Biography

Out of the foggy banks of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Rain Over St. Ambrose emerges with Overton Window – an album that combines powerful melodies with good old-fashioned rock n’ roll fun, and highlights the band’s knack for churning out pop-rock anthems.

Whether it’s the catchy chorus of the EP’s single, “Campfires,” the captivating sing-alongs of “Chemtrails of Happiness,” or the eerie synth-hook of the album’s title track, Overton Window reverberates with the energy and excitement of a band poised to escape from their rural fringes into the heart of the city.

Recorded over a weekend at Codapop Studios in Halifax, NS, the band’s sophomore album will be released in November to coincide with hometown showcase during Nova Scotia Music Week.

The inception of Rain Over St. Ambrose is a remarkable one. A week after Curtis LeBlanc told his son Cory he’d rather see him be the frontman in a band than stuck behind the drums for the rest of his life, he suffered a heart attack and died. The next day, Cory LeBlanc (once the drummer for Jon McKiel, Ruby Jean & The Thoughtful Bees, and others) packed up his kit and picked up his guitar.

Assembling a band with his brother, Curt, and some of Yarmouth’s best up-and-coming musicians, Cory christened Rain Over St. Ambrose – a testament to the weather on the day of their father’s funeral – and began writing songs.

The band released their first self-titled EP in February, 2011 as a free download via Acadian Embassy and garnered initial praise for its “crunchy guitars, honest lyrics and memorable hooks” (IndieMusicFilter), its “sing-along friendly choruses” (Herohill), and “classic rock patterns The Hold Steady” (Round Letters).
