Steven Bowers writes songs that are as hooky as they are thoughtful, with a novelist’s grasp of the human condition, and a melody junkie’s thirst for pretty sounds. Born in Newfoundland and living now on Vancouver Island, Bowers has just wrapped production of his sixth full length album, forthcoming in February 2019, produced by JUNO award-winning producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, New Pornographers, Black Mountain) and Halifax’s own Jason Mingo. His 2012 release, Beothuk Words, landed placements on TV shows such as CBC's Heartland (Season 4, Episode 1), and in independent films such as Roaming (2013 Best Feature Film Winner, Canadian Independent Film Festival). His 2008 effort Homing received significant airplay on CBC, specialty and folk radio programs across Canada, and generated nominations for Folk Recording, Songwriter and Producer of the Year from 2008 Music Nova Scotia Awards along with a JUNO Showcase and an East Coast Music Award nomination for Folk Recording of the Year. He lives in Victoria, BC, with his wife and their daughter.
