Lots and lots of Album updates:

Our latest blog posts:

“Almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk too… only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.” –Joe Versus the Volcano. To read more, click here.

If a picture speaks a thousand words, part two.Then what do these say? Life really is short. Have fun.

Long hours do strange things to people. Sometimes they put on wigs.

Inspiration comes from many places. It can also lead you many places… with that in mind, here is what we have been up to in our latest sessions.

“When you fight for what you deserve it will inspire many” –My crazy friend Eric. To read more about The Hope, please click here.

Sometimes things get heavy, and that’s alright. Be the light.

Also, there is a little sneak peek video that we posted a few days ago for “Not Tonight“.

Life is all about the little pleasures, and The Wood Brothers. To read more about how the album is coming along, please click here.

Also, in case you missed it, there are a couple new videos up in the “musings” section of our website. Deanna by request and The Basement Choir.

Until next time. Xo.

It’s only $5?!

“Today’s post is written by Deanna Wells, of the Canadian band Ophelia Syndrome.  She writes about her experience with Stage-it from the perspective of a not-so-internet-savvy computer user. We think this could be a great post for anyone who is sill considering giving Stage-it a try…especially for a last minute Christmas concert. Yea?”

We owe a huge thank-you to everyone who helped us reach our target on Sellaband.

We feel lucky everyday to have crossed paths with each and every one of you. We are so excited to get to work on the new album and to make you all proud.

Josh said it best, we thought the best way for us to thank-you would be with a song. Funny story, we couldn’t fit everyone in the shot, and so we got creative…

We are in pre-production now, and we be sharing photos and video along the way with you all. We know that we couldn’t have done any of this without you.


Josh, Trina, Andrew, and Deanna.

50K Music Mag:

I (Deanna) was thrilled to have been asked by Mario of 50K to write a DIY Article about our very first online gig. Thank-you for the lovely introduction written by Mario Putzer:

“In the middle of September Ophelia Syndrome thrilled their fans with an online gig via Stageit. Deanna, singer of the band, shares the experience of this gig with all musicians who’ve already thought about performing online straight to their fans.”
