In a Rock and Roll world dominated by Male singing voices the Hired Guns have Lead Singer Alyssa Harper from Tignish. You can hear many of her Female rock idols in her singing but make no mistake her voice is a tune all her own.
Every Great Lead Singer needs a Great Guitarist and that would be Corey Buchannan. The Bloomfield Native, has a look that just screams Rock and Roll and credits, epic solos from Led Zeppelin and hard thrashing shreds from Judas Priest to fueling his love of the Guitar.
Nigel Perry from Tyne Valley adds a unique depth to the band especially when he swaps out his bass for the Saxophone. The youngest band-member is also currently studying music at UPEI.
That leaves founding members the Brothers Sweet. The older of the two, Jaxen plays guitar, and adds yet another level to this complex band when he plays accompanying piano or harmonica
Bringing all these talented musicians together on Drums is Jordie. The “quiet” Brother lets his pounding percussion do the talking for him.
Formed in 2021 the Band always connects with the crowd, large or small. In Charlottetown the Hired Guns can boast of multiple shows performed at Hunters, the Beer Gardens, and the Iconic Old Dublin Pub. Their biggest show to date would be their return to the Rock the Boat Music Fest in Tyne Valley. Many festival goers left saying the “Hired Guns,” stole the show.
