Winona Forever’s new album, Acrobat, takes listeners on an exciting journey

Vancouver’s Winona Forever have ridden a wave of musical curiosity and chemistry further than imagined when forming in 2014. Their upcoming self-produced album, Acrobat, is a playful foray into piano-based songwriting. 

“When our tour in spring of 2020 got cut short, we went straight home and started writing and jamming in our home studio as a way to pass the time,” Rowan Webster-Shaw explains. “A lot of the inspiration for the album came from Ben [Robertson] learning how to play piano and giving us a new texture to use in our songwriting and arrangements.”
