The Acorn is the project of Ottawa-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rolf Klausener.

With music spanning minimal electro and art folk, to poly-rhythmic experimentation, The Acorn has established itself as one of Canada's most enduring musical acts of the last decade. At its heart lies Klausener's vivid songwriting, and intimate arrangements.

Over the last decade, The Acorn has toured worldwide with notable artists like Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and Elbow, and has released 4 full-length albums, and multiple EPs.

Their critically-acclaimed 2007 album, Glory Hope Mountain, and 2015's Vieux Loup were both long-listed for Canada's Polaris Music Prize.
