Awakeneers’ music centres around honest vocals sweetened with multi-part harmonies and supported by rich acoustic instrumentation. The nomadic band of multi-instrumentalist songwriters — most of whom are siblings — segues seamlessly from a foot-stomping fiddle tune to a hip-hop guide to mindfulness; from hilarious satire to heart-wrenching and conscience-raising eco-ballads; to soaring inspirational harmonies of love and hope. These seasoned minstrels weave a genre-bending blend of acoustic positivity that orbits elliptically around the idea of folk music.
The official mission of the band is to embody light, love, and truth — for the benefit of all beings. Their songwriting shines a light on life's big questions, celebrating the goodness of humanity and the miracle of Life on Earth.
Since their humble early days in a dirt floored cabin, the Awakeneers have toured Canada by van and sailboat — as well as the US and Europe — playing venues from street busking, seaside docks, schools, homeless shelters, folk clubs, meditation and yoga centres, peace conferences, folk festivals, and for congregations of all faiths.
