Imaginative Montreal Music: Heirloom Band

  • An imaginative mix of intimate folk music and classical instrumentation, Heirloom’s wistful songs are built from the lyrics up, and crafted with love and care. The group is made up of self-taught musicians and classically trained instrumentalists, and is influenced by artists such as Leonard Cohen, Sufjan Stevens, and Joanna Newsom. Together, their instruments create a warm, refreshing sound that is both welcoming and breathtaking, while leaving space for delicate vocals and earnest lyrics.

    Heirloom’s debut EP, The Lexicon of Accepted Ideas, was released in 2012 and was well received in and around Montreal. After completing a music video for their song, “Georgia” in the fall of 2012, Heirloom went back into the studio with Christopher Fox (Folly and the Hunter) to record their first full length album, Makeweight.
