It’s only $5?!

April 3

This Thursday April 3rd we are very excited to be playing with The DoneFors. We are all really big fans of this band, and we encourage you to check them out if you get a chance! The incredibly talented Marie Avery is also playing, and she always brings it live! Also, we will be joined on stage by The Basement choir. They had their debut a couple of weeks ago, and they were lovely!

3 April 2014. Hamilton, Ontario. This ain’t Hollywood. With Marie Avery and The DoneFors. Doors open at 8 pm, show starts at 9 pm. $5. Facebook event page.

Also, we sent out our April newsletter with an album sneak peek… if you want to hear it, click here!




Hello there. I hope that everyone is well, and that you are getting back into the swing of things after the holiday’s. We wanted to give you all a little album update. We are currently in pre-production for the next couple weeks, and things are really going great! We are very happy to be adding to our team with this album, and are excited to announce that we are wokring with producer, engineer, and musician extraordinaire Kori Pop. As many of you know, Kori is my best friend, and so to say we’re having  fun is an understatement. Also, we will be working with the incredibly talented Dan Rodrigues, Michael Chambers, and Alycia Wells for later aspects of the album. We are so excited to be able to show you all what we have been working on.

As promised, we have a couple fun pics and a seriously questionable video inserted below.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Ladies and Gentlemen: Kori Pop.

Kori and Deanna

During our session last night, I was not so sure about this cat picture.


Also, because we wanted to show you just how serious, and focused we are, we have a short video of the new invention that I, Dee created. It’s called the Bun Shaker (patent pending). I just inserted the shaker into my hair bun so that my hands were free to play the keys. I don’t mean to brag, but I think I am onto something huge.

Just kidding. I am aware how ridiculous this is…


“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.”
