Pick Of The Day (Tomorrow Edition): The Express & Company

Hailing from Peterborough, this is a roots rock band fronted by Dylan Ireland.  Other members of the group include Melissa Payne (fiddle), Joe Hay (drums), Liam Wilson (bass) and Benj Rowland (multi-instrumentalist). The group has a self-titled EP to its credit, and has played over 200 shows with the likes of Whitehorse, The Sadies and Jenn Grant.
