Biography

The Outfit Hail from the music hotbed that is Toronto, where they have earned a place amongst the city’s most exciting and promising unsigned acts.

The Outfit’s frenzied, polyrhythmic rock and roll sound is inspired by their fondness for a good drink, their seriously short attention spans, and by their disdain of boring, conventional contemporary rock as much as by an eclectic myriad of new and old musical influences. Their music is meant to be memorable and exciting: clever pop songwriting flavored by layers of instrumental melodies and backed by danceable, inventive rhythms.

Aside from having played dozens of shows at clubs and venues both in and out of their hometown over the past two years, The Outfit have had the distinction of supporting a number of highly successful international acts including THE KILLERS, MAXIMO PARK, THE DEAD 60's and AMBULANCE LTD. The Band also received a top critics pick in Now Magazine for last years NXNE festival in Toronto.

The bands founder and front man, Vello, first met drummer Jon Hawks while attending the Trebas Institute for music production. After a chance meeting, a heated discussion and several stiff drinks, Aureliano (aka Orly) was recruited for bass and electronics. It was some months later, after several unworkable would-be recruits that Francisco would take up the role of lead guitar and chief noisemaker in the band.

Front man Vello’s ability to create images through his words, the bands obvious understanding of the art of music and a focus on finely crafted songs shows the outfit as an act truly capable of engaging their audience.
