Lead by vocalist Colyn Cameron, Wake! Owl, are a folk outfit from Vancouver! The team of troubadours got together over to pour their musical know-how into creating the 5 songs collectively known as the Wild Country EP. The songs evoke a disparate landscape that would be well suited to the snow capped hinterlands of Canada. Yet the tracks bear the glow of a great log fire to produce an EP that is both warm and inviting, bursting full of promise.
Fans of Boy & Bear, or Bright Eyes will no doubt enjoy Wake! Owl. They’ve drawn comparisons from the likes of Tallest Man on Earth and Mumford and Sons, though I believe that’s more to do with the soaring violin and raspy vocals rather than bluegrass banjo’s.
Below is a sneaky taster of what the Wild Country EP is made of (which I found over at Fresh Muse) and you can find out much more info through the Wake! Owl FB page. Their music is available for a donation via their Bandcamp page and I can assure you, any dollars you put forward will go a long way to ensuring the longevity of this project, so get involved!
