The band have been spending the last year refining their sound, recording their tunes and doing one-off shows around southern Ontario, all building towards the digital release of their debut EP "Â…And In The End, Release." As the backbone of Public's live set , the EP is bombastic yet melodic and sparse. That these elements can co-exist so gracefully is what sets the band apart in a music scene that is often dominated by only one.

With two full albums worth of songs at the starting gate, things are ready to go. It's been a productive time.

All the hard work and obvious talent has happily inspired others to lend a hand. Notably Violent Femmes front man Gordon Gano, who has helped with recordings and shows in the past, Keryn Kaplan of Principle Management who has referred to herself as Public's "fairy godmother", and Warren Brulee, producer for Throwing Muses and The Violent Femmes, who lent his heart and his ears. Playing for Rick Rubin in a grand marble bathroom in NY is just one of the many unplanned moments that continue to pop up for these guys, and there's more to come.

And now with a significant buzz following a sold out release party and numerous songs to prove why, Public will take their dynamic performance to new and larger audiences.
