The Nova Scotiables have built a deserved reputation across western Canada as a high energy maritime revue unmatched by their peers. Bringing an unconventional approach to traditional, original and contemporary maritime music, these musicians have become a hit, not just on the maritime circuit but with fans of all ages.

In such a short time the band built a resume that rivals veteran acts. Blending a tireless work ethic, boundless energy and professional composure, from 2015 to present they’ve been working full-time with music alongside a 9-5 grind. With the release of Self Titled (2017), folks can finally take home a taste of The Nova Scotiables, available on iTunes and all your favourite digital music retailers. The album captures the band’s original music and exemplifies their take on traditional tunes.
