"A lush jazz-soul-feel with a vintage vibe and orchestral pop energy. Inspiring modernday music with windswept ocean breezes splashing musical colours." -Lonely Vegabond

Biography

A year in the making, The Paint Movement's upcoming full length album was finished in early 2011. Produced and mixed by David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Apostle of Hustle) the album was recorded in a small town in the middle of Ontario: a church, which has been converted into a full recording studio. Long drives up and down highway 401 from the band's home in Mississauga/Toronto on weekends the band would go up to the studio a few days at a time to work on the album. Throughout this entire time the band decided not to play any shows and just focus entirely on writing the music.

The band returned to live music by premiering the songs from the album live at two sold-out shows at The Dakota Tavern in Toronto in January 2011 and followed that with a national tour with friends Yukon Blonde supporting the release of their 7” single featuring the song “Fortune’s Window” which took them on sold out shows in several cities such as Halifax, Fredericton, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto.

The 6 piece band mixes elements of rock, pop and soul and melds them into unique yet distinctive songs.
