Founded by Vince Fontaine, Indian City is a pop rock group based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Catchy hooks, airtight melodies and lyrics that feel millennial enough to appeal across a wide demographic. Their unique blend of female and male vocals complement each other creating a rich and smooth signature sound.
Making their debut in 2012, Fontaine was set on bringing razor-sharp talent to his musical collective akin to the Toronto-based band, Broken Social Scene and global influences, such as Carlos Santana’s Supernatural. Indian City has become a strong voice for Indigenous cultures of North America often highlighting relevant issues past, present and future.
Indian City features vocalists Don Amero, Jeremy Koz, Neewa Mason and Gabrielle Fontaine as well as long-time band mate Lawrence “Spatch” Mulhall. Indian City adds to the growing number of Indigenous artists sharing toward a strong and fair legacy of Indigenous peoples.
Indian City’s performance highlights include: Summerfest, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in New York City and Washington, D.C.; Canada Day in Ottawa on Parliament Hill; APTN’s Ab Day Live; North American Indigenous Games; Stampede Park; Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra; Canada Winter Games; Windspear Centre, Edmonton; Canada CP 150 Cross Country Train; 2018 Indspire Awards; and Thunder Bay Symphony, to name a few.
Indian City has released three albums to date: “Supernation” (2012), “Colors” (2013) and the JUNO-nominated “Here & Now” (2017). Their fourth album, “Code Red,” will be released in October 2021.
