Event Description

On October 14th, The Wise Hall & Lounge presents David Simard's full-band debut to Vancouver audiences in celebration of the launch of his sophomore full-length, The Heavy Wait.


The lyrical and musical makeup of The Heavy Wait is an effortless combination of gilded European elegance and small-town noir. Simard and his band recorded most of the album in a charged, live-off-the-floor session in Arcade Fire’s old “Petite Eglise” studio. They dug in hard and deep to produce a quiet intensity so palpable and persistent that the album builds in strength with each passing track. Waves of horns and lap steel guitar, sparsely placed piano, and haunting clarinet lines, recorded later in Vancouver, rush to complement the live performances. “The Heavy Wait” was the band’s chosen mantra during that first session and it persisted until the final note was captured.

Born in a small fishing village in northern British Columbia, David Simard has always imbued his work with a sense of space and a hint of nostalgia. Simard’s arrangements evoke the landscapes he’s studied and lived in, while his lyrics intimately relate the stories of characters met and imagined, along with more than a few of his own experiences.
