Biography

Halifax, Canada (2001 – present)

Wintersleep are a Canadian band from Halifax, Nova Scotia. What started out as a side-project, eventually turned into one of the most popular live shows in Atlantic Canada. Wintersleep came together in 2001 and is composed of Loel Campbell (drums), Paul Murphy (guitar/vocals), Tim D’eon (guitar/keyboards), Mike Bigelow (keyboards ‘05-‘06/bass guitar), Jon Samuel (keyboards/backing vocals/guitar) and former member Jud Haynes (bass guitar).

Wintersleep are a part of Dependent Music, a music label/collective that began in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1994. They have three CD releases, the first self-titled, the second untitled, and their newest release Welcome To The Night Sky released in October, 2007. Wintersleep have a large and faithful following due to their extensive touring throughout Canada and Europe.

Their music style is rooted in and has and occasional elements. Performances have been described as “entirely honest” and “deeply moving” with “captivating ambiance”. While playing live, the band attempts to make the listener as much a part of the music as the band themselves by encouraging everyone to sing along.

They were nominated for two Juno Awards of 2008 and took home one of them: Alternative Album of the Year, and New Group of the Year (which they won).

    Love these guys. First discovered them at a small venue in 2005 and I've been in love with their music ever since.

    Really solid band. Love the tunes and got to see them live opening for Frightened Rabbit in Toronto at the Phoenix Concert Theatre. I've got terrible pics and my thoughts on my blog: http://www.oneintenwords.com/2013/04/frightened-rabbit-and-wintersleep-rock.html

    Hey, I'm selling two tickets for Wintersleep's show in Münster tomorrow (May 4th) for the bargain price of 15€ because I can't go there myself. If anybody's interested, send me a message.

    Welcome to the Night Sky is a highly underrated album. One of the best albums.

    This band defines a fucking generation as far as I'm concerned. And it's a damn shame the show in boston got canceled.

    Hello Hum is decent, but it and New Inheritors are disappointing compared to the greatness of Welcome to the Night Sky and Untitled.

    New album was a bit disappointing. Not bad in any way, but not that amazing either. 6/10
