Initially formed as the bedroom project of singer / songwriter / guitarist Gavin Gardiner, Toronto-based country-folk / indie rock collective the Wooden Sky have grown exponentially throughout the years — both physically and figuratively. Spanning three records, several EPs, countless well-received tours, and dozens of collaborators, the group’s development over the past decade can be used as a measuring stick in the Southern Ontario scene they’ve helped to curate and sustain. Their reverence-turned-subversion of accepted notions in Americana-based music have made them tireless innovators, consistently finding new wrinkles within a genre as broad as it seems ageless.
