“The Corks played last, with a bluesy rock sound that occasionally teeters towards funk. They brought a well-needed bolt of lightning to the venue. Songs like Take Me Home proved to be not only excellently crafted and performed, but insanely catchy.”
- The McGill Tribune
“The Corks proved themselves to be a talented bunch with the lead singer possessing a great voice and dominant stage presence. He was constantly jumping around, sometimes even hanging over the guardrail at the front of the stage. The guitarist was also equally talented, playing a number of catchy, upbeat riffs with a slight blues and funk influence that sounded straight out of the 90s”

Formed in 2015, The Corks are a four-piece alternative rock band from Montreal. What started off as a couple of friends jamming covers together slowly turned into a songwriting powerhouse. Philippe Moisan (guitar), Sacha Gubany (vocals), Jonathan Verreault (drums) and Vincent Lambert (bass) met in their first year of University and instantly clicked through their common love for rock’n’roll.
The Corks are best known for their energetic live performances, where frontman Sacha Gubany’s on-stage antics are sure to leave the crowd astonished. It’s hard to grasp just how he can sing so powerfully while jumping around so much. Some of the band’s highlights include being featured as one of Montreal’s top 5 acts to watch in 2017, and playing multiple shows across Ontario and Quebec, including festivals like CMW and Indie Week.
The boys have recently released their 2nd EP, ''A Lovely Time With Your Friends & I'', availabe on all platforms now. Recorded and mixed by Peter Edwards (Grimskunk) at Studio Plateau in Montreal, the 3 track record features a mix of funk, pop and rock. Catchy vocals combined with infectious basslines and groovy guitar riffs are sure to make heads nod and feet tap. Through clever layering of guitars, staggering vocals, as well as stellar production, The Corks come together in this moody cut to create their most ambitious project yet.
