During the lengthy recording of Written Years’ forthcoming release, Wade Ouellet (vocalist and primary songwriter) experienced a sudden and unexplained speech loss - causing him to refrain from speaking for months.
Through the upward climb in getting his voice back, Ouellet began working in near-isolation on a batch of new material. The lyrics reflected his struggle to find a sense of belonging, which eventually led the band to throw out all the material they had recorded up to that point.
The Vancouver-based quartet, also composed of Kane Enders, Brian Dyck, and Alex Richardson, enlisted producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Said The Whale) to help them achieve this new direction. Their debut single, Lost In You Now, was released fresh into 2018 and a DIY video/pseudo-documentary was filmed over a 4-day shoot. The film centers around an eccentric character named Kevin and his own struggle to find acceptance in doing what he loves. His resistance to the norm and to criticism embodied a lot of the same trials the band experienced in creating their new material.
Written Years have recently begun working with Phase Management in building a team of like-minded individuals and planning the release of new material.
