The first single of our new EP is out now!

Today we are releasing In the City, the first single off of the Northern Window EP, recorded back in 2016 and Planet Studios, Skybarn Studio, and Sage’s home studio! The full EP is scheduled for release in 2023 and we will be releasing several singles leading-up to the launch.

This music showcases the complicity that the band had after several years of playing shows and doing recording sessions together. In the City has a driving beat inspired by an 80s influence of Sage’s and its lyrics explore an urban character’s winter lifestyle.

The track is digitally distributed by DistroKid and can be bought or streamed on all major sites:

It is also available on the Life in Winter Bandcamp page:

It was a real pleasure making this music and we hope you enjoy it!

Happy Winter Solstice (2021)!

Happy Winter Solstice! ~ Joyeux solstice d’hiver!

It’s been another intense trip around the sun and has been a difficult year for many of us.

There is also much to be thankful of for some of us on this shortest day of the year.

Whatever your situation, hang in there, be safe, and reach-out to loved ones, whether you need a helping hand or not.

Ce fut un autre voyage intense autour du soleil et une année difficile pour beaucoup d’entre nous.

Il y a aussi beaucoup de raisons d’être reconnaissants pour certains d’entre nous en ce jour le plus court de l’année.

Quelle que soit votre situation, garder espoir, soyez prudent et tendez la main à vos proches, que vous ayez besoin d’un coup de main ou non.

Moving Forward + Holding On


It’s 2020 and the times are complicated, so here’s a simple update.

Moving Forward… Sage is working on a new acoustic songwriting project under his own name. Stay tuned for more on this in the coming months.

Holding On… The Life in Winter EP is still in the works. When will it be released? We don’t know, but when it happens there will be lots of notice and a show/party.

Happy New Year!

Time Flows

Wow! Time flows and life (whether in winter or not) happens. The EP, and all of the hidden machinations that are bringing it to life, is still happening. A video for our song “In the City” is also in the works and new songs are being written. Sage was at the Folk Alliance International conference in Montréal on February 14, 2019, talking to folks about folk, as well as this specific indie folk project. Winter is in full swing! We hope you are staying warm. Stay tuned!

EP Update

It’s been a beautiful, busy summer here in Montréal (and elsewhere), but things are moving forward with our new EP. Look for more information and promo soon.
Happy Fall (almost)!

Fun show, EP Session, Ireland?, Happy Spring!

We had a great time playing at Le Ritz PDB a few Sunday’s ago. Thanks so much to everyone who made it out to help us warm-up the new tunes and get our vibe on before heading into the studio.

Our EP bed-track session is this coming Monday, March 28, 2016. 5 musicians, 5 songs, 1 day. We’re stoked!

Do you think we’d have a good time recording in Ireland in May 2017? …I do. We made it to the first round of this:

It doesn’t quite feel like it today (as the snow floats down), but it’s officially a new season. Happy Spring!LiW at Le Ritz PDB- March 13-16
