Mark Kulmala of My Father’s Son

My Father’s Son, an indie folk group with roots in London, Ontario and Montreal, Québec, melds together intricate lyrics with the richness of simplified, acoustic sound. Singer/songwriter Mark Kulmala is joined by Paul Meadows (Uisca Beatha, The Beauties) on the recording of their first full length album Heart of Wood. The album’s themes of fleeting innocence, loves lost and found, determination, and the simple beauty of the landscape are sure to resonate with listeners. Having played in multiple bands in a variety of genres over the years, this endeavour sees a pared-down amalgamation of lived experiences, both personal and musical that poetically creates emotionally complex but subdued, reflective songs. An air of storytelling colours the music with sentimental and wholly relatable verses that immerse the audience in the beauty of shared experiences.

My Father’s Son are currently recording their sophomore album with Paul Pfisterer (The Beauties, Laser, RHYE) at Freckles Farm Studio in Mono, Ontario. The album features Broken Social Scene’s Lisa Lobsinger and is being mixed by Dean Nelson, who previously worked as Beck’s day-to-day audio engineer. Broken Social Scene and Stars FOH Engineer, Marty Kinack, is mastering the record.
