Acoustic Blues Folk Roots

About

Uncle Sinner is a Winnipeg-based multi-instrumentalist and singer who adapts traditional American music to suit his purposes.  The sound has variously been called gothic Americana, death country, dark folk blues or some combination thereof.  The music embraces the overlap between country and blues, sacred and secular.

Uncle Sinner's music has spread largely by word of mouth, with some videos getting as many as 100,000 hits on youtube.  After gaining some initial interest through a myspace page, Uncle Sinner's first album, "Ballads and Mental Breakdowns" was released in 2008 on the now-defunct Devil's Ruin Records.  A limited-time digital album of outtakes and demos, "A Pocketful of Glass Eyes" was released in 2014 to raise money for recording equipment.  Once some equipment was purchased, Uncle Sinner recorded his second full album, "Let the Devil In", released on his own Stomp the Bug label in 2015.  A third album, "Trouble of This World" is slowly taking shape.

Uncle Sinner has played shows locally, as well as shows in Toronto, Wisconsin and North Dakota.  He looks forward to booking more live shows in the future.
