"My discovery of the year was Oliver Forest" Duke Eatmon / CBC Montreal Music Columnist
"Oliver Forest captivated my attention in 2019 when I saw them for the first time during their performance at the Apéros FEQ in Quebec city. I was impressed by their solid presence, their charisma and their obvious talent. With well-written songs, bright melodies and beautiful vocal harmonies, "Some Things You Just Can’t Let Go Of" leaves us imbued with a sweet melancholy." - Catherine Jalbert / Former Programmer for Festival d’Été de Québec
