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, intricate horn lines and emotional complexity. Their lyrics toe the line between deeply personal and profoundly universal, inclining audience to engage with the duo’s live and recorded performances.
X62’s newest single, “Love Me Still”, was released September 13, 2019. “‘Love Me Still’ is one of my favorite 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. “Every time the choir added a layer of harmony I got more and more excited about sharing this new song.” says Sauvé. 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).
“Love Me Still” will be the band’s third single. Their second single, “DOWN”, was released in August 2018 and gained X62 radio airplay on Mix107.9 (Ft. Saskatchewan, AB) and 102.3 NOW Radio (Edmonton, AB).
With an energizing and dynamic stage presence, the band toured in Ontario, CA in August 2019, performing at the Play in the Parks summer festival (Toronto). In April 2018, X62 placed first in the Students’ Association of MacEwan University showdown competition, leading to performances at the Kaleido Festival (Edmonton, AB, 2018) and MacEwan Fall Fest (Edmonton, AB, 2018).
