Manitoba Music:

The members of The Wild Homes have spent the last decade crossing musical paths, but now with the mission to deliver their own musical message, they have reunited in their hometown of Winnipeg, Canada. Fronted by the transcendent Brittany Barber, with songs penned by bassist Jessica Rodewald, this group of musicians blend a heavy mix of synthesizers and emotive vocals with full-bodied guitar, drums and bass. The Wild Homes are excited to bring their take on synth-pop to new audiences.

We are:
Brittany Barber: Vocals
Bert Johnson: Keys
Allan Suban: Drums
Jessica Rodewald: Bass
Corey Zacharias: Guitar
Tethered together by three brothers, (Daniel, John and Matthew Baron), Winnipeg’s “FINN" (the Barons, Cody Iwasiuk and Darren Hebner) finds the common ground between "down-home" folk and indie-rock. At a very early age, the Barons were exposed to the honesty and raw musicality of Bluegrass, a background that now inspires the band's experimentation with instrumentation, harmony and hymn-like chord progressions. However, while the five-piece band hints at this nostalgic genre, their music departs from its simplicity and is best compared to artists such as Hey Rosetta, Band of Horses, Local Natives and Half Moon Run.

Founded in September of 2013, FINN has taken strides to establish themselves in Winnipeg's music community. In January 2014, FINN was excited to win a spot in Winnipeg's the "Uniter-fiver," an event put on by one of Winnipeg's most reputable cultural newspapers the Uniter. Soon after, FINN's debut single "Cold Comfort" received airplay on CBC Radio 2 and, in April 2014, FINN began to record their five-song EP. During their recording process, they had the privilege of working with great artists and musicians including members of Winnipeg's Dirty Catfish Brass Band and Canadian singer/songwriter Sierra Noble.
