Hillsburn is a powerhouse. Their songs are timeless, their sound every bit as anthemic as Florence + The Machine’s, but with soaring three-part harmonies thrown in for good measure. The band has toured extensively across Canada, and in international markets like the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. They released a deluxe version of their award-winning sophomore album, The Wilder Beyond, on February 1st, 2019.
Hillsburn’s indie-rock sound draws on the songwriting focus of folk music, and combines it with a pop sensibility. Their performances are dynamic, energized, and emotive. You won’t want to miss this band that is already on its way to becoming a national treasure.
