A perfect blend of contemporary pop and indie rock. Constant Season merges the sound of dramatic, beautifully arranged piano ballads with synthesized, guitar driven, beat-heavy songs that gets the crowd hooked within seconds. Constant Season's live show leaves the crowd in awe and wanting more.

Biography

Constant Season hails from Calgary, Alberta, a beautiful western Canadian city known for its world famous Calgary Stampede and folk rock scene. Unfortunately, we are the farthest thing from a folk rock band. Panic and fear can be seen in the eyes of the sound technicians in our city as we set up for our show and inform them that we in fact, have a little known instrument called a "keyboard." Essentially, we are the worst enemy of sound technicians in Calgary, but we'll take that as a compliment.

Forming in late 2006, we made our live show debut at a "Battle of the Bands," at Cowboys Night Club in June 2007, in which we ended up winning and walking away with a handsome cash prize. Our most memorable moment so far was when we were kicked off stage two songs into a show (that we were headlining) because we weren't "folk-rock" enough for the crowd.

We released our debut E.P., "Midnight Lines," on April 4th 2009 at The Gateway here in Calgary. We filled the bar with 350+ people, nearly reaching capacity. We were told that the bar had not been that full since The Arcade Fire played there a few years back. It was probably one of the most amazing, fulfilling and memorable experiences of our lives.

Most recently, we were invited to play VIRGIN FESTIVAL Calgary on August 8th 2009. We headlined the second stage at 7pm, just before Pearl Jam took the main stage at 8pm to end the evening. Backstage, we hung out with the likes of Wintersleep, Arkells, K-OS and Billy Talent. Probably the coolest experience of our lives.

Star and the Lover

Written By: Constant Season

THE STAR AND THE LOVER
Painting with the air and the
oPen water / Sailing, looking
through the lenS of an abSent
Shutter / but you Silence the
cloudS in the foreground / aS
your dancing with the Sound in
the diStance / and you SeParate
the Star from the lover / aS your
clinging to the armS of the
urSa major / the Sky iS falling
down / the Sky iS falling down /
the Sky iS falling down when
the lightS go out / you never
See the ground, frequencieS
will Pound / you never hear the
Sound through a glaSS cut out /
Painting with the air and the
oPen water / keeP an oPen SPace,
lightS moving in, in flutterS /
and your SleePing with the
fear of conSiStence / aS your
wreStling with your faithleSS
commitment / and you SeParate
the Strike from the fighter /
aS your treading through the
ringS in your loverS water /
clinging to the armS of the urSa
major / clinging to the armS of a
diStant Stranger / bathing in the
fallS of the urSa major / you’ll
never See the ground when the
lightS go out / you’ll never
hear the Sound through a glaSS
cut out / you’ll never Smell her
Sin when the Scent caveS in / but
the lightS go out, the Sky comeS
down / frequencieS will Pound
when the lightS go out / you’ll
never hear the Sound through a
glaSS cut out / laSerS with a grin
when the Scent caveS in /but the
lightS go out, the Sky comeS
down / and you SeParate the Star
from the lover / aS your clinging
to the armS of another / and you
SeParate the Star from the lover /
that you reach to with the armS
of another
