Best Fern

NYC / Gatineau

Best Fern is Alexia Avina and Nick Schofield – an ambient pop duo originally formed in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood. The two members now work long-distance between New York City and Gatineau as they prepare to release their debut album Earth Then Air in 2023 via Backward Music and Youngbloods. Earth Then Air was created during a highly productive two week residency at the Banff Centre in the Rocky Mountains. The duo have previously opened for Angel Olsen and Sarah Davachi, and played at SXSW, Suoni Per Il Popolo and POP Montreal.
