The Wilderness of Manitoba  +The Mountains & The Trees

“The band has been galvanized by its metaphorical new blood as they bypass folk pretty much altogether and land squarely at rollicking, fervent rock.” – All Around Sound

“The earlier rootsy style of TWOM is replaced by a sophisticated, mature and lush sound a touch suggestive of peak-era Fleetwood Mac.” – New Canadian Music “The Wilderness of Manitoba is a Toronto-based trio that specializes in making atmospheric folk-rock with a tinge of Fleetwood Mac-inspired harmonies.” – Consequence of Sound

The Mountains & The Trees

Folk / Folk Rock / Acoustic

Genre-wise, Janes has too many effects pedals for folk, too many banjos for rock-n-roll (if you're wondering how many banjos are too many - it's one). He playfully describes himself as Folk-Pop or Folk-N-Roll. Recordings contain a variety of instruments, such as guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, bells, and drums. Live, Janes backs himself up with the help of some looping-pedals, some deft footwork, and a little luck.
