Folly and The Hunter is an indie folk band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Catchy melodies, multiple harmonies and a subtly crafted mix of acoustic instruments blend to create warm and full compositions. Folly and the Hunter bases its sound in the American folk tradition and pulls inspiration from contemporary indie and post-rock trends, resulting in pop songs that are accessible, yet carry a significant level of emotional and artistic depth.
Nick Vallee, the lyricists and vocalist, was born and raised in Vancouver Canada, and moved to Montreal to finish university, but also came to immerse himself in the vibrant local music scene. Laurie Torres, a native Montrealer, has played in bands since she was a teenager, and is proficient in a plethora of instruments including piano, guitar, drums and banjo. Christopher Fox, who grew up in England, also plays a variety of instruments and has been a long time active sound engineer and music producer.
Fox, Torres and Vallee only started playing together in 2010, and found themselves emersed in a rare creative and personal compatibility. Only a few months later, they started recording their songs, which led to a surprisingly rich creative process.
Their first release √¢‚Ç¨ÀúResidents√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ in hand, Folly and the Hunter is proceeding toward big √¢‚Ç¨ÀúDIY√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ plans : self promotion and distribution, touring, showcasing, and much more. Fellow musicians will be joining them on stage in the next stage of the band√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s evolution.
