Biography

Canada became a hotbed for indie rock in the early 2000s, with multiple bands finding their footing in cities like Montreal and Ottawa before spreading their music to other areas. The Acorn differentiated itself from the pack by using acoustic instruments and conceptual themes, creating a sound that owed as much to experimental folk as rock & roll. Although formed by songwriter Rolf Klausener as a one-man recording project, the Acorn had grown into a full band by the time Glory Hope Mountain appeared in 2007. Based on the life of Klausener’s Honduran-born mother, Gloria Esperanza Montoya, the album helped position the Acorn as another popular Canadian export, and the group followed its release with No Ghost in 2010.
