Wake the Bear''s latest album, Player Piano, is based on and inspired by Kurt Vonnegut''s 1952 novel of the same name. The songs bring story lines and characters into relatable accounts of new machines, broken dreams, bourbon schemes and revolt.

A humble, dreamy lushness is crafted with acoustic guitars, keys, synths, layered voices and heart-swelling string sounds, all tied together by Cunningham’s emotive, vivacious lead vocals, which have the kind of effortless elasticity that only truly great singers can pull off. (CityBeat, October 2005)

From aliens, chickens and surviving the 80s – to a dog, a god, and a good many drinks – Wake the Bear wears his heart on his sleeve – without the cheese. Up-beat poppers. Low-key stoppers. All held together with stuck-in-your-head glue.
