Harvest Breed

What: Americana/Rock
Where: Sherbrooke, QC
CM Issue: November – December 2012

Sherbrooke, QC’s Harvest Breed play a completely enjoyable blend of folk, rock, and Americana that fans of the Avett Brothers and other contemporary ambassadors of the sound should have no problem getting into.

They’ve been making heads turn in their home province since the release of Everything Changes earlier this year, an effort that earned them a nomination for Best Folk Album of the Year at Quebec’s Indie Music Awards. Since the album’s release, Harvest Breed has also supported the album on stages shared with acts such as My Morning Jacket, Beirut, Dan Mangan, Patrick Watson, and more. While Montreal might be known as the primary exporter of music from Quebec, it’s clear that there are thoughtful and progressive songs being written in other corners of the province as well.
