Wintersleep are a Canadian indie rock band from Halifax, Nova Scotia. What started out as a side-project, eventually turned into one of the most popularlive shows in Atlantic Canada. Wintersleep came together in 2001 and is composed of Loel Campbell (drums), Paul Murphy (guitar/vocals), Tim D’eon(guitar/keyboards), Mike Bigelow (keyboards ‘05-‘06/bass guitar), Jon Samuel (keyboards/backing vocals/guitar) and former member Jud Haynes (bassguitar).

Wintersleep are a part of Dependent Music, a music label/collective that began in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1994. They have four CD releases, the first self-titled, the second untitled, their third Welcome to the Night Sky, and their most recent one New Inheritors, released May 17, 2010. Wintersleephave a large and faithful following due to their extensive touring throughout Canada and Europe.

Their music style is rooted in indie rock and has ambient and occasional shoegaze elements. Performances have been described as “entirely honest” and“deeply moving” with “captivating ambiance”. While playing live, the band attempts to make the listener as much a part of the music as the band themselvesby encouraging everyone to sing along.

They were nominated for two Juno Awards of 2008 and took home one of them: Alternative Album of the Year, and New Group of the Year (which they won). « hide
