The Pick Brothers Band with Special Guests The Riley New Band
The Pick Brothers Band have been moving up in the Toronto music scene since their early gigs in Kensington Market and with a number of sold out local shows over the last couple of years, the brothers (yes, they are actually brothers) are beginning to earn a reputation as one the city's most exciting upcoming acts.
With the independent release of their debut mini LP, Pink Lemonade, in the fall of 2013, The Pick Brothers Band began criss-crossing Canada on a series of small headlining club tours. The captivating blend of compelling writing, dynamic arrangements and a gritty rock and roll spirit captured on Pink Lemonade began to grab the ears of various industry tastemakers. The band was soon opening for the likes of The Sam Roberts Band, The Arkells, Houndmouth, and The Temperance Movement, in addition to showcase gigs at regional festivals like NXNE, CMW, Indie Week and QPOP. The band also placed a song (Hey Sugar!) on an internationally syndicated episode of MTV's “Degrassi”.
Early in 2016 The Pick Brothers Band joined forces with The Feldman Agency and Graeme McDonald at Kharma Management and now, with the release of their new EP “Blue Days”, the band is poised to grab a national audience with touring and exposure on a much larger scale. The self-produced EP was recorded at Phase One and mixed by Mark Makoway (Hey Rosetta, Great Big Sea, Moist). “Blue Days” is receiving great early reviews from industry heavyweights such as Alan Cross…… “….material that displays maturity and a distinctive sound. Best thing to do with these guys is get them out on the road. And when they come back, send them out again!”…….and that’s exactly what they intend to do!
The Riley New Band comes out of the heart of the Ottawa Valley in Renfrew, after years of playing country, rock and RNB hits. The boys have begun to work a release of their own material now and we cannot wait to hear it!
