THE ONCE + SPECIAL GUESTS
Their fans have been waiting patiently for a year for new music, and with We Win Some We Lose, The Once have delivered a deep, thoughtful and exciting new collection of songs.
A modern indie folk trio from Newfoundland, The Once has collected a trio of Canadian Folk Music Awards, numerous ECMA awards, was named Artist of the Year by the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council. They have earned not one, but two JUNO nominations for best Roots/Traditional album, the most recent in acknowledgement of Departures (2014). While originally known for its haunting interpretations of traditional music, The Once has at long last uncovered a sound that truly represents their inner artistry.
“I think we finally know what The Once sounds like,” says Phil Churchill, “and with that knowledge comes a freedom we would not let ourselves have before.” The Once’s newest EP, We Win Some We Lose, perfectly encapsulates the trio’s newfound artistic freedom and songwriting voice.
