Calgary Music Spotlight: Feel Alright

SPOTLIGHT on Feel Alright

Craig Fahner was born in the suburbs of Calgary, Alberta. He played in sloppy rock and roll bands such as The Ostrich before moving to Montreal, where he played with other expatriate Albertans in Silver Dapple. In 2010 Craig decided to get his masters degree and moved to Pittsburgh, where there are no other Albertans to make music with. And so he's been putting together a collection of songs under the name Feel Alright. His songs are borne of homesickness, conjuring the summer by howling sunshine harmonies through tape hiss. When he comes back for summer, Craig is joined by Dan Christiansen, Brady Kirchner and Dallin Ursenbach. The group can usually be found playing in basements and hot dog restaurants.
