Juno award winners Wintersleep plays what NOW magazine describes as “pop-infused space rock.” Their single “Amerika,” from their 2016 album, The Great Detachment, hit number one on the Canadian Rock/Alt Rock charts and won the Indie Award for Single of the Year. They’re also known by many for their haunting single “Weighty Ghost” which received much airplay after its release in 2007. Wintersleep has shared a stage with many greats including opening for Paul McCartney on his 2009 Canadian tour. Made up of vocalist/guitarist Paul Murphy, drummer Loel Campbell, guitarist Tim D’eon, bassist Mike Bigelow, and keyboardist Jon Samuel, the band has released five full length albums. Exclaim! described the band as sounding “assured and energized on each arrangement” on their latest, The Great Detachment, “leading to some of their most evocative songs to date.” Fun fact: Wintersleep was also the most requested band in an R&S audience survey undertaken last year.
