41st and Home formed in 2008 when Garth Covernton and Thom Kolb found a cello in Garth’s garage. Neither knew how to play it, but that wasn’t the point: the point was the fascination with all things epic and orchestral it inspired. In early 2011 the band sequestered themselves to work on a new EP. The result, in just over a month (when their first album took a year!), is a 6 song collection evoking sonic comparisons to Arcade Fire, The National and Broken Social Scene, all while maintaining their own unique flavor and sound. Selected as one of BC’s Top 20 in the 2012 Peak Performance Project, 41st and Home will be the official First Band Ever to play EPIC Festival.
