This week I was contacted by Wade Ouellet of the band Harvard Business to be featured here on For Evan, Forever Ago. I am happy he did because their music is very chill & easy to listen to. Nothing about their music is in your face and doesn't necessarily command your complete attention but I think thats what I like about it. They are that lo-fi band that I would have playing while I'm grilling in the backyard with friends. Get to know them more, here is their bio:
Sometime in 2006, after leaving his hometown of Kelowna, Wade Ouellet began writing the beginnings of what would eventually become Beyond Tree Lines; a journey questioning home, loss, childhood and love. Over the past year, Kane Enders and Michael Cumblidge have become essential pieces of Harvard Business and have taken part in the development of the band's unnerving sound, which combines an unexpected array of indie rock, alternative and modern folk influences.
The collection of songs found within the band's live show and on the upcoming debut album sit somewhere between incredibly intimate and uncomfortably isolating while both making you need a hug and giving you a hug at the same time. This unique concept is evident within the self-titled digital release, which acts as a small glimpse into the demoing of the album.
Beyond Tree Lines will be released in early 2012, six years after it began, and will be followed by a slough of live shows, spanning across British Columbia.
