The Long War were selected as the winner of the 2017 CBC Searchlight Contest with their song Breathe In Breathe Out. Their recent success has garnered them the chance to perform at the 2017 CBC Music Festival in Toronto, Banff Performance In The Park as well as the reopening of Ottawa’s National Art Center as part of the Canada 150 Celebrations. Their debut album Landscapes was recorded at Metalworks. The Long War have been featured on several radio and television spots including CBC q with Tom Power, CBC Music First Play Live and Canadian Musician Magazine.
The Indie group has been building a buzz in the music scene with their haunting harmonies all the while capturing a modern Canadian sound - singing about what they know - their home country. Vocalist Jarrett Lee's inspiration can largely be attributed to the landscapes and environments that have influenced him throughout his life. Building out from this foundation Belleville native Chad Gilmour (vocals/guitars), Jessica Lee (vocals/keys) and Neil Williamson (vocals/drums) provide vocal support through their harmonies bringing Jarrett’s lyrical imagery to life and defining the music of The Long War.
