Hamilton, ON

Athanase, pronounced ath-an-ouse, is a modern folk-rock band from Hamilton, whose music “is as eternal as their name is unique” - Y108 CJXY- FM. The band bends genres, combining folk, alternative, 50’s rock n roll, and a little country to put together a simultaneously emotional and energetic experience.

The band’s first EP “Times Like These” saw them get radio play and open for Irish international headliners - Hermitage Green. They're second release Between II Shores was released in the Spring of 2020 so with a touring schedule cut short, they redirected efforts to at-home recording, releasing the single "Too Late to Follow" in the summer and are actively working on their 3rd release which can be expected in the spring of 2021.

Their influences range from folk giants the likes of Jason Isbell, The Decemberists, and Bright Eyes, to Canadian hero’s The Tragically Hip, alt rockers Thrice, and even pop icon Taylor Swift.
