While close relationships at home didn’t see the benefits of a Friday to Sunday weekend, and free weekday evenings, I imagined all the love that could fill the days between Sunday and Tuesday, when we weren’t on stage.”
Powered by three classically trained vocalists and a former punk rock drummer, the group was named Folk Music Ontario’s Songwriter of the Year in 2020, and in 2021 took home the Forest City London Music Award in the Folk/Roots category.
