The brainchild of Benjamin Doerksen, 'GARDEN PARTY' is a Southern-Ontarian, Canadiana, Alt-Folk-Rock group. Grown out of majestically supportive friendships, inordinately well-attended house concerts, unrelentingly compassionate community, really good bonfires, offensively bad commutes, sweet, old fashioned collaboration and gardening. The group is made up of an ever-rotating roster of diverse, local collaborators and contributors including Bradley McClure, Julie Neff, Tom John, Rose Brokenshire, Cameron MacDonald, Patrick Xavier, David Poulin and Evan McCosham.

'CAROLINIANA' is the first of a 3 part mini-album series to make its debut! Named after eastern Ontario's deciduous woodland and it's role in Doerken's childhood nostalgia, 'CAROLINIANA' will be released independently as a limited "field lyric guide" booklet. Each field-guide will contain beautiful collaborative artwork, plantable wild seed paper download cards, album lyrics (so we can all sing along), and a very limited-edition collectors enamel pin. You can expect CAROLINIANA'S counterparts to be released in the spring of 2020 and 2021, with larger ambitions to follow!

Keep your ears and eyes out wherever you listen to music, there are a couple of fresh singles headed your way in the weeks leading up to the big party!
