"I walked out of the venue with the same feeling of euphoria that I can only compare to the feeling I had while leaving the Broken Social Scene concert I attended a few years back." Fred Sorrell, West & Crooked (Feb. 6, 2012)
"the unquiet dead are on a musical quest to attain pure enlightenment. This cast of 10 musicians incorporate many styles into blues-infused Americana teeming with elements of folk, world music, gospel and psychedelia bolstered by a communal soul-hippie spirit-brimming with celestial harmonies, down-home guitars, and percussion-driven grooves. Essentially rooted in minimalist bluesy psych-folk channeled through the musical alchemy of a collective, the unquiet dead both embrace a revelatory spirit and an aura of mystery, creating music that’s strikingly original alongside a newfound sense of the past." Toronto music blogger Lonely Vagabond (Dec. 5, 2011)
"This is just PHENOMENAL. "Rescue Me" may be my favourite song of 2011." Tom Lucier, Phog Lounge (CBC Radio 3 Searchlight Winner, Best Live Music Venue in Canada)
Indie folk/world/blues from Windsor, Ontario, featuring various past and present members of such esteemed Windsor acts as The Golden Hands Before God, Magic Hall of Mirrors, Two For The Cascade and Surdaster! Since the band's debut in the fall of 2011, they've shared the stage with Elliott BROOD, Yukon Blonde, The Sunparlour Players, Great Bloomers, Wool on Wolves, The Schomberg Fair and The Unsettlers, as well as being selected to perform at the 2012 & 2013 Canadian Music Week, North By Northwest (NXNW) and SCENE Festival.
They recently released their debut CD, tales of the unquiet dead: book one, and have begun touring Southern Ontario, with electric performances from their hometown of Windsor to Toronto, Hamilton and Peterborough, with more cities in sight as they take their blue collar hometown convictions on the road.
Together, they are combining their talents and experience to form a new musical experience that utilizes the raw honesty of the blues, the introspective curiosity of folk, and the emotionally charged souls of various world rhythms to create a sound that is undeniably unique.
