Lee Harvey Osmond, stylized as LeE HARVeY OsMOND, is a Canadian psychedelic folk project of musician Tom Wilson.[1]

The act first took shape with Wilson in his LeE HARVeY OsMOND persona, backed by Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies and Josh Finlayson of Skydiggers. They wrote, recorded and released the debut album, A Quiet Evil, in 2009 on Latent Recordings. Margo Timmins, Andy Maize and Suzie Vinnick also contributed to the album.[2] The band's current touring configuration consists of Wilson on lead vocals and guitar, Aaron Goldstein on guitar and pedal steel (who also contributed to A Quiet Evil), Cam Malcolm on bass guitar, Brent Titcomb on percussion and vocals and Ray Farrugia on drums.[2]

A Quiet Evil was a longlisted nominee for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.[3]

Their second album, The Folk Sinner, was released on January 15, 2013.[4] In June 2013, the album was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. The Folk Sinner was nominated for a Juno Award in the Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Group category at the Juno Awards of 2014.

A third album, Beautiful Scars, is slated to be released on April 7, 2015.[5]
