Originally from Nova Scotia, the artist born Leslie Feist joined Calgary-based punk band called Placebo at age 15. After a stint as the rhythm guitarist for Canadian indie-rock outfit By Divine Right, Feist set out on a musical path that included singing on Peaches’ full-length debut and being a founding member of Broken Social Scene, whose first album was the 2002 Juno Award-winning You Forgot It in People, as well as touring with both acts.
Lord Huron was created by Los Angeles-based Ben Schneider. Born and raised in Michigan, Schneider drew inspiration from the Great Lakes, which were carved by glaciers 14,000 years ago, and his music stands in awe and wonder of the natural world.
After writing and recording two independent EPs (Into the Sun and Mighty) on his own, demand grew for Lord Huron to perform live. Schneider recruited friends Mark Barry (percussion), Miguel Briseño (bass) and Tom Renaud (guitar). Having first played music together at the tender age of 12, the group reunited and quickly hit their stride, transforming the project into a full-fledged band. Lord Huron signed with IAMSOUND, and the label released 2012’s Lonesome Dreams, and Strange Trails in 2015.
Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO award-winning & two-time Polaris Music Prize listed musician and songwriter.
2018 saw the release of Dan’s 5th full length More or Less, an album about witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck, Blonde Redhead, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), More or Less features singles “Troubled Mind”, “Fool For Waiting” and “Just Fear”.
