Hoist

Hoist

BandAlternativeJam

Winnipeg trio, indy music without the eyeliner, probably taller than you are. Sounds like Barenaked Ladies, Dave Matthews Band, and Incubus.

Biography

Hoist consists of three friends from Winnipeg, Canada who think that third person biographies are pretentious.

We've been playing together for a few years, and friends for a few more. Forming in 2005 from fragments of other projects, our trio meshed immediately because of our complementary musical personalities.

Our influences can largely be summed to "life", including aurally but often otherwise. Our sound is heavily influenced by the likes of Barenaked Ladies, Dave Matthews Band, and Incubus.

As of January 2011 we’ve independently released 3 albums, the two most recent of which were written, recorded, mixed and designed exclusively by the three of us. You can find our music for sale online internationally, with distribution through more than 20 networks including iTunes in 6 countries. We are also in regular rotation on Galaxie Radio.
