Best known as the award winning producer and star of the hit TV series Survivorman (OLN Canada, The Science Channel US, Discovery Channel International, City TV (Rogers) Canada), Les Stroud is the only producer in the history of television to produce an internationally broadcast series entirely written, videotaped and hosted alone. The godfather of ‘Survival TV’, Survivorman is one of the highest rated shows in the history of OLN Canada, the Science Channel US and Discovery Channel US.
Musically, Stroud has shared the stage with the top in the business, including Alice Cooper, Steven Stills, Tommy Shaw, Robbie Krieger, Blues Traveler, Tesla, Jacob Dylan, Chicago and The Roots. Revered worldwide for his iconic harmonica playing, Les’s style runs an eclectic gambit, from art-folk-roots rock to contemporary art rock. He has written all the theme songs for his TV series and scored several independent films before the intensity of television producing took over. He has won numerous regional music festivals, recorded three CDs (one in collaboration with the Northern Pikes) and is currently recording his fourth and fifth albums. His third CD, Wonderful Things, features guest appearances by Bryan Potvin, Oh Suzanna and Cowboy Junkies’ Jeff Bird. The release includes a feature documentary film entitled The Barn Sessions, produced by long-time collaborator Barry Farrell. In 2013, he performed at the prestigious Green Ball in Washington, DC where he met Vice President Joe Biden.
