With influences as diverse as the instruments they bring along for the ride, the group charts a course brimming with scenic detours and unsuspecting surprises. Hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Minor Matterstarted as Jeffrey Popiel’s experimental solo project and has grown to include 5 multi-instrumentalists that help bring his carefully crafted originals to life.

And the band has been hard at work since then, performing at prominent cultural events throughout Saskatchewan including LUGO, the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, MoSo Fest, the Ness Creek Festival main stage, and the Saskatchewan Art’s Board Lieutenant Governor General Awards, gaining new fans along the way.
