Canadian Rock Band, The Webster Project Has Had a Marvelous 2019!

Canadian rock and roll band The Webster Project is a 5-piece group from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Consisting of Mike Webster, Isabelle Forest, Dean Rigaux, Scott McNabb, and Edgar Ozollins this group combines the sounds of rock and bluegrass through the use of such instruments as mandolin and harmonica. The band truly defines the meaning of what being in a band is all about. All members contribute equally to the entire creative process from songwriting and song arrangement to the arrangement of vocal harmonies. They all feel the same passion and dedication to The Webster Project and take their music and each other seriously.

Their debut EP Misunderstood was released this past summer along with an exciting and infrequent opportunity presenting itself. After receiving numerous requests from fans for a physical EP, The Webster Project partnered with Sunrise Records to sell their CD in stores. As a result, this led to in-store appearances at various Sunrise Records locations and multiple live shows.

The group also released a music video this year for their track "Like I Loved You Then". Produced by Warren Nightingale of Playmaker Motion Productions, it features footage from one of their live shows at The Royal George Hotel in their hometown of Winnipeg. What’s next for The Webster Project? In the coming new year, the 5 piece plan to focus on releasing their first full-length album. Of this Mike Webster says "the challenge for us this time out, and this is a very fortunate situation to be in, will be deciding what songs will make it on the album. We have close to 50 to choose from so that will likely be the most daunting task".

Thanks for joining us here at BuzzMusic! How did the partnership with Sunrise Records come about? 

Thank you for having us again! Our drummer Scott McNabb was visiting Sunrise Records last summer and struck up a conversation with the manager and discovered they were willing to stock our EP so we jumped at the chance. It opens the door for so many promotional opportunities.
