The Pistolwhips are a blues-infused indie rock band from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The quartet is comprised of frontman Rylan Schultz, guitarist Paul Kuzbik, bass guitarist Zach Davies, and drummer Tallus Scott. The Pistolwhips combine upbeat indie rock tunes with old school blues licks and a dose of psychedelia to create a sound that is dynamic and captivating. In a relatively short period of time, The Pistolwhips have performed across Canada at a number of festivals such as Canadian Music Week, JUNOfest, The Sasktel Jazz Festival, MOSOfest, The Red Bull Sound Stage, Sasktel Summer Invasion, and Winnipeg’s Prairie Barge Festival. The Pistolwhips made their first trip overseas to perform a string of shows in London, England in October of 2014. The band’s powerful stage presence combined with their epic live performances and huge local following has led to some hailing them as a “local super group”.

The Pistolwhips released a 4 song EP in late 2012 that was very well received in their home province. After winning the RAWLCO 10K20 Award from Saskatoon rock station Rock 102FM, The Pistolwhips set out to makes their debut LP. The Pistolwhips released “On Your Side” in July of 2014. Described as “another definite winner”, “On Your Side” is composed of 10 songs and was recorded by Ryan Andersen (AC/DC, Sarah McLachlan) in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Once again, “On Your Side” was very well received by their home province, and was named Best Album of 2014 by Planet S Readers in Saskatoon.

The Pistolwhips have shared the stage with Yukon Blonde, The Sheepdogs, Monster Truck, One Bad Son, Dragonette, Bend Sinister, The Deep Dark Woods, and 36!. The Pistolwhips continue to be road warriors. In February of 2015 they embarked on their biggest tour of Western Canada to date, including a performance at Vancouver’s Media Club and a show with fellow Saskatchewan band Close Talker in Kelowna.
