My Father’s Son, an indie folk group with roots in London, ON and Montreal, QC, melds together intricate lyrics with the richness of simplified, acoustic sound.
Singer/songwriter Mark Kulmala is joined by Paul Meadows (Uisca Beatha, The Beauties) on the recording of their first full length album ‘Heart of Wood’. Having played in varying bands, in a variety of genres, over the years this endeavour sees a paired down amalgamation of lived experiences, both personal and musical, poetically creating emotionally complex but subdued, reflective songs.
An air of storytelling colours the music with sentimental and wholly relatable verses that immerse the audience in the beauty of shared experiences.
They are currently recording their sophomore album with Paul Pfisterer (The Beauties. RHYE) at Freckle Farm Studios in Mono, Ontario
This past year they toured extensively around Ontario opening for:
