The Puckhogs

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Three local songwriters – Sean Barrette, Chris Leblanc, and Brent Wohlberg – collectively known as The Puckhogs, formed in the fall of 2013 and entered their song, For the Love of the Game, in the CBC Hockey Night in Canada Song Quest to find the Next Great Canadian Hockey Song. Their underdog run to 1st Runners Up out of over 1000 Canadian artists surprised the shit out of everyone, especially them. 

But they managed to make the most out of the support they’d received from their fellow Canadians and donated all proceeds from sales of the song at their Bandcamp site - over $2000.00 - to The Human League of Sudbury, to help underprivileged kids get into organized sports. 

So, what to do next with all that fame and fortune?

Clearly they had no idea, as it took them over five years to finally release an album, which they should have called Strike While the Iron’s Hot (because irony, eh?), but didn’t. The 10-song debut, recorded by Wohlberg at his Artifact Media studios, is instead imaginatively titled The Puckhogs, because all the creativity went into the music, or some such thing.

After stealthily sneaking up on their long-suffering fans with that short five year wait, everyone is just happy the wait is over and there won't be any more turns around the sun.

Best described as Canadiana, or “music about your camp to listen to at camp”, the songs are lively, authentic, sincere, and often humourous glimpses of what it means to live in the north.  

And yes, of course the hockey song is on there.
