Woodpigeon was coined in 2005 to shelter a revolving cast of Mark Hamilton’s musician comrades as they coalesced around his first songs. Since then, five full-length albums and at least a dozen other recordings have been released into the wild under the Woodpigeon banner.
Meet a genre bending six-piece from the rain-soaked left hand corner of Canada, a city called Vancouver. They sing in French and English. They rock out on trumpets and accordions. They waltz when they need to and they’re as absorbing as you’d hope a winter mitten would be. Since 2005, they’ve been soothing souls in a way that Chicken Soup could only dream of. Watching them live is like peering into the playroom of six best friends, swapping instruments whenever they please and letting love drift like dandelion seeds.
