The Hedgerow Folk was formed out of a local church body in Auburn, Alabama in 2012 where Amanda Hammett and Jon Myles were leading worship together. The two realized very quickly that there was something special about the combination of their voices and began to pursue the idea of recording some original music. Jon had been in a few previous bands but was sensing the Lord leading him to begin to write in a new kind of way that centered around quiet reflection and being in an intimate relationship with Christ. Bryant Hains and Jon had previously played together in another band for several years and had really begun to have a mutual respect for each other as artists, recognizing that each one had something unique to offer when it came to creating music. After some prayer and consideration, Jon, … Read More »

When you hear the word “Mother,” what comes to mind? The word in itself is strong, forceful, and commanding, while bringing about a life giving, nurturing feeling. This group of four from the New York metropolitan area encompasses the above and much more. From the stage, Mother is in charge, much like in the household. The energy and confidence is what drives each performance of their heavy, groove-driven aural fix. Meanwhile, the songs will scoop you up by the hips and hold you in place searching for more once the last note settles.
Formed in the spring of 2011, these newborns have grown fast enough to fulfill the duties of their moniker in a very short time. Upon asking, the guys might tell you they met on E-Harmony, or in a Guatemalan jail cell. The truth: the perfect combination … Read More »

Affection, belonging, loss and nostalgia: four themes that encompass the lyrically driven music of The Written Years. These subjects are constantly questioned throughout the band’s songs, delivered passionately and honestly through Wade Ouellet’s melancholic acid-tinged vocals, Kane Enders’ unexpectedly triumphant drum lines and Kodie Krogh’s melodic and memorable guitar hooks.
Together, these three people are able to create a sound not currently heard in the Vancouver music scene, merging together a unique combination of indie alt. rock, traditional folk, post rock influences. Described as “Winter Music”, the result of all this manages to feel both incredibly intimate and uncomfortably isolating and is backed by a highly energetic live show – made possible by a revolving cast of friends, helping to make each one a completely different experience.
After six years in the making, The Written Years released their debut album on January … Read More »
