Biography

Sometimes the most inspiring landscapes can be found in your own backyard. For Vancouver musicians 41st and Home, inspiration comes from everyday relationships, long drives and hours spent writing together in a small, carless garage somewhere on 41st avenue.

For the greater part of 2009 the band holed themselves away in a Burnaby studio, crafting the makings of their debut album “Left In Places. ” The 8 track CD is a compilation of their past and present, taking cues from contemporary DIY folk and indie rock. The songs are layered with rich instrumentation and narrative lyrics influenced by the landscape and everyone in it; from the bittersweet “Box and the Bee”, to “Great Bear”, a driving tribute to the Canadian wilderness. In support of their work the group embarked on a cross-Canada tour, including a release party sponsored by Steamwhistle Brewing. The band was also one of the top 20 acts in the 2010 Peak Performance Project-an artist development program spearheaded by Vancouver radio station 100.5 The Peak-and continue to be played regularly on the station.

Though the current roster is fairly new, the group was started by drummer Garth Covernton and singer-songwriter Thom Kolb in mid 2008. Along with bassist and audio engineer George Knuff, the band has matured in terms of songwriting and instrumentation; experimenting with their sound in studio and at their practice space.

    Only knew about their song Gorbachev for a couple of months, then I checked out the rest of "Raised by Wolves". Wow, that's some good stuff. Modern Medicine had me from the first notes, and didn't let go.

    Don't get how Gorbachev and Wilderness Eyes dominate the recent plays - everything's golden. I'm obsessed with Summons & Modern Medicine right now.
