Ce qui débuta initialement comme projet solo pour l’auteur-compositeur Erik Lind se transforma en The Orchard au début de 2011. Le nouveau quatuor créa dès lors une musique indie pop rock apaisante, teintée d’un son folk, et vu rapidement leur base de fans s’agrandir à Montréal. Lind fut rejoint par le guitariste Mikael Tobias, la bassiste Dee Lisa Perusse, et le batteur Michel Aubinais afin de créer un son riche et mélodieux.

Le groupe débuta le travail sur leur premier EP en 2012. Enregistré à Montréal, au studio Treatment Room (Plants & Animals, The Acorn, Angela Desveaux) et au studio douillet du domicile de Tobias, le EP Great White North propose une introduction condensée aux compositions sincères de Lind.

"Melodies that you can hum along to and lyrics that will touch your brain..." Amanda Putz - CBC Bandwidth

"We can’t help but listen to the tight-knit group and be reminded of the likes of Wintersleep, Dan Mangan and Great Lake Swimmers... a well-produced album full of musical variation with dips and peaks... It’s evident there’s some sure talent present, and genre blending has been catapulted to new heights." Brontë Martin - The Main MTL

By 2011, what had begun as a solo outlet for veteran songwriter Erik Lind had evolved into The Orchard - a four-piece outfit delivering soothing folk-tinged indie pop rock with a growing fan base in their hometown. Guitarist Mikael Tobias, bassist Lisa Dee Perusse, and drummer Michel Aubinais join Lind to create a lush, melodic sound.

In the early spring of 2012, the foursome headed into Montreal's Treatment Room Studio (Plants & Animals, The Acorn, Angela Desveaux) to begin laying down tracks for a self-produced EP. From there, work continued through much of the summer in the familiar confines of Tobias's home studio. The end result, the Great White North EP, offers a concise introduction to Lind's earnest, bittersweet songwriting.
