AE-Bridger-POP-Montreal“There is no one in St. John’s who writes music like AE Bridger… AE Bridger’s music is definitely weird, but it’s shot through with a haunting, demented brilliance and simplicity that prevents his songwriting from veering too far into the avant-garde. There should be little argument that he is St. John’s most original songwriter.”

– Lukas Wall, The Overcast

Since returning home to the foggy music mecca of St. John’s after a five-year stint living in Montreal, AE Bridger has toured Eastern Canada with St. John’s troubadour Steve Maloney, performed at POP Montreal and East Coast Music Week and opened for The Burning Hell at Lawnya Vawnya festival. Montreal music fans voted AE Bridger as one of the “Weirdest Montrealers” in CultMTL’s 2015 Readers Poll. The Overcast named AE Bridger “St. John’s Most Unique/Original Songwriter” in December 2015. AE’s fifth solo record Sculpin XO, described by Quick Before It Melts as “not the kind of record you put on for a casual listen,” was nominated for 2015 MusicNL Alternative Recording of the Year.
