I have the pleasure of appearing on Talent on the Bay on August 30th. It is an interview/performance show, where I will play 4 or 6 songs and chat about my music throughout the hour.
Real Life Situation
RLS was a band I was involved in with my brother Sean and friends Ryan and Luke. The band started out as a few guys jamming in London, Ontario. Recording on their own and playing the odd show, but practicing twice a week. They would go to Ryan’s basement later on where the full set up was kept. Sean had a kit, Ry had his many guitars and Luke had the sound system to send the vocals.
I was at school as well while this was going on. When I came home, Sean would leave for jams and I’d wish I had something like that. They didn’t have a bass player, and I never played bass but I wanted to be a part of the band. I got my brother to ask the guys one night, and they chatted and agreed to give me a few jams. I was so excited. It worked out well, I brought that low-end to their sound and what I did fit well. It was so fun.
I played a fretless bass for the first while, that was interesting. I ended up borrowed my friends Music Man StingRay. I had jammed with a bunch growing up but he wasn’t using it anymore. I ended up buying it off of him for a gracious price. It was such a sweet bass, great tone. We recorded a five songs EP that the guys had written before I joined. That was a good experience, both the process and how to deal with certain situations and what precautions to take. We jammed and wrote more songs, I started to sing more on chorus’. We all had a unique sound and different influences that it made the music fun to play.
We played shows in all over Toronto in some cool venues. Our friends were great at supporting us and we had a lot of fun performing. We started to get more serious and were working on our sound pretty intensely and were able to open up for Ill Scarlett and a benefit show in our home town of Georgetown. We had such a great time playing together.
A lot happens in life and that’s just what happened.. life. We slowly stopped jamming but never stopped being friends. We always get together and pick up our instruments, we will never lose that. Those guys are my brothers.
