Bio"The Lovely Feathers started out, as most of many do, as a band in a bedroom in an old apartment in Montreal. In this bedroom resided Mark Kupfert and it was his idea to play a few informal or impromptu shows on the campus of McGill University. These ideas gained some small sort of popularity and support, and started to become things like shows at local venues and competitions around the city. And these things seemed to be going well and nicely. And one day, as is common, they were approached. This particular approach, however, resulted in a series of both interconnected and tangential events which led them to where they are today. They are as follows: The Feathers signed to Equator Records/ Emi and released their first album 'Hind Hind Legs' in 2005. Shortly thereafter they embarked on a 63 day North American tour opening for Metric. They proceeded to play several more North American tours accompanying Dr. Dog, the Spinto Band, and another time, Man Man. They released their second album 'Fantasy of the Lot' on Sparks/EMI in 2009, and toured again, this time with the Rural Alberta Advantage, and then solo. Amidst all this, they performed at SXSW, POP Montreal, NXNE and MTV Live; they enjoyed college radio success (with both albums charting in North America) and even licensed some of their songs to television shows such as 'One Tree Hill', 'Death Valley' and 'Vice's guide to travel'. After a brief hiatus, the Lovely Feathers are finishing off a new album, with a planned release for August/September 2011
