The East Pointers have been touring Australia consistently since their debut album in 2015 – they have deep connections here - and their roof-raising live show is inspired by the continent’s audiences. “Before we came to Australia we were a sit-down band: gigs were sit down with a few enthusiastic dancers. The first time we played in Australia everybody stood up and ran to the front of the room and started dancing in that way that’s totally specific to Australian festival audiences (involves all the limbs and all the directions). ” Tim is still using a shaker that an audience member passed to him at that first Australian show

Redefining modern folk with chart-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic groove, trance-like trad breakdowns and three-part harmonies, this Canadian fiddle/banjo/guitar trio light a path for a new generation of music lovers who don’t care for labels.

JUNO Award-winners, The East Pointers, are redefining the ever-evolving genre – modern folk – with Billboard-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic groove, trance-like trad breakdowns and three-part harmonies. Already internationally acknowledged as musical trailblazers, their new album "Yours To Break" captures the furious energy of their live shows and push the boundaries of East Coast folk while lighting a path for a new generation of music lovers.

"What We Leave Behind" was one of the international standout albums of 2017, nominated for the ‘Traditional Roots Album of the Year’ at the 2018 JUNO Awards and attracting over five million streams on Spotify. In the short time between their 2015 JUNO Award-winning debut Secret Victory and their 2019 album Yours To Break, the band has performed over 500 shows in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the UK, Europe, Mexico, the USA, and Canada.
