My Father’s Son, an indie folk group with roots in London and Toronto, ON, melds together intricate lyrics with the richness of simplified, acoustic sound. Singer/songwriter Mark Kulmala is joined by Paul Meadows (Uisca Beatha, The Beauties) on the recording of their first full length album ‘Heart of Wood’. The album’s themes of fleeting innocence, love’s lost and found, determination, and the simple beauty of the landscape are sure to resonate with listeners. Having played in varying bands, in a variety of genres, over the years this endeavour sees a paired down amalgamation of lived experiences, both personal and musical, poetically creating emotionally complex but subdued, reflective songs. An air of storytelling colours the music with sentimental and wholly relatable verses that immerse the audience in the beauty of shared experiences. From festivals, to large halls, to living rooms — My Father’s Son has shared the stage with some of Canada’s best artists, including: Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, Tim Baker, Dylan Menzie, Joey Landreth, Craig Cardiff, NQ Arbuckle, Zachary Lucky, Belle Star, SloCan Ramblers, Carl Dixon (April Wine, The Guess Who), Skydiggers and Damhnait Doyle.
