Beautiful Disaster Available Now!

We had just written this one the last time we were at Hillside Audio. We had plans to release it in conjunction with a gig at some point. When the pandemic made that impossible we just put it aside for what we thought would be a short time until we could get back to playing live gigs. Now that that’s on the horizon, we decided we would just release the song now rather than tie it to a show that may or may not get cancelled due to events out of everyone’s control.

It was inevitable that the events of the past year would play heavily on the themes of the music we were writing, as it was, we think, for most artists. This music is definitely a product of its time. Get it at your favorite platform right now!

Beautiful Disaster
(Lyrics by Ryan Conway, Music by Wyntr © 2021)

Lost in your slumber you miss most of the day 
You are outnumbered, weak and pitiful display
You’re so afraid to be dead 
You’ve lost your life and your head

You wait in lineups for subsistence and pray 
We mask the demons and live life anyway
This song was stuck in my head 
As I lay awake in bed

"It begins so slowly and gradually, it gets to me 
You speak so softly and it lifts me up 
So peacefully..."

Sometimes the world is cruel and strange and pretend 
Watch for the signals as you get near the end
You’re so afraid to be dead 
You’ve lost your life and your head

Have faith in reason, good advice from a friend 
I’m not the devil so no need to offend
This song is stuck in my head 
As I lay awake in bed

We hope you enjoy the song. Please help us spread it around by sharing it on your socials and telling all your friends. We can’t wait to be able to play this one for you real soon!

Peace out 🙂

Rocktober 2020 update

Wyntr live at Mavericks Bar, downtown Ottawa, September 11, 2020

Hey! How the hell are ya’s!

We finally got a chance to hit a stage again back on September 11th and it felt fantastic! We got the call from our buds at PandaMonium Promotions to join Scepter, Eve of Uprise, and Feed After Midnite for the very first show at the newly renovated Mavericks Bar in downtown Ottawa and we jumped at the chance. There were some interesting challenges to deal with regarding Ottawa Public Health COVID restrictions but Brad Lake and his team worked overtime with the new management at Mavericks and got it all sorted out.

The show went incredibly well and we had an absolute blast! Huge thanks to everyone that came out, you made the evening a total success. We even got bragging rights for being the very first band to play in the re-opened venue – our sound-check was the first live music to flow through the new PA. It’s the little things…

The show was recorded by Cameron Dunn at Hillside Audio, and the recordings sound SO damn good! (It’s Cam, so of course they do). Stay tuned, we might even release a few live tracks from it, just because 🙂

Speaking of recordings, we’ve also been busy with Cam at his Hillside Audio studio recording the bed tracks for our next EP. These are killer tracks and we can’t wait to share them with you. We expect to finish up the vocals over the next few weeks and hopefully have a release ready for the holidays…fingers crossed!

On a side note, our recent single Bleed (available now on Spotify and Apple Music) will be on that EP, and we’ve sent a copy of it to the local radio station that says they support local bands, but so far we’re just getting crickets. SOOO… we have a big ask: we need you all to remind them of their mission, so to speak. Text, email, or phone in your requests for Bleed by Wyntr! We’re not naming names but you all know exactly what to do hehehe…..

Oh…one more thing: We’re ecstatic to be back at the Brass Monkey on October 23rd with our pals in Hard Labour, Feed After Midnite, and Finely Tuned Elephant for PandaMonium Promotions’ COVID SHOW #4. TIckets are available online – just head over to the PandaMonium’s COVID SHOW #4 event page on Facebook and have at it! There is limited seating available due to COVID restrictions so get yours quick! The event will also be live streamed and we’ll have more details on that soon on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

That’s it for now. See you on the 23rd at the Brass Monkey!

Wyntr is coming….

The Technology of Bleed

It’s 2020, and in order to get noticed in today’s busy digital world, you have to go high-tech. It isn’t always easy and not everyone just ‘gets’ this stuff, so we’re here to help. Check out this cool video where Bob explains some of the technology behind our new single ‘Bleed’ – available on all the digital platforms on August 13th!

“We use, like, technology…”

Our debut EP is DONE!!

It’s been a long road. Way back in March of 2018 we made our way to Hillside Audio in Ottawa to record some tracks. It was a bit of an uncertain time for us. We were excited to start working on our debut EP but we didn’t have a vocalist at the time, so the recordings would have to remain as instrumental bed tracks until we found one.

Enter Will Andrade. Will came on board that summer and started working on putting vocals down on the tracks. Through the fall and winter of 2018 we had a busy gig and rehearsal schedule and the project was temporarily put on the back burner. We finally got back to recording in the summer of 2019, getting Will’s vocals down on a few tracks, but we ended up parting ways with Will in the fall of 2019 so the EP project was back on hold yet again while we figured out how to move forward.

That’s when Ryan Conway decided (with some friendly urging) that he’d step up to the plate and took on the task of vocals on top of his guitar duties. It was a perfect fit. We spent the November and December of 2019 re-recording all the vocals – with the exception of Ryde. We felt that Will was big part of the band during a period of growth for us and it was important to us that we acknowledge that. As a result the version of Ryde that appears on the EP is the original vocal that Will recorded back in 2018.

We spent January mixing and mastering the EP and we can FINALLY say….IT’S DONE! Check out the tracks on the Music page (they’re all there!). The EP is making its way to the major online stores and should be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, Google Play and all the others shortly.

We hope you enjoy the music, it’s been a long time coming! There will be a limited run of physical CDs available in the near future as well…stay tuned!
