Spotlight on Marvest will introduce you to the talented music makers in Ottawa performing FREE! shows as part of the Marvest offshoot of CityFolk.


Friday Sept 16, 2017 – 9:30 PM – Industria Pizzeria + Bar (225 Marché Way)

What was your reaction to the news you’d be a part of Marvest and who was the first person you told?
We were very pleased and honoured to be a part of this great festival and to get a chance to bring our music to a new audience who may not been exposed to us before.

Please describe your sound.
Thrust is spontaneous, energetic, current and hip. This is feel good music that everyone can get down on.

How did you get started on your musical journey?
We got started when we realized that although the 3 of us come from different musical backgrounds, we all share a common interest in creating something new and exploring a new music direction where we can each have an equal say in where the music will go and take us.

What can music fans expect from your show? Will you be playing or releasing any new music?
We will be playing some new material for sure and will be releasing a full length in 2018. Its hard to say what fans can expect from the show because we (the musicians) don’t even know what to expect until we sit down and let the music take over which is the whole point of what we do. We have lots of fun playing on stage and I think the audience can pick up on that and we all feed off of each other. Its gonna be fun, groovy,energetic, slow, fast, loud, quiet and just about everything in between.

What artists are you hoping to catch during this year’s Cityfolk and Marvest?
Definitely The Chocolate Hot Pockets. Those guys are awesome!
