Northern Quarter hail from the mountain town of Canmore. The group formed in 2017, and their varied influences have created a genre-spanning band.
Fort Mcmurray born singer and lyricist Kerry Hunter weaves beautiful imagery with fascinating, sometimes stark tales about her own experiences. Starting as a solo artist, the evolution to band songs has been a thrilling journey.
Carlos Nadeau's unique guitar style and expressive solo abilities leave their mark on all he touches.
Backing this up are Wendy Crewe on bass, and Dave Crewe on drums and samples. Samples are played on a drum pad, opening up an extra sonic dimension. This can be heard on 'Searching For Freedom', an orchestral, angelic opening combined with Carlos' wonderful guitar riff and arpeggiated synthesizers make this a band favourite.
2020 was a challenging year for all, but the band has gone from strength to strength, the pinnacle of which was winning the YYC Music 'Group Of The Year' award, which was a highly unexpected achievement.
The upcoming album features interesting collaborations, most notably Tim ('Shred Kelly' - banjo on 'Rocky Mountain Song'), and Geoff ('Deep Dark Woods' - organ on 'Fighting For You'). This aspect is one that Dave as producer finds exciting - "It's amazing to hear all these people come together without meeting each other and sound like a cohesive unit. Some of the players are in Canada, some are in the UK, but all of them have extreme talent and we're blessed to work with them."
