Th­ey­call their mu­sic “in­die-rock-folk,” be­cause it de­fies def­i­ni­tion - they be­ing Bent By Ele­phants, a five-per­son band from Mon­treal. They give a con­cert in North Hat­ley this Satur­day at 7:30 p.m., in the his­tor­i­cal wood-pan­elled church at UUEstrie, 201 Main Street.

“If you like any type of mu­sic, really, I think you’re go­ing to like it. It’s eclec­tic. Maybe a lit­tle bit on the world mu­sic side. Maybe a bit clas­si­cal. I have trou­ble de­scrib­ing it. It’s unique,” says Ryan Frizzell.

Frizzell plays trum­pet and key­boards in the band. He’s the lo­cal link be­tween the Mon­treal group and the Town­ships. He and his part­ner, Crys­tle Reid, moved to North Hat­ley this sum­mer. When he’s not play­ing trum­pet, he de­vel­ops e-commerce web­sites, work­ing from home. Reid teaches col­lab­o­ra­tive cre­ation the­atre.

Luke Fowlie, on gui­tar, and Ch­es­ley Walsh, singer and also guitarist, started Bent By Ele­phants in 2008. Walsh writes the lyrics, and Fowlie and the other group mem­bers de­velop the mu­sic. Be­sides Frizzell, the other mem­bers are Eric Dew, on drums, and Paul Van Dyk, on bass.

Like the other band mem­bers, Frizzell was trained in clas­si­cal mu­sic at McGill Univer­sity. He has a Mas­ter’s in trum­pet per­for­mance. But that was just the start of their evo­lu­tion. They’ve made two full-length albums and a shorter EP. Their 2015 release is called “The Shore.” They call it “a raw and rat­tling al­bum of con­tra­pun­tal elec­tric gui­tars and sweep­ing synths.”

Bent By Ele­phants toured clear across the United States – Walsh is from Los An­ge­les. Then up to Van­cou­ver, and back across Canada to Mon­treal. They’ve played in the ex­cit­ing Hill­side Fes­ti­val, a non-profit mu­sic fes­ti­val in Guelph, On­tario. But this is their first con­cert in the East­ern Town­ships.
