Two Bears North Short Info

Sophie Heppell and Melissa Walker have spent the last seven years cultivating the Edmonton based band Two Bears North. Heppell's melodic sense, Walker's incomparable groove and the addition of Nich Davies on drums have made the band unstoppable. Winner of the "People's Choice" Award at the 2014 Edmonton Music Awards their debut album, Comeocean, released December 2013, was nominated for an additional five EMA's and was named the number one album in Edmonton for 2013 by gigcity.ca.

Two Bears North has an impressive live show filled with energy and passion with danceable upbeat songs. They were one of five Alberta bands chosen to showcase for the Alberta Music Breakout West Showcase and were seen by the head of Devilduck Records based out of Hamburg, Germany. After signing with the Devil, they will be releasing Comeocean in Europe with European tours to follow.

Two Bears North has toured extensively throughout Western Canada playing clubs and festivals including CMW 2014, Alberta Focus Showcase for Breakout West 2014, Sasquatch Gathering Festival 2014, Taste of Edmonton Festival 2014, Sweetwater 905 Festival 2014, and the Edmonton Music Awards Gala 2014.

Rokline Magazine describes Two Bears North as "Tight, punchy, pop-rock replete with melodic hooks, intricate rhythms and some inexplicable/intangible quality that makes it all so utterly charming." What Rokline refers to as "some inexplicable/intangible quality" is the band's unbelievable work ethic, passion for their music, and their sincere desire to inspire and move people. Two Bears North is currently working on their second album, corresponding videos, and preparing for European and Canadian tours.
