By Divine Right features the psych-infused art-pop songwriting of chilean born singer / guitarist José Contreras. In the early days By Divine Right’s ever evolving line-up, counting amongst some of its members Feist, Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene) and Brian Bordchert (Holy Fuck), made it one of Canada’s first indie rock collectives.
In Sept 2022 Fortune Stellar Records released By Divine Right’s 9th studio album “OTTO MOTTO” to wide acclaim.
The band will be on tour across central and eastern Canada this summer 2023 with Shotgun Jimmie, including an appearance at Sappyfest.
To date Divine Right has been recognized with Polaris Prize and Juno nominations, but most notably the adoration of admiring music fans and the CanRock music elite alike.
