About El Niven & The Alibi:

Unapologetically original, uncompromising in their vision, Edmonton-based El Niven and The Alibi (ENATA) create music which is equal parts poetically-bittersweet and rank rock and roll. With a natural bent for lyrics, ENATA's sound, infused with life-experience and grunge rock attitude, is undeniably theirs.

Rich with influences in grunge rock, classic rock and electric blues music, ENATA's newest single Cigarettes embodies an unfiltered, no filler attitude delivered with cool-handed intention.  Bold and rich with both love and angst, ENATA latest single will leave you satisfied and craving more.

Niven's music grabs people's interest. As he says, "I have things to say and people to reach." ENATA brings unprecedented energy to their live shows, playing on stages of all sizes across Western Canada, the U.S and South America, having performed on large stages with the likes of U.S.S., Current Swell, and Dear Rouge. To supplement live shows and deliver music to everyone, ENATA has been engaged in a project called the "- Or Busk" tours. Most recently, in the winter of 2020, they did a "Baja - Or Busk" tour. On this trip they drove the entire length of the Baja, Mexico from Tijuana, to LaPaz and back over three weeks, picking up local gigs and playing in the streets nightly. And in 2018, they completed an "America - Or Busk" tour, where they drove from Edmonton, Alberta to New York, across to L.A. and back to Edmonton, playing fully-amplified and electric gigs on the streets and creating content of the tour enroute.

This project is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council and the City of Edmonton.
