Bio

REDSTEPS are a Toronto, ON based band comprised of Chris Bjorkquist, Wyatt Best, Andy Blatherwick, Matt Fox and Alex Nathan. Formed in 2011, they play a mix of harmony laden rock and roll, folk, country, and blues tunes. Gigging relentlessly over the three past years, they have recorded and released a three song self-titled EP, with their full-length eponymous debut album set for release in June, 2014. Belting out three-part harmonies and backed by lively, guitar-driven grooves, they embrace a sound that reflects both city and country. With reverence for classics like The Band and Neil Young, as well as modern rockers Wilco and Ryan Adams, REDSTEPS provide an emotional, rootsy feel with a healthy dose of honest rock ’n’ roll.

Since the band’s inception REDSTEPS have crafted their sound by singing songs late into the night, and refined their performance with a steady regiment of gigging. They’ve won over crowds of all sizes, from classic Toronto venues such as the Drake Hotel and the Cameron House, to festivals like Steam Whistle’s Roundhouse Craft Beer Fest.

Their short EP was recorded at both Verge Music Lab and Harris Institute in 2012. Over the next year they began working with Mike Langford, owner and engineer of The Pawnshop Studio in Kensington Market. They were able to collaborate in the studio with Mike on their first full-length album, while tracking in D.I.Y. fashion at their rehearsal space near Queen St. West.
