Canada
Soul/pop
Harea Band is one of the freshest sounding bands to come out of Ottawa these days – one that is reviving classic soul and disco, but with a modern twist. The band has garnered a solid reputation for putting on high-energy live shows and for crafting hauntingly beautiful soundscapes that weave between the band’s thoughtful and provocative songwriting.
The band recently landed a gig at this summer’s Ottawa Bluesfest, and will play alongside some of North America’s top acts including LCD Soundsystem, Muse and Pink, among others. Harea Band has also headlined Wakefield, Quebec’s iconic Black Sheep Inn, Toronto’s infamous Horseshoe Tavern, as well as the Ottawa International Jazz Festival and Ottawa City Folk Festival. The band’s two EPs have made them an instant local favourite with their groovy, danceable, infectious sonic flare. Harea Band also opened for Juno nominee Tanika Charles at Ottawa’s JunoFest this Spring.
