THE WEATHER STATION

The Weather Station is the project of Canadian songwriter Tamara Lindeman; folk music based in classic elements of songcraft – melody, tension, meaning. On the acclaimed All Of It Was Mine, and the followupWhat Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know, Lindeman established herself as a songwriter's songwriter, earning accolades for her delicate, carefully worded verse, filled with double meanings, complex metaphors, and rich details of the everyday.
The much anticipated third album entitled Loyalty was born out of collaboration between Lindeman & Afie Jurvanen, a.k.a. Bahamas, at legendary La Frette studio just outside of Paris, France. On the record, Tamara's humble immediacy gains clarity & confidence through Afie's decisive influence and the high fidelity production of Robbie Lackritz (Feist). The record is set for worldwide release in May 2015 on Outside Music (Canada) and Paradise Of Bachelors (US/Europe).
The Weather Station has toured North America with acts like Bahamas, Basia Bulat, and Timber Timbre; recently, she toured Japan. She is also in demand as collaborator, appearing on new records by Doug Paisley (No Quarter), Field Report (Partisan), Daniel Romano (New West/ You've Changed), and Siskiyou (Constellation) among others. A co-write with Steven Lambke (The Constantines) garnered a 2013 SOCAN songwriting award nomination, and her work has drawn accolades from Pitchfork, The Globe and Mail, Exclaim, The Toronto Star, and many more.
