Still working on that hot first release.



Take The Apple started as a simple idea between two friends. Tim and Cristien had been playing music together since they were 19 years old, but in 2006 Tim moved out west and their projects were put on hold.

While Tim was in Vancouver he had been in touch with his old college buddy, Justin Corner in Toronto. Justin demanded that he return to Toronto to continuing playing music.

As a side project, Tim and Cristien hit the bar scene and started handing out set lists to try and get some acoustic gigs. It was then that Tim told Cristien, "You've gotta meet this guy, Justin!" The bond between the three was impossible to deny.

During the summer of 2011 the three started to play at some open mic events and backyard parties. With Cristien playing acoustic rhythm and lead vocals, Tim on Lead guitar, and Justin doing Bass and backup vocals the band was a nameless entity.

It was the three of them that decided on the name Take The Apple. With the twist of an arm, Justin was handed a guitar and the band became a dual guitar oriented hard rock band.

After trying out two different drummers, the stress of band politics was beginning to wear on them. Justin had mentioned Colomba Nardella many times. The two had met while working on another band project, and Justin was adamant for her to come out and show what she was capable of.

Thus the search began for a bassist, after trying a couple bassists in the band. Andrew Kantor was introduced to the foursome through a friend of Cristien’s, and completed the final touch to the overall sound, outlining the guitar riffs, and adding depth to the rhythms.

And then there were five! Take The Apple is more than a band, it's an idea; music is an honest expression of self and should be collaborative and able to inspire/identify with anyone.
