about

Ophelia Syndrome is a unique blend of rock, folk, and jazz with a pop sensibility. Hailing from Hamilton, Cambridge, and Toronto ON, OS formed in the winter of 2002, when Trina Nadeau (cello) and Deanna Wells (vocals, and keyboards) met during their studies in the Mohawk College Music Performance program. In 2007 Adrian McFarlane, and Josh Kohler filled out the lineup on drums, bass, and backing vocals.

In 2008, the band entered Catherine North Studios to record their Shades of Grey EP with the late Dan Achen and Michael Chambers. In the vein of the singer-songwriter, Shades of Grey showcased the band’s rare instrumentation, powerful vocals, and seamless ability to traverse and blend genres into their own sound. The EP was released May 2009 and spent 4 weeks on C101 Top 30. OS embarked on several small tours of Southern Ontario in support of the EP, visiting Ottawa, Kingston, Peterborough, Kitchener, Guelph, and Waterloo, as well as playing regular shows in Hamilton, Oakville, and Toronto. OS also appeared at The Cambridge Arts Festival and as a headliner at The Art of Sound Festival in 2010. Due to the success of Shades of Grey, OS successfully fan-funded their debut full length album All Things Forgotten through Sellband.com, raising approximately $16,000 in support of the album. The band is a regular top 5 artist on sellaband.com, allowing OS to gain fans globally in Brazil, The UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and most notably the Netherlands. With hundreds of new expectant fans, 2 years of refined new material, and the addition of Andrew Barbisan on guitar, lap steel, and backing vocals, OS approached All Things Forgotten as a chance to reinvent their experimental sound to deliver a truly memorable album. Blending male and female vocal harmonies, vintage organ, Wurlitzer, and Rhodes keyboards, strings, lap steel, and even muted trumpet performed by Loretta Hale on “Long Wait”, All Things Forgotten has a haunting and timeless texture. Recorded and co-produced by Michael Chambers at Catherine North, the album was released in Europe in the autumn of 2011, and was followed by the band’s first European tour in the Summer of 2012.

about

Ophelia Syndrome Hamilton, Ontario

Ophelia Syndrome are a bunch of weirdoes who make noise together. They try to blend various keyed instruments, cello, bass, drums, guitar, vocals, and whatever else they can find to hit, pluck, strum or occasionally blow. The result is their own unique blend of “indie” music, a term they are fairly certain has become ambiguous enough. ... more
