Biography

An iconic brand of Arctic Soul is distinguished by the deep brooding voice of Joshua Qaumariaq set against a rock and roll and blues sound echoing from the depth of the Northern tundra. The band includes front men Joshua Qaumariaq and Jeff Maurice supported by various musicians, including many Iqaluit-based performers. Their blend of Inuktitut and English songs sing the Arctic blues about universal themes of light and darkness and closeness and isolation. While the Trade-Offs are staples of the Iqaluit music scene, they have played all over Canada on big and small stages including mainstage performances at major festivals.
