Golden Feather is a project that was started by Steve Kiely and Brad Germain, inspired by their love of bands that like to jam and take their listeners on a musical journey. The two have been close friends for years, but had just finally gotten to writing music together in the early part of 2019. What started out as a weekly hang for the two in Brad’s basement recording demos, quickly turned into them having to find more like minded musicians to help them bring their musical ideas to life.
The group was set to play its first show in March 2020 when the global pandemic hit, suddenly ending all hopes of live performance. Brad and Steve, along with bassist Ronson and guitarist Chris Wheeler worked on the songs remotely and ended up recording their debut album entitled Light On Water, which was released in November 2020. Not long after the release of Light On Water, Gareth Inkster joined the group on keys to complete the original, definitive lineup.
Golden Feather has since released a follow up album “In Air”, releasing each of the four songs as singles, once monthly for four consecutive months, in early 2022, followed by the EP “Now & Then” released on Sonic Unyon Records in September of 2022.
Chris Wheeler and the band amicably parted ways in January of 2023, and not long after, part-time guest saxophonist Murray Heaton joined the band as a full-time member.
Seeing the band live is where you get to really see what they’re all about. It’s very much a two way transfer of energy between the crowd and the stage. They’re not afraid to explore their music and try new things out, especially in front of a live audience. Golden Feather shows are full of dancing, sing alongs, and good vibes, something that has to be experienced for yourself to believe. Come watch the Feather Fly!
"The Mark T Band, Canada's #1 tribute to the music of Jerry Garcia, makes their first appearance at The Sanctuary! Featuring the incomparable Mark Thackway on guitar, the Mark T Band will jam out Jerry's best from both the Jerry Garcia Band and his formidable repertoire with the Grateful Dead!"
