rock, with a flash of aurora blue; mix in searing guitar, danceable grooves
and skilled songwriting. That’s the sound of Yellowknife’s
Priscilla’s Revenge, one of Northern Canada’s most prolific and
Since 2004 the band has been exploring the roots of blues/rock music and it
shows. Influences of Jimmy Reed,
Allman Brothers and Cream can be heard in their
tunes. There’s been an incredible progression and growth throughout their
three albums, and the original music they are writing is resonating with
The first two Priscilla’s Revenge albums both received nominations for
national awards. “That’s What I’ll Say,” from their second album, reached #6
on the National Aboriginal Countdown. While their songs have been played on
university stations and local stations across Canada, now, with the latest
album "Third Gear" songs have received national radio exposure on CBC’s
Saturday Night Blues and satellite station Galaxie Blues.
They've have two professional videos created by artists interested and
inspired by their music. "Brakes On" was featured in the winner of a 48 hour
video contest and "Am I Trapped in a Dream" was previewed at the Vancouver
Olympics at the NWT pavilion. National TV recently did a feature story about
the band on "The Mix" a weekly show on television station, APTN.
With "Third Gear" Priscilla has evolved to a point where their music is
getting noticed on the international scene. During their recent work with
Terry Manning (formerly of Compass Point Studios; Bahamas whose production
credits include Otis Reading, ZZ Top, George Thorogood among others) a new
level of maturity and professionalism has developed. Crowd response to their
original music played during the 2010 Olympics was stellar. Fans and radio
stations from as far away as Florida and Italy are turning their eyes North
and to Priscilla.
Norm Glowach: Born in Yellowknife NWT of Métis ancestry, Norm has been
involved in the northern music scene all his life. From the early days of
music programs and garage rock bands, Norman’s name has been synonymous as a
master of his primary instrument, the drums.
Throughout Norman’s long career in music, not only has he dedicated himself
to the North with his personal music, but has become an innovative leader
within the musical community. As well as practicing his art, he has been a
mentor for many musicians wanting to be on the cutting edge of technology.
When not working at the NWT Archives, Norman runs his recording studio
“Spiritwalker Productions” in Yellowknife. He is the most recorded drummer
in the north and has been a member of many different bands performing over a
period of 39 years in North.
Greg Nasogaluak: of Inuvialuit ancestry is originally from the community of
Tuktoyaktuk. He started playing the guitar at an early age and has continued
for the last 24 years. Encouraged by his parents, Eunice and William
Nasogaluak of the “Tuk Drummers and Dancers” he continues the tradition of
music in this long time northern family.
Greg’s guitar playing can be heard on many northern recording projects from
folk artists to punk rock groups. Greg is quickly becoming the “guitar
player to call” when musicians need a guitar track done in the studio. His
rock background, love of the blues, talent and dedication to his craft are
turning him into an excellent guitar player who is a joy to watch.
Blair Brezinski: Plays the bass. Born in Yellowknife, Blair had been playing
for many years with many local bands. When approached by Priscilla in the
early days, Blair looked at the blues-rock style of the band as a nice fit.
In the past five years since coming on board, he has been able to spread out
and develop his songwriting style and vocals pushing the collaborative
songwriting process to new areas.
