The Wolfe continues to rack up the wins.

The three-piece alternative rock band from Prince Albert recently won the Best out of Province Band award at the Toronto Independent Music Awards last Friday.

It’s the latest accolade for the group, which placed in the Top four in CBC Searchlight 2017, and won two awards in PANow’s Best of the Best award. They’re also up for Young Performer of the Year Canadian Folk Music Award, which will be announced in November.

“It’s been amazing,” said bassist/vocalist Siobhan Bayda.

“We’ve been super busy, but it’s really rewarding because we’ve been putting in so much work, so much time, working at it every day. It’s amazing to get a reward for our hard work.”

Bayda is joined in the band by guitarist/vocalist Gabrielle Giroux and drummer Tesa Thompson. They recently returned from a whirlwind summer tour of western Canada.

“it was crazy, but it was a good kind of crazy,” Bayda said. “We were really busy, playing shows, playing festivals meeting people, getting new contacts, it was kind of a whirlwind of music and fun people.”

Bayda said the reception was always positive. Turnout varied from city to city, but people seemed to enjoy the music.

The CBC Searchlight experience from earlier this year has also been a positive experience for the band, raising their profile and bringing on new fans nationwide.

“There’s more activity on our social media,” Bayda said.
