Inspired by his personal ups and downs, Pelletier exiles himself to the shores of the Ottawa River to write most of the songs for Deep Rivers. This precious time in isolation is spent exploring his very own take on country and folk guitar whilst bearing his most intimate feelings with savage honesty. The material is then reworked and reimagined with the other band members to form the band’s singular sound.
Deep Rivers offers a combination of the intimacy of folk with the energy and the sonic palette of indie-rock. The group’s love for catchy melodies, melancholic lyrics and elaborate and subtle arrangements is reflected in their repertoire, sometimes sweet and comforting, sometimes unbridled. The band’s first EP, Part One, was released on February 3, 2017. Since its release, the band has been active on the Montreal scene and is working on a first full-length album due to be released in 2020.
