Amy & Grant McIsac/WB 

 

e are Winnie Brave, a husband and wife Americana/roots duo from Ontario, on a cross country tour in our 1976 Winnebago. We're just wrapping up four months in the US before crossing back into Canada for another six months of Canadian shows.

 

Winnie Brave, a porch stompiní Americana/Roots duo comprised of husband-and-wife team Amy (vocals/guitar) and Brad (bass/percussion/keys) McIsaac. Established in 2013 and currently touring full time in their 1976 Winnebago; they record and perform a varied and unique style of countrified folk and roots music inspired equally by hazy front porch folk songs and full-blown, high-energy barnburners.



From the beginning... 
As the fall of 2012 approached, inspiration for change struck and a decision was made to bet the farm and take a chance on a life less ordinary. The house was sold, jobs were left behind and an old towable trailer became the new way of life. Packing up only the essentials - two dogs, two guitars, two amplifiers and their two favorite coffee mugs, the duo hit the road and travelled over 7000kms in three months throughout the southern United States, in-search of musical inspiration.

After returning to Ontario in the late spring of 2013, the duo took to the studio and in a weekend recorded there self-titled debut album. Featuring a collection of songs inspired by their recent journey, they would become the foundation for a new direction. 

In January 2016 the duo embark on their first cross-country American tour. For more info, visit www.winniebrave.com
