Jailbirds

showcase:
Fri MAR 15, 11pM

Jailbirds started with one goal in mind, to be the best that they can possibly be at playing and creating rock n roll music. It's what they live for. It's what they think about from the moment they wake up, to the moment they go to sleep at night. Since January of 2016, three Jailbirds - Myke, Liam and Eric - have been working together to create fresh, strong, catchy, and heavy guitar-driven rock n roll music.

In their short time, Jailbirds have recorded a 4 song EP with producer Matt Grady at EMAC Studios in London ON, and have released 3 songs so far. They won the "Best Rock" award at the annual Mississauga Music Awards, have toured all around Ontario in places like Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston, Oshawa, Windsor, London, Barrie, and even have ventured to Ottawa on multiple occasions. Playing venues such as The Horseshoe Tavern, Casbah Lounge, Moustache Club (RIP), and many more. The full EP will be released in January 2019, and to celebrate, Jailbirds are teaming up with Gattsby Records of London ON to put on a show at Rum Runners, also in London.

In Jailbirds' core sound, there is influence of rock, blues, metal and guitar-driven music. Best described as a modern-rock sound with heavy influence of all types of rock music like grunge, 70s stadium rock, stoner rock, hard rock and so on. The band prides itself on not sticking to one particular sound, some songs are a completely different vibe than the next. While capturing some of the charm and magic that inspired the guys to start the band in the first place, Jailbirds manages to have their own character and originality, you can always expect an energetic and exciting show from Jailbirds!
