A Fellow Ship from Toronto is like a folk choir for the underappreciated and overworked. They sing music that does its job of connecting with the listener well, and the many voices, both vocal and instrumental, give the short three-song EP a very big sound.

Released this past June, their debut EP makes a strong statement in just 12 minutes. The record was recorded with award winning producer Seppo Salminen and the band consists of Joe Dent, Jack Stone, Teddy Liptay, Scott Somerville, Emma Harrison, Forest Van Winkle and Ryan Johnston.

The EP begins with “Hit the Road” a nostalgic and playful take on folk form. The vocal harmonies accent the musically intriguing riffs, dancing underneath. While “Wild Tonight” has an interesting energetic, yet chill vibe to it. The powerful lyrics will have you singing, “we’re runnin’ wild tonight” for the rest of the week. The final track “In My Bones” starts off with beautiful strings followed by the soft voices the ears have become familiar with. The song is a comforting conclusion to a beautifully composed excursion into the heart of modern Canadian folk.

Like a Mumford and Sons album that has driven off the road at the exact right spot, A Fellow Ship’s EP is addicting, and (unfortunately) very short. You will run through it multiple times without even thinking. So pay the three bucks, support some great local talent and add another great new band to your listening roster!
