As a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and mixing engineer, Andrew McLeod
has been releasing music since 2014, under the name Sunnsetter. Based in rural Norfolk County, Ontario, they've always been a DIY artist, single handedly fusing together every element of their music. And while the creation is entirely them, the music itself draws from various genres; ambient, singer-songwriter, shoegaze, post-rock, slowcore and moves nimbly between them. You may be already familiar with their work as they are a contributor to two-time Polaris nominated and shortlisted Zoon
, headed by Daniel Monkman
, and OMBIIGIZI
, a collaboration between Monkman and Adam Sturgeon

"Going on five years sober, this experience has been one that has shaped me like no other has" they say.
