Captain Sparky is a three piece folk punk band based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Formed in 2012 as a project between vocalist Julie Nix, and solo folk punk artist Rodeo – the band originally started playing shows as Come With Me (If You Want To Live) – supported by a drummer and bassist. During the winter of 2012, Julie and Rodeo started playing acoustically. Joined by long time friend and violinist Devon, they toured the United States alongside Cud Eastbound in early 2013. During this time, the band took on the name Captain Sparky and started writing new material – which was self released as a self titled EP in May 2013.
Writing songs about their community, their heartbreak, and their hope for a better world, Captain Sparky is emotionally driven, high energy folk punk.
