Loon Choir mixes textured guitar, synth, and violin hooks, with a groovy backline, and powerful choral-esque vocals, and brings it all together with their socially conscious lyrics about political injustice.
At their show at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Aug. 4, you can see first hand how these musicians deliver a live set backed full of energy, spontaneity, sincerity, and above all, good times listening to good music.
Loon Choir has made its presence felt even across the ocean, with 2011 single “Bricks” being released in the UK on an international compilation with only two Canadian bands.
The band has been raising its profile nationwide too, especially following the release of their 2nd full-length album “Fire Poems” with the producing/engineering genius of James Bunton in May 2012. Hit songs All Boats Don’t Rise and Nowhere to Go have been among CBC favourites, with the former hitting #2 on the R3-30. The band was also shortlisted for an R3 Bucky Award for “rookie of the year” in 2012.
All the recorded music aside, the live Loon Choir experience is what makes the ultimate difference. The energy oozing out of the catchy synth and guitar riffs, the transcendent harmony of male and female vocals and the loud and groovy beats are sure to get any crowd going.
The loons’ history of playing significant events such as Pop Montreal, NXNE, JUNOfest and Ottawa Bluesfest, as well as touring all over Ontario and as far east as Sidney, NB and everything in between is a testimony to their guarantee to deliver spectacular outbursts of energy to all their performances.
