Focused and fearless, Quiet Parade presents introspective, bleeding-heart folk-rock shrouded in a little fog. Building on a foundation of nostalgia and longing, the Halifax-based band revels in winding guitar lines, fading choruses, and words that go straight for the heart. Quiet Parade’s breakout single, We Were Here, was featured heavily on CBC Radio 2, claiming a spot on their Top 20 charts for five weeks. In addition to a 2017 East Coast Music Award nomination for Folk Recording of the Year, their self-titled album earned Quiet Parade a Music Nova Scotia Award in 2016 for Alternative Album of the Year.

As the winter deepens, the band readies their French-language debut – an EP titled Nous Étions Icitte. Featuring four translated songs that originally appeared (in English) on the band’s award-winning self-titled album, the record is due out on February 16, 2018 via Acadian Embassy.
