Formed in 2003 as Friday Morning's Regret, the Canadian alt-country boys now known as The Wooden Sky have gone through a few name changes and a lot of experimentation to get their sound. The original trio consisted of Gavin Gardiner on vocals, bassist Andrew Wyatt and guitarist Chris Cocca, (who left the band in 2007 following their first full-length EP 'When Lost At Sea') and the band has since expanded a great deal. It's current members stand at Gavin Gardiner, Andrew Wyatt, Simon Walker, Anissa Hart, Peter Krpan and Andrew Kekewich and their collective musical talents range all way through cello and harmonica, along with the more conventional instruments.
This transformation has turned The Wooden Sky into a very different beast - they are out to use their own cumulative will to change the face of folk-rock, alt-country and any other genre they can think of. Black Box seem to have done a good job of hooking them up too, they've worked recently with Howard Bilerman (The Arcade Fire), Heather Kirby (Ohbijou) and Debra Jean Creelman (formerly of Mother Mother).
They've certainly set themselves a high bar here, but they seem to be relishing the challenge. Long may it continue.
