"Whether it's the inviting nature of the songs, the irresistible melodies or the unique vocal styling of Trevor James himself - there's something inherently Canadian to the sound of Trevor James & the Perfect Gentlemen. However, unlike their predecessors, the band infuses a much-needed youthful swagger to the roots, modern-rock, Canadiana sound of their debut album. Trevor James & the Perfect Gentlemen deliver a debut album that is loaded with hooks and destined for your radio. Armed with an impressive work ethic, an affinity for touring and huge crossover potential between indie / mainstream, it won’t be long before this band is on everyone’s radar."

"...this is the type of record that people play at parties on Friday night and you and the type of band your friends go see so you can push up front and sing along. That’s a sound that is much needed and honestly, most often poorly executed. Personally, I think Trevor James and his band are right on the money."

Bio

We decided to draw straws to choose who would write the band biography. It ended up being me, Hamish Robertson that drew the short straw. So here's how I saw it go down:

We formed TJPG in early 2008 after our other bands broke up. Tyson and Trevor have both been playing together since the turn of the century. I met them one night at a bar in Ottawa called Maverick's. Their former band 'The Architects' was a playing a show and I decided to introduce myself after their set. We hit it off and everyone got a little sloppy. I knew they were in need of a new member, so I suggested in a drunken slur that we get together and jam. The Architects disbanded shortly thereafter, which is when Trevor and Tyson gave me a call. The three of us gelled right away and formed “Trevor James & The Perfect Gentlemen”.

We finished recording the record they had started, which would go on to become our first self-titled release (distributed through Maple Music, Fontana North). We then went on to do multiple tours across Canada, and write a whole new repertoire of songs. Together we made the decision to move the band to Montreal. It was here that we were introduced to engineer/producer Dan Lagace (The Dears, Stars, Priestess). Just recently, we recorded our brand new 5 song EP with Dan at Studio Plateau. The new recordings will be our second release entitled 'The Lunchbag EP'; because it comes in a lunchbag.

Trevor, Tyson and I have each been in the game for a while now. We have played on hundreds of stages across the country both together and apart and have opened for some great bands along the way. With our new EP, we are hoping to attract even more attention from other great Canadian acts, as well as independent labels across North America. We are working constantly to put our band on bigger tours, bigger stages, and in front of bigger audiences, with very high hopes for an amazing 2010.

Thanks for listening to that ramble, and in the future when the 'Bio' needs an update, maybe someone a little more articulate will draw the short straw. See you out there!

Sincerely, Hamish
