Borealis (prog rock, classic rock)

Most musical movements have been historically late to wash up on the shores of Newfoundland & Labrador, but the delay of Borealis did not limit the reach of the band’s ground-breaking output. Borealis were based out of St. John’s, NL, and in 1972 their Sons of the Sea LP would be the province’s first recorded venture into psychedelia and hard rock. The album would claim its place as the first 100% original album by a Newfoundland band. By 1972, Borealis ambitiously churned out the ten song Sons of the Sea LP on Audat Records. Ron Hynes also released his debut album on Audat that same year, giving the label the first two all original albums by both a solo artist, as well as by a band, in Newfoundland & Labrador history.
