Huron is a Canadian rock band formed in January 2008 from Hamilton, Ontario.[1] Members include Aaron Goldstein, known for his session work with such bands as Cowboy Junkies,[2] and Cam Malcolm, who was previously in the band Sweet Homewreckers.[3] Drummer Pete Hall was also a founding member of A Northern Chorus.[3] The band worked with record producer Ian Blurton for their debut album, which was released on Latent Recordings in March 2010.


Writing about the debut self-titled album, critic Vish Khanna said the music "is rooted in country tones, but stands apart because of its unique amalgamation of rock riffage and pop finesse."[4] In a positive review, Graham Rockingham called it "[k]ing-size riff rock with a rootsy edge from a Hamilton band that's screaming to be heard."[5]
