The Occasional Angels is an Ottawa-based Indie band formed in July 2016 by rhythm guitarist and song-writer David Hart. Originally a trio, Hart expanded the line-up to include eight members: Lead singer Cris Ruggiero, drummer Mackenzie Perks, bassist Dave Daley, lead guitarist Francis O’Keefe, keyboardist Tom Pechloff, saxophonist Zeek Gross, trumpeter Kelly Craig as well as Hart on rhythm guitar. All songs are written by David Hart, recorded/arranged and produced by Scott Paterson. The band has released three albums since their formation: ‘Renascimento’ (2016), ‘Esperanca’ (2017), ‘Angels in Exile (2018) with a fourth album ‘In the hands of an Angel’ scheduled for release in August 2018. Hart committed the band to a series of monthly single/video releases beginning in February 2017 and extending through until January 2019 for a total of 24 singles in 24 months. The video/single project has reached over 135,000 on Facebook so far with ‘Motown’ their 12th release achieving an impressive 42,000. In May 2017 the band recorded two songs live off the floor at Raven Studio in Ottawa with Grammy-winning producer Rob Fraboni (The Last Waltz, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Band, Bonnie Raitt). Sold-out shows in Ottawa and Hamilton in the fall of 2017 as well as an appearance at Folkfest in Ottawa have been additional highlights for a band that is just now hitting its stride. 2018 promises to be the break-out year for the group.
