Burlington, ON-based indie-rock band, Oh Geronimo has just released their album, The Sled. We were happy to chat with the band in a brand new segment of Five Questions With. We hope you find out something about Oh Geronimo that you didn’t know before, and if you’re able to catch one of their upcoming shows, it’s highly recommended.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
HellOh Geronimo, everybody. We hope you’re enjoying the first slice of 2018 as much as we are.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
We make propulsive and emotionally resonant music-art about personal and shared experiences. Honesty and meaning is what we aim to accomplish above all. Our approach to writing always varies but the songs are always a group effort. We love to do it and we’ll never stop doing it.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?

We freefall into the moment and lay it all out onstage – audience members are encouraged to join us in doing so. An Oh Geronimo show is about feeling things, being inclusive and most importantly: doing your best.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
‘Mountains’ is what we enjoy playing most right now. It’s about never giving up while remaining true to who you are, which feels like a nice message to pass on!
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
We’re listening to a lot of Elementals, Texas King, The Weakerthans, The Almighty Rhombus, The Penske File, Alex Mason, Long Range Hustle, and Greg Mashinter. We love going to watch live music just as much as playing so we’re always finding new songs and sounds to sink our teeth into.
