Biography

Warming Rochester

2007-Present
“Warming Rochester” is a group of guys from Woodstock, Ontario, that like making music that attracts listeners who are tired of flash and ingenuousness. Named after a neighbor’s cat called Rochester, that was never let in during the winter. They couldn’t bare to let Rochester freeze, so he was let in to the band room to keep warm and sleep in a wooden bowl while the band created their first project “The Miner’s Canary”. There is a wide range of opinions about what type of music is resemblant to “Warming Rochester”. The most common is that ‘it sounds like it should be in movies’. If you were to ask them yourself, they would be most proud of what they don’t sound like. “Warming Rochester” is currently working on a second project, and playing in clubs speckled across Southwestern Ontario.

“The Miner’s Canary” was made possible by the players Drew Chalkley, Mike Ring, Mike Schneider and Jeff Sibley. Recorded at The House of Miracles in London, Ontario by Justin Nace and Andy Magoffin. Their mission was to tell a story through music, inspired by the incandescent relationship that miner’s would cohere with their canaries.

Some of the influencing bands that have stimulated “Warming Rochester” are The Band, Bjork, Do Make Say Think, Explosions in the Sky, Fugazi, Godspeed You! Black Emporer, Mono (Japan), No Means No, Pixies, Polvo, Rachel’s, Sebadoh, Sigur Ros, A Silver Mt. Zion, and Sonic Youth.
