ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ketch Harbour Wolves hail from across Ontario while fostering a deep connection to Nova Scotia where in 2003 the band's predecessor, The Flying Buttresses, was forged in the small coastal town of Ketch Harbour. After almost two years of intense musical experimentation, near destitution, and enough stories for a lifetime of songs, singer Jonathan Tyrrell and drummer Brian Urbanik packed their van and drove the seventeen-hundred kilometres home to Ontario. It was back on familiar ground that they would begin to lay the foundations for what would become Ketch Harbour Wolves.

Tyrrell began by calling on childhood friend and Toronto indie rock veteran Scott Winter to join them on bass guitar. It soon became clear that the trio's musical ambitions far exceeded the capacities of a 3 piece outfit. It wasn't until 6 months later that the final two pieces of the puzzle would reveal themselves in Rome, Italy, where Tyrrell teamed up with singer songwriter Liam Brown and keyboard/saxophonist Kristjan Bergey for a spontaneous performance in the basement of a Roman bistro. The quintet then came together in the summer of 2006 to play an opening spot in Toronto for east coast favorites Caledonia. Ketch Harbour Wolves delivered an explosive performance, propelled by a capacity crowd that refused to let them leave the stage. The Wolves were as impressed as the audience – clearly they were on to something.

In almost no time the band has developed a feverishly loyal following in Toronto and beyond. They’ve headlined such legendary venues as The Horseshoe Tavern and The El Mocambo, consistently drawing passionate crowds and filling bars from wall to wall. Ketch Harbour Wolves are quickly becoming staples on independent radio from Nova Scotia to B.C., and most recently showcased at the 2007 North by Northeast Festival to a packed house.

This is the first chapter in the story of a band on fire.
