This week’s Ogle Me Some was decided the moment I saw a commercial on televeision that used Wintersleep background music and a local guy at the end planting a tree. (Vid is below)
This pic is of hometown boy, Tim d’Eon playing at the NS Music Week gala during Nov 2010. I had a seat way in the 11th roy and I’m lucky to have caught something this good as when they explode on stage, these boys in Wintersleep explode on stage.
They are making it big and in just two and half years since getting nominated for, and winning, a Juno, these guys are really rolling. They were on Letterman, if you can believe it. You can follow them on twitter for updates. (@wintersleep)
Nova Scotia has so much talent, and so much
very close to home that it’s amazing. The world is finally taking notice. Local boys like Ryan Cook are opening for Big name country acts like Dwight Yoakem. Post on Ryan next week., I think.
For your listening enjoyment, here is the video for “Weighty Ghost” by Wintersleep folllowed by the commercial that got me excited.
Way to go guys!
