North of Here

North of Here

North of Here is an Americana / Folk group made up of Luke Jansen (vocals, banjo, bass), Ian St. Arnaud (vocals, mandolin), and Will Holowaychuk (vocals, percussion). There is both history and new life in North of Here’s folk sound. Shaped by their grandparents’ worn-out Gordon Lightfoot and Leonard Cohen records, they also cite contemporaries such as The Barr Brothers and The Milk Carton Kids as influences on their songwriting. Hidden behind the sunny disposition of acoustic guitar, banjo, and mandolin, are lyrics with weight and self-reflective depth.




Spark
