Octoberman is a Canadian indie rock music group formed in 2005 in Vancouver. Fronted by singer-songwriter Marc Morrissette, the band also includes Tavo Diez de Bonilla on bass, Marshall Bureau on drums, as well as contributions from a number of frequent guest musicians, including Randy Lee (violin), Anju Singh (violin, viola), Shaun Brodie (trumpet), Jessica Wilkin (piano), Sarah Hallman (background vocals), Peter Doig (guitar), Kris Hooper (lap steel), Jason Starnes (keyboards), Mike Morrissette (vocals), and Ryder Havdale (vocals). Former members include C.L. McLaughlin on guitars and background vocals, Leah Abramson on background vocals, Graham Christofferson on bass and Rob Josephson on drums.

The band was formed by Morrissette when he returned home to Vancouver after taking time off from his earlier band, Kids These Days, to travel in Asia and Europe.[1] He released the first Octoberman album, 2005's These Trails Are Old and New, as a solo artist, and subsequently expanded the project into a full band for their second album, 2007's Run from Safety.[1] Their third album, Fortresses, was released September 1, 2009, and a fourth album Waiting in the Well was released in March 2012.
