Aquakultre began as the solo project of Lance Sampson and has evolved into a full band with diverse musical backgrounds. Nick Dourado (Budi Band), Jeremy Costello (Special Costello), and Nathan Doucet joined Lance to build Aquakultre into a powerhouse of sound.

Lance was inspired to take music seriously following his release from federal prison at the age of 20. While incarcerated, he took advantage of a guitar rental service and with the help of fellow inmates, taught himself how to play, and used music as a means of reflection. His track Sure was written while in prison and marked a transition from his previous musical endeavour, Lex, a hardcore emcee.  Sure is the song that brought home the 2018 CBC Searchlight win.

Now, Aquakulture self-describes his music as “aquavibe” – a sound that is as smooth as it is infectious. Duane Jones of Art Pays Me describes Aquakultre as having a “prenatural gift for individuation and inspiration” and describes his music as touching on “nu-blues, R&B, and spacious neo-soul.”
