Formed nearly two decades ago, Bedouin Soundclash debuted in 2001 with the album Root Fire. Their acclaimed sophomore release Sounding a Mosaic (2004) featuring the hit single, “When the Night Feels My Song” & produced by legendary punk-hardcore royalty Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains. This earned Bedouin Soundclash their first JUNO Award in 2006 for Best New Group. Their follow-up album, Street Gospels (2007), earned a “Pop Album of the Year” nomination & “Video of the Year” nomination for the single “Walls Fall Down” at the 2008 JUNO’s as well as three MMVA nominations for their video for “Until We Burn in the Sun” in 2009.
In 2010, the band released their fourth studio album, Light the Horizon that included the singles “Mountain Top”, “Elongo” & “Brutal Hearts”–the latter featuring French-Canadian singer-songwriter Coeur de pirate. The album was produced by legendary deep house DJ & Philadelphia-based musicologist King Britt.
Flash forward to 2018, after a seven year hiatus, band re-emerges ready to release their fifth studio album, +MASS-. The album is a powerful experience that spans two communities, recorded in New Orleans with Preservation Hall Jazz Band, & in Vancouver at the St. James Church with the children of the St. James Music Academy.
