Biography

Dare I say, rock and roll, eh?

Self-proclaimed exponents of the art of acoustic-gone-basement, "left indicator" are a tight, little three-piece, currently based in Toronto. The group is comprised of Drew Englehutt (singer/songwriter/guitar/piano), John Arnaud (bass), and Mike de Carvalho (drums). You might say the band’s a bit of a happy accident, considering none of it was really intended; the fact that you’re reading this drivel is even stranger still. Our story begins in London (UK) where Drew played shows solo and with a three-piece called SESH (Bull & Gate, Dublin Castle, Hope & Anchor, The Half-moon, The King’s Head.) Missing home, missing friends, missing Canadian music, our travel-weary protagonist returns to Toronto with a handful of tunes. A chat with a high school buddy over pints at a neighbourhood pub, a suggestion is made, and jams are had. Jams turn into structured-jams which turn into solid tunes, which surprise the hell out of them both! Enter John A and the plotting triumvirate is formed. Demos were recorded, gigs booked, gigs played (Reverb, Stone’s Place, The Gladstone, Club Rockit, Kathedral, Holy Joe’s) and quality feedback received. So what’s next? Loads more gigs in various cities and an EP or two, if the gods are kind. Should be fun! For gig info, CD’s, and any kind of general stuff: you can usually find Drew, Mike or John A. lurking somewhere around www.sonicbids.com/dreambrother or bandstuff@rogers.com

Set List

drown with me
open spaces
still the one
can you find a thing to say
desire
truely deluded
swallowed
odd years
sister erase
desolate in D
