After their first international tour throughout Ireland, Jessica Pearson and the East Wind released their first single “Think of Me” in late 2016, which reflected a blend of country roots, bluegrass and folk with an infusion of their newly acquired Celtic sound. The band’s music has been described as Nickel Creek meets Great Big Sea. Past performances include the Calgary Stampede, Toronto Ex and Mountain Man Festival. They have also played with Hillsburn, the East Pointers, Brea Lawrenson and Murder Murder!
The band consists of lead singer and guitarist Jessica Pearson, fiddle player Maddy O’Regan and double bassist Pat Bigelow. Jessica Pearson and the East Wind’s dynamic live shows take you on a journey through their lives with heart warming harmonies, the liveliness of maritime kitchen parties, and intimate traditional melodies. The band is known for its strong audience engagement during shows and is planning their next tour and album release for 2017.
