Meet The Devil

IMG_7647``

Devil In The Wood Shack, based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, is a six-piece, indie-folk band with unapologetic honesty, more guts than glory and more intrigue than a well told story. Raw and untamed; a hurricane that hates the rain; a sound straight from hell riding on drunken angel wings. With western, gypsy, punk and blues influences and members from opposite ends of the country, we come together to make a sound like no other.

It all started in St. Catharines, Ontario, with a couple of weirdos–Joshua Wood and Wesley Coderre. Within a small town, inside of a small garage, by a wood burning stove, the birth of Devil In The Wood Shack began. With a background of punk bands, jazz school, skateboarding and religious repression, they created a sound too unique to categorize and too catchy not to dance to.

The band originally formed in 2011 as a three-piece with Joshua Wood on lead vocals and guitar, Wesley Coderre on guitar, mouth harp and vocals, and Rory Troughton on drums/percussion. In 2012, the band added sisters Thalia Apostolopolous on banjo and vocals and Justine Apostolopolous on keys and cello, along with Conrad Shynkar on stand-up bass.

Devil in the Wood Shack has since emerged as one of Vancouver’s indie-folk pioneers. But for them, it’s all about doing what they’ve always done–writing pop songs for weirdos, anthems for the lost and lonely, and bare-knuckle ballads for the underdogs. Now, four years after its birth, the band is releasing what some might call its ‘greatest hits’. The Self-Titled masterpiece is packed with 10 hard-hitting crowd favourites such as ‘You Keep Me Running’, ‘Maybe It Will Be Alright’ and ‘Lead’. In June 2016, this family-of-a-band will be touring across Canada to bring you the original sounds of Devil In The Wood Shack.

In the beginning of 2013 three new members were brought in, Thalia on vocals, and her sibling Justine Marie on keys and Cello, Conrad on stand up bass and trumpet.
