Founded in Vancouver, Canada in 2003, EBH is a three-piece band that blurs the lines between pop, rock, folk, and country, creating a sound that’s fresh, yet as comfortable as an old friend.

Singer and guitarist Ross Smith, bassist Brendan Mooney and drummer Paul Tansey know where the music they love came from, and want to do that history proud, yet still make it something fresh, new and entirely their own. A little bit of classic country here, some Australian pop there, add some British New Wave and a touch of Motown for flavour. EBH is a tasty sonic stew, and feels good in the belly.

The band has completed successful tour after successful tour, and countless local shows in rooms ranging from the famous Railway Club to coffee houses, gaining ground each time out.

Their live show bristles with energy, and their sense of humour and love of what they do moves their audiences. This isn’t soulless rock and roll posing, this is a dedication to songs, storytelling and melody.


Our new CD, Mars, Massachusetts, was released in 2011, and is available online at iTunes, TowerRecords.com, WalMart.com and at cdbaby.com.

Our first CD "Get it All Out" is available at Redcat Records (redcat.ca), Zulu Records (zulurecords.com) in Vancouver, and at indie record stores across western Canada. We're also available around the world online.

"Get It All Out" been added to the rotation at radio stations across western Canada. Visit the website for more info.
