The Wooden Sky are a Canadian indie folk band based in Toronto, Ontario.
The band originated after lead singer Gavin Gardiner, of Morden, Manitoba, wrote songs for a school project while attending Ryerson University. He formed the band with bassist Andrew Wyatt and drummer Chris Cocca, who has left the band. They originally formed as Friday Morning's Regret, releasing the song "The Wooden Sky" on the Friends in Bellwoods compilation album, but opted to change the band's name to The Wooden Sky before releasing their debut album.
Their debut album, released in 2007, is When Lost at Sea. Band members now include Gardiner, Wyatt, Simon Walker and Andrew Kekewich. The band is frequently joined by Anissa Hart, Mika Posen, and Edwin Huizinga.
The band recorded their second album, If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone in late 2008 and early 2009 in Montreal with producer Howard Bilerman. This record, released on August 25, 2009, saw them push the limits of the folk and country genres that was heard on When Lost at Sea with a more sonic and multi-instrumentally layered aesthetic.
