Eastern Owl has been praised for their unique and engaging experiences for community audiences. Many of their performances and creative efforts focus on combining their love of music and culture with increasing awareness of the Aboriginal population in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Eastern Owl came together has a group out of a desire to remain connected to their Indigenous culture and traditional teachings while living in an urban setting. Majority of the songs they began singing were traditional Mi’kmaq songs for ceremony and healing taught by members of Miawpukek First Nations reserve. As the group began to grow and receive teachings from Elders from other nations, they began performing at community events often for Aboriginal grassroots movements such as Idle No More, MMIW and for support of Indian Residential School survivors. As the group gained popularity they sought other avenues of learning new music while seeking inspirations from other Indigenous groups throughout Canada until deciding they would compose their own music. Their style now encompasses traditional First Nations drum songs and contemporary music to reflect each members individual experiences in modern day society while maintaining their Aboriginal identity.
