Pop Indie Rock Folk Vancouver
In January 2010, Wintercoast came into existence, and what originally started as a folk duo transformed into a full-fledged band. Within a few short months, the band was already playing shows and participating in the IGNITE 2011 program. As a result of that, they obtained a few hours of free recording time at the Hive Creative Labs and decided to pay out of their own pocket to finish the EP with the wonderful Jesse Gander.

Wintercoast. Artist Bio

In January 2010, Wintercoast came into existence, and what originally started as a folk duo transformed into a full-fledged band. Within a few short months, the band was already playing shows and participating in the IGNITE 2011 program. As a result of that, they obtained a few hours of free recording time at the Hive Creative Labs and decided to pay out of their own pocket to finish the EP with the wonderful Jesse Gander. With changes to the line-up happening throughout the year, and an EP (Trees, Homes & Better Places) under their belt, the band steadily grew as a whole until finally coming into a sound of their own.

Wintercoast currently consists of four members, each bringing their own background and expertise to the table. They mix pounding drums with delicate guitar work and intense bass lines to create a delicious alternative folk/rock blend topped off by vocal harmonies. Their songs have garnered a reputation among the fans for having a darker tone and post-mortem subject matter (i.e. they’re almost all about ghosts), but the band has displayed an ability to write the kind of upbeat summer folk tunes that Vancouver is known to love.

Wintercoast is an indie/folk band from Vancouver made up of Andrei Dumitrescu (guitar/piano/vocals), Sylvie Bridgman (vocals), Samuel Chow (guitar/violin), and Cory Bernard (drums). Having played shows at The Roxy, Biltmore Cabaret, Astoria Pub, Railway Club, and many other fantastic venues, the band feels ready to take on the world - or at least the rest of Canada.
