Innes Wilson’s Seaview EP was made a reality while touring the east coast in April 2018, with the help of two of Canada’s most dedicated indie bands WHOOP-Szo and Construction & Destruction.
You can listen to the first single to “From Now to Forever” below!
The songs took their shape during recording sessions at The Quarantine, Construction & Destruction’s living room studio in the beautiful coast side hamlet of Port Greville N.S., overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Working closely with the members of WHOOP-Szo, simple folk tunes grew into powerful grunge pop tracks – styled after the early nineties sounds that Innes has always been a purveyor of. The music is reminiscent of the early years of Innes Wilson’s career, but strengthened by many more years of songwriting and by a backline from touring veterans. Seaview EP is raw and genuine. The four tracks travel with Innes as he navigates his life, with nature guiding his thoughts helping him express his journey of heartache and joy.
