100 mile house will release their 3rd full length album, Wait With Me, in March 2013. This highly anticipated release is the follow up to their award winning 2011 release, Hollow Ponds. Wait With Me is full of their trademark lyrically driven roots tunes that have gained this band notable momentum in the Canadian music scene and beyond. Throughout 2013, the band will be touring extensively in support of their new release.
The Edmonton-based husband and wife duo of Peter Stone and Denise MacKay, along with multi-instrumentalist Scott Zubot, have spent the last year playing shows and festivals in support of Hollow Ponds. The album was nominated for a 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for ‘Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year’, won the Edmonton Music Award for ‘Folk/Roots Album of the Year 2012’ and was included in CBC's 'Key of A - Best of 2011' and CKUA's 'Top 100 of 2011'. The track ‘Better, Still’ won the Calgary Folk Festival songwriting contest Grand Prize which led to them performing at the festival in 2012.
Some career highlights include performances at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics (in association with the Alberta Foundation for the Arts), the Calgary Folk Club and the Canmore Folk Festival as well as showcasing at the 2011 Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, Tennessee. A live recording of their show at the Communitea Café in Canmore, Alberta is available on CBC Radio 2’s Concerts On Demand.
Using a wide palette of instruments, from a 100 year old pump organ to a make shift choir of family and friends, the new album is the work of a band that have put all they have into every note. With a timeless sound full of sincerity, ‘hollow ponds’ holds nothing back.
