Folk

Born in B.C., formed in Montreal, and currently based out of a Buick wood-paneled wagon, Steve Brockley (guitar, vocals), Kevin Bertram (upright bass) and Leon Power (drums, mandolin) are not wasting time. In fact, they’ve been accused of stretching it. Getting to the heart of a song is their main goal – not just digging into the notes, but nailing those spaces in between the notes. When you’ve got a good song, you want to let it breath. A percussive double bass swagger, drum grooves from the gut, and a rolling finger picked guitar bring their brand of folk music to life. There’s no rush to the end of a song – if it is right, it happens. The main thing is not to hurry.

“Steve and the lads make up one of the tightest trio’s I’ve ever seen, the music that comes forth is nothing less than awesome, not “that’s rad dude” awesome but the origin of the term, to hold you in pause – to inspire awe. An album and live show that hold you.” - Gern F. of the United Steel Workers of Montreal
