“Like the bear in which he adopted his name, Kermode’s music is soft, and peaceful at times, but one blink and you’re dealing with a massive, roaring, wild beast. Both live and in his production, Kermode puts heavier emphasis on songwriting and unique sound design to take his listener on an epic journey.”
Kermode’s story is one of my favorite to come out of the Canada Day weekend. An hour’s drive down a loggers road out into the middle of nowhere, I met Kermode at Eden Prime, which I found out was his first music festival ever. On the second night, by complete chance, one of the DJs played a song Kermode had produced in his set!
His music has a lot of variations in focus and style so I recommend you give a listen to his earlier EP Emit Time (and grab the free download while you’re there, too!)
