Wooden Horsemen

Vancouver's Wooden Horsemen have gone through a full transformation since their introduction to the scene as a folk 3-piece in 2013. Singers Steven Beddall and Missy Cross's woven harmonies remain at the core of the band's sound, however the foundation has shifted from delicate acoustic strings to a brassy, electric 7-piece blues-rock outfit.

Their most recent album, Past Lives, stands as a fiery testament to the intimate relationship between music and spirituality. Influenced by Alan Lomax's 'American Patchwork' series, tracks such as "I've Been Changed" and "You Better Mind" aim to harness the raw spirit of gospel while maintaining the band's signature modern rock n' roll sound.  Swampy, sweaty and downright dirty blues mix with ethereal harmonies and a blazing horn section, resulting in a gritty, powerful, and ultimately unforgettable live experience.
