Cadre is Bill Colgate, Cam MacInnes, Joey Gaitanis, Jeff Dunk and Rob Greenway. We play original, lyric driven, neoclassic uprooted roots.
If a “cadre” is a dedicated group with a common objective, then Toronto-based band Cadre is certainly all those things – and much more. Based around the award-winning “uprooted roots” songs of singer/actor Bill Colgate and the wildly inventive slide playing of guitarist/producer Cam MacInnes, Cadre’s groove-filled tunes provide the perfect emotional bedrock for Colgate’s musings on life, love, Dante’s Inferno and fine-tooled leather.
Equally at home on the festival stage or in the studio, the music of Cadre has (as one music critic noted) “the potential to heal a world suffering from insipid popular music“.
