St.Arnaud (Alberta, Canada)

Indie, Folk

By the release of his debut album, St.Arnaud was an old hand on the folk festival circuit, a University graduate in Neuroscience, accidental overdose survivor, and at a loss for what to do next. In the Fall of 2017, his bandmate, friend, and at times antagonist, was hit by a train, dissolving his trio, North of Here. To honour the loss, St.Arnaud rewrote the collection, previously titled The Cost of Living. Harkening back to ‘60s protest folk, Ian’s beaming, clever lyrics belay more cerebral themes behind sha-la-las. Simply orchestrated, impeccably composed, St.Arnaud tackles themes of loss and resilience with sardonic humour and heart-on-the-sleeve, puppy-love honesty.
