Gretzky scratches our collective itch to be surprised by the familiar.
In an increasingly saturated and scattered music landscape defined by predictable playlists and individualized consumption, Dwayne Gretzky’s high-energy nostalgia trips recall the serendipity of flipping through the radio dial, and the joy of coming together en masse to celebrate and sing along to the best songs ever written. Boasting 100+ straight sold-out shows in their hometown of Toronto and with venue capacities growing into the multiple-thousands, Dwayne Gretzky’s momentum is a testament to the band shattering conventions and re-defining what audiences want in a live music experience.
Captivated by the immense power of music since she was young, Kandle Osborne devoted herself ruthlessly to playing and creating it; first as a teenager learning Nirvana songs in the cafeteria and then eventually as a young woman, teaching herself to sing.
Enveloped by the endlessly innovative and supportive Montreal music scene, she released her first full-length, In Flames, to critical acclaim.
Kandle’s latest musical offering is the 2018 track “When My Body Breaks”, featuring July Talk’s Peter Dreimanis and Broken Social Scene’s Sam Goldberg.
