Guitarist, composer, and producer Vince Fontaine, best known for his multi-award winning band Eagle & Hawk, is making waves with his new ‘supergroup’ Indian City and their debut album Supernation. The official Supernation album release party will take place at the West End Cultural Centre on Thursday, August 23rd.

Indian City is the realization of a creative concept that has been taking shape in Fontaine's mind for the last few years. Building on his 20-year career in the music industry, the founder and leader of one of North America's most successful Indigenous groups of the past 10 years has brought together some of today’s best Indigenous music talents in Indian City.

Indian City includes vocalists Pamela Davis and William Prince as well as established award-winning musicians Neewa Mason, Tik Mason (Segway) and rising star Don Amero. The 10-piece live band is rounded out by Eagle & Hawk veterans Marty Chapman on drums, slick keyboardist Gerry Atwell, traditional singer Ray “Coco” Stevenson and multi-style Native dancer Buffy Handel.

Indian City's sound is a mix of world music fusion combining Indigenous music elements and themes with pop, rock and folk. The band’s music and lyrics are expressions of the modern conscience of today's Indigenous people.

Indian City's debut CD Supernation has, in pre-release, already secured radio airplay and headline festival appearances as well as a Western Canadian Music Award nomination.

Members of Indian City have toured Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Collectively, they have earned over 40 music awards including 2 Juno Awards, 3 Western Canadian Music Awards, 2 Canadian Folk Music Awards, 5 Native American Music Awards and 12 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, 10 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards to name a few. These artists are no strangers to the main stage or the podium and all indicators suggest that collectively, Indian City will rise even higher.
