The Geese

For fans of:Patrick Watson, Dirty Projectors, Fiest, David Bazan, The Band
The Geese formed in the dying summer of 2008, shortly after a UFO sighting off the coast of Grand Manan Island was routinely dismissed as meteoric. The Geese are now based in Vancouver BC, Canada, where they are the respected pioneers of West Coast Danger Folk--music that is deeply rooted in the traditional ideals of folk with a childlike disregard for synonyms of ‘caution’. A cocktail that could only be served by the paradisiacal hand of British Columbia. ?? All five core members of the Geese take turns leading the group in songwriting and live performance, seamlessly trading instruments and roles between songs. By sharing leadership, the Geese are able to sustain a level of creativity and energy that is simply inimitable by other more traditionally organized groups. The inclusion of five distinct and experienced songwriters necessitates that only the pinnacle of each members work is performed by the band, resulting in set lists that play like looped victory laps.
