"27th Letter Rocks in Windsor - 2004-12-09"

Detroit Michigan, affectionately known as the Motor City, is almost as well known for the musical talent it has produced as it is for the automobile industry that resides in and around it’s parts. It's the home of Motown, electronic music and garage rock. It's where Eminem, The White Stripes, and even Creem Magazine began.

And so it is no wonder that right across the river, in Windsor, Ontario, modern rock group 27th letter is making its way into the mainstream music industry.

Currently independent, the band is made up of brothers Ed and Andy Gravel on bass and drums respectively, Brad Mailloux on lead guitar and Devin Chedour on rhythm guitar and backup vocals. The band is fronted by lead singer Adam Gowanlock. attended the band's show last Sunday night at the Treehouse Lounge in Windsor. The intimate venue was packed with the band's large following of devoted fans. As they played through their original songs, audience members could be seen singing along, enjoying every moment of it.

The band's style dances between soft and hard modern rock, their passion for their music evident in every note.

As the lounge filled with the vibrations of 27th Letter’s music, it was clear that the crowd and the band were feeding off one another. Frontman Gowanlock gave his all in every song, singing with passion, power and authority. His bandmates thrived on it, interacting with one another to show their love for their music.

Their sound, although reminiscent of breakthrough bands including Trapt, Chevelle, and Velvet Revolver, is still highly original. The band’s first single, ‘Torture’ is already garnering airplay on Windsor and Detroit radio stations, with more to come in the near future.

Our Thoughts

Any fan of emotionally driven modern rock would benefit from seeing 27th Letter, a new band who plays with their hearts, simply because they love to.


We recently recorded a demo cd in Kingsville, Ontario, in June of 2004. We have had our song "Torture" played on the local radion station for Windsor/Detroit, called 89X (88.7FM)
And we have all our studio songs available for listening on and



27th Letter is a unique band made up of five members. Each member of the band has his own taste in music and this is what drives the creative
collaboration in our song writing process. The band originally started with guitarist Devin Chedour and his dream to play in a touring rock and roll band. Devin met a drummer named Andy Gravel while both were attending school in Essex, Ontario.
The two started jamming a couple of times a week and eventually got very comfortable and familiar with each other's playing style. When Devin and Andy realized they were starting to make music that was original and unlike any other music produced locally, they asked Andy's brother Eddy to join the band. At the time Eddy was playing drums in a local garage band. He quickly jumped at the opportunity to learn a new instrument.
The position that Eddy was applying for was bass guitar. Eddy has a background in drums and guitar, and he was able to adapt his rhythm from percussion and add his ability from guitar to the bass. Adam Gowanlock has been a long time friend of Devin, Andy, and Eddy, and was also singing in the garage band that Eddy was a part of. The trio invited Adam to come out to a "jam session" and see what he could add to the sound. Adam completely impressed his three friends with his ability to sing and from that point on became the band's singer. Brad Mailloux was the last member to join the band. Both Adam and Brad were attending St.Clair College in Windsor, studying Electronic Engineering. Adam mentioned to the band that they should invite his classmate out to a band practice. At this point, the band had written two original songs, "Disappear" and "Clarify" which Brad was able to learn in one band practice and add his own twist to the songs. Brad definitely came prepared with his ability to play lead guitar and added incredible depth to the music.
