Winnie Brave: A soulful composite of roots and folk, a two-man-band of epic sonic proportions. This husband and wife, internationally-touring duo travel in their 1976 Winnebago playing over 150 shows a year.
From the beginning…
As the fall of 2012 approached, inspiration for change struck and a decision was made to bet the farm and take a chance on a life less ordinary. The house was sold, jobs were left behind and an old towable trailer became the new way of life. Packing up only the essentials – two dogs, two guitars, two amplifiers and their two favorite coffee mugs, the duo hit the road and travelled over 7000kms in three months throughout the southern United States, in-search of musical inspiration.
After returning to Ontario in the late spring of 2013, the duo took to the studio and in a weekend recorded there self-titled debut album. Featuring a collection of songs inspired by their recent journey, they would become the foundation for a new direction.
In January 2016 the duo embarked on a four-month cross country American tour, travelling over 11,000 miles and playing more than 40 shows in 13 states. They are currently on the Canadian West coast playing shows throughout British Columbia and Alberta.
