Drawing influence from pop, soul, and electronic music, the Edmonton-based duo X62, (ten-sixty-two) seamlessly blends together elements of each genre to create
musically versatile and lyrically compelling songs. Consisting of Joel Toews and Sauvé (so-vay), X62 is influenced by Sam Smith, Emilié Sande, Brasstracks and NEEDTOBREATHE. Their sound is emphasized by gospel backup vocals, engaging horn lines and emotional complexity. Their lyrics toe the line between deeply
personal and profoundly universal, inclining audiences to engage with the duo’s live and recorded
performances. X62’s newest single, “Love Me Still”, was be released September 2019. “‘Love Me Still’ is one of my favourite songs we’ve written to date,” says Joel, “the whole song builds from start to finish, both emotionally and musically.” The song features a choir, arranged by X62 and recorded in Edmonton. Additional production for the single was provided by Robbie Townsend (Talltale, Laur Elle) and the track was mixed by Brad Smith (JUNO-nominated Nuela Charles, iamhill).
The band’s newest single “Nobody,” will be released early spring 2020.
