Bry Webb grew up in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. He was the singer/guitarist in The Constantines from 1999 to 2010. His work with The Constantines was released on the reputable independent labels Sub Pop, Arts & Crafts, Three Gut, and Blue Fog.

In 2010, Bry stopped touring with The Cons to focus on his family. He and his wife, contemporary dancer, Katie Ewald, relocated from Montreal to his former home of Guelph, ON. They celebrated the arrival of their son, Asa, in early 2011.

Bry began working as Programming Coordinator for Guelph’s community radio station, CFRU, in the summer of 2010, in order to help develop a resource for local musicians and activists. Every Thursday, he hosts the radio program, MessengerBird, which produces hour-long, improvised home recordings with guest musicians from the Guelph area and beyond.

For many years, Bry has been making quieter songs, outside of the bombast of The Constantines. He has performed many of these songs live, opening for Oakley Hall, Al Tuck, Christine Fellows and Dan Mangan, among others, and appeared at Sappyfest and the Dawson City Music Festival. His songs Positive People and Big Smoke were featured in the 2007 feature film, This Beautiful City. The latter was nominated for a Genie Award (Canada’s Grammys) for Best Original Song in 2009. In May 2010, he traveled to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands, BC), to record a site-specific score for the film project and Discovery Channel series The National Parks Project with Jim Guthrie, Sarah Harmer, and filmmaker Scott Smith, which was released, along with a companion soundtrack, in early 2011.

In November 2011, Bry Webb will release a collection of nine songs on the independent label, Idee Fixe. The recordings were made in three days with engineer/producer Jeff McMurrich (Jennifer Castle, Sandro Perri, Owen Pallet). Bry, along with lap steel player Rich Burnett, pedal steel player Mike Brooks, and upright bassist Tyler Belluz, recorded the album almost entirely live off the floor, playing together in one large room at 6 Nassau in Toronto. The album is eerie, minimal, and organic. It’s called Provider.

Bry was recently invited to appear as guest vocalist on the first song on Feist’s new album, Metals. In November and December of 2011, he will be performing live, as the opening act for Feist on her upcoming Canadian tour.
