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.


“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?”

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.”

CBC Bandwidth:

New Country Rehab, Great Lake Swimmers, & Ophelia Syndrome


New Country Rehab are on tour throughout Ontario to peddle their old-school meets new-folk-rock sound. We sat around the table at their label’s world headquarters in Ottawa to talk about Ghost of Your Charms and the art of writing a good song.

Great Lake Swimmers’ last album New Wild Everywhere is nominated for a 2013 Juno Award. Hear them play tunes from it live from Glenn Gould Studio, on Bandwidth.

Hamilton jazz-folk quintet Ophelia Syndrome blurt what they really think (contrary to their band name) in a 90 Second Egg speed-interview.”

Thank-you so much to the lovely Amanda Putz of CBC Bandwidth for having us on, and what an incredible show to be a part of! We’re feeling very lucky and grateful today. xo
