The Wilderness of Manitoba prefers to characterize itself as an evolving entity. The band’s last album, Between Colours, was as far-reaching as anything in its catalogue. “When a band isn’t changing, it’s not growing,” says guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist Will Whitwham. From the band’s inception, it has redefined itself with every album; from Hymns of Love and Spirits through When You Left The Fire, Island of Echoes and The Leslieville Sessions. The evolution of their sound has run the gamut from four part harmonies and chamber folk to folk rock and their more cinematic arrangements.
The Wilderness of Manitoba’s previous album, Between Colours, showcased an explosion of strength with a more rhythmic bottom end and all the studio had to offer. The expanded instrumentation and layered guitars combined to create an adventurous sonic exploration. The band including Will Whitwham, Raven Shields (Vocals/Guitar), Tavo Diez De Bonilla (Bass/Vocals) and Mike Brushey (Drums/Vocals) is finishing up its fifth album for release in the spring of 2017.
