Siskiyou is a Canadian indie folk band formed in Vancouver, consisting of singer-songwriter Colin Huebert and guitarist Erik Arnesen.[1] Formed to record songs that Huebert wrote after leaving Great Lake Swimmers to work on an organic farm in British Columbia,[1] the band released its self-titled debut album on September 7, 2010.[2]

The band has toured both Canada and Europe to support the album, both as a headliner and as an opening act for Jim Bryson and Sandro Perri.

They released their second album titled Keep Away the Dead digitally on September 20, 2011 [3] and on 180g vinyl and CD on October 4.[4]

The band's third album, Nervous, was released in 2015 and is a longlisted nominee for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize.[5]

In late 2015, the band helped score The Happy Film,[6] a documentary by Stefan Sagmeister and Ben Nabors. When asked in May 2017 about when the soundtrack from the film was to be released, the band tweeted[7] that "a record with much of the music from the movie will come out in the fall via constellation records."
