Braden Lam seems to mend every situation with his delivery of feel-good hooks and warm vocals. The folk-pop songwriter from Halifax, NS builds upon influences such as Hey Rosetta! and Dallas Green to create the refreshing and upbeat anthems of his life.
His sophomore EP Driftwood People (September 2018) is an intimate look at the social disconnect of life on the road and the reconciliation of lost relationships. Growing up in rural Ontario, Braden’s honest lyrics reflect the many landscapes of his upbringing. He made his debut in 2016 with The Coast EP before settling upon Nova Scotia’s salty shores; where he has since been inspired and shaped by the allure of the ocean.
The full band, Braden Lam & The Driftwood People, recently completed a tour across Atlantic Canada promoting the new album.The Driftwood People, consists of Brett Chivari (drums), Nick Pothier (bass, vocals), and Jonathan MacKenzie (keys).
