The Wonder Project is all about trust and listening. Pete and Kyle and Rob create a spontaneous repertoire that is deeply rooted in melody and groove. Their trio emerged in 2024 in Ottawa’s New Edinburgh neighbourhood through local collaborations: accompanying dance classes at The School of Dance, responding to poetry during meditative evenings at MacKay Church, and lots of straight-up gigs (Wakefield’s Café Earle and Beechwood Avenue’s One Up Room). Along the way, they’ve been interviewing Ottawa folks about personal experience of ‘wonder’, and subsequently playing music (jazz tunes, folk songs, original compositions) in response to these profound words and shared stories.
Trust and listening shape the music and musicians, but ultimately it’s all about wonder.
