Move the Mountains Tour 2010 [PSA/Video]
Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver and Calgary, Alberta—Dedication Entertainment and KERFMUSIC have teamed up to present the Move The Mountains Tour 2010 featuring Fallan Soldier from Vancouver and Dragon Fli Empire from Calgary.
Showcasing western Canadian hip hop talent, the tour travels to six cities in June, with special guests Edmonton’s The Joe for the Alberta dates, and Vancouver’s Justin Brave for the BC dates. Additional local artists are featured on their home town bills.
“Hip-hop is urban music and urban culture” said Fallan Soldier. “There’s a lot in common between the BC and Alberta indie hip-hop scenes… it’s just the mountains seem to get in the way. We thought we’d do something about that by presenting a great night of western Canadian hip-hop and take it on the road.” Fallan Soldier released his debut album “Above The Call Of Duty” in 2009 which played strongly at community and campus radio throughout Canada.
He also released a music video of “Fights” and has toured throughout B.C. This will be his first tour to Alberta. Fallan Soldier is also actor Harris Allan who played Hunter on Queer As Folk for three seasons and has had numerous supporting roles in film and tv.
Dragon Fli Empire, a duo consisting of emcee Teekay and DJ Cosm, have produced three albums in eight years and are a mainstay in the Alberta hip-hop scene with their success spurred in part by the popularity of their bus-rider’s anthem, “Mount Pleasant”. Their most recent album Redefine, released in 2009, was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award and charted to #9 on the Earshot Hip-Hop chart. They are returning to the B.C. coast for the first time in four years. KERFMUSIC is western Canada’s on-line music store for independent artists. Dedication Entertainment is Fallan Soldier’s independent label.
