biographical info

Ottawa's Loon Choir formed in 2009 and have released two albums: Expansion Forces (2010) and Fire Poems (2012). Both records were produced by James Bunton of Ohbijou. The Loon Choir sound is based around catchy hooks, poetic lyrics, dark undertones and a general sense of urgency.

Loon Choir recently released an animated video for Bug, a single off the forthcoming third album, due out in the fall of 2015. More details to follow.

Some highlights thus far include being shortlisted for a 2012 CBC R3 Bucky Award for Best New Artist and having the single All Boats Don't Rise reach #2 on the CBC R3-30. Loon Choir has played notable events like POP Montreal, NXNE, JUNOfest and Ottawa's Bluesfest, and has toured across Canada, from Vancouver to Halifax.
