Stylistic experiments among the four members of Heaps has married earnest synthetic discovery with dense analog tradition. The result is an eclectic, rhythmically swelling collection of observations in the form of their upcoming debut full length, ‘What Is Heaps’.
They recorded at Union Sound through the capable minds of Leon Taheny (Fucked Up, Owen Pallett, Weaves) and James Bunton (Donovan Woods, For Esmé, Vivek Shraya). The foundations were crafted in a series of escapes: suburban Halifax bedrooms, rural Quebecois disconnection, renovated Michigan church seclusion and Dale Morningstar’s Gas Station on Toronto Island. Stylistic experiments among the four members has married earnest synthetic discovery with dense analog tradition. The result is an eclectic, rhythmically swelling collection of observations, conversations and questions as an observer in uncertainty.
Heaps, in another melodic lifetime, were known as The Kents.
In that collective, they were featured in on Hockey Night In Canada, MLB’s World Series, 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, Canada’s Walk Of Fame Emerging Artist and earned radio support from CBC, including George Stroumboulopoulos. Through their travels, they shared stages with Sloan, The Sheepdogs, The Trews, The Strumbellas and Hollerado. Their final release Within Waves elevated them beyond 5-million Spotify streams.

Today we’re announcing that both our April 3 show at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto and our April 4th show in Sudbury have been postponed. While we’re bummed that we can’t share our new sounds with you sooner, we feel it is imperative to treat the current pandemic with the respect that the health-sciences community is calling for. As we attempt to self-isolate as much as possible, we’re urging you to do the same. We, as a community, have the opportunity to give our front-line health workers a fighting chance and we owe it to them, and those vulnerable to this virus, to do so. Please stay in, try a new recipe, write songs, call your Nana, call Tanner, rest. We’ll have lots to share with you soon, along with new dates for these shows. ❤️ Take care, Tanner, Luke, Freddy & Warren Credit: @athingforcharlie
