Bio

"It’s rewarding to see how our sound has changed over the years. When we started playing together back in elementary school, we were inexperienced, naïve – we didn’t have a whole lot of direction. But we’re really fortunate to have survived all that. You’d have to hear it retroactively, but we’ve come along way as musicians and performers.”

“Our first demo was done at a low budget place in the east end of Burlington; Ten songs in two days, a whole lot of mistakes, and a whole lot of work - we ran the producer into the ground. We were satisfied with it for about a week, if that. Ultimately, it was that recording that made us realize we needed more musicians. You might consider it a musical milestone.”

“We’ve played everywhere and anywhere opportunity has allowed. Our music has earned a loyal following in our hometown. Events such as Youthfest, the Sound of Music, our CD Release Party with a crowd of 360 proved to us time and time again that we have an active and supportive fan base. Those are performances where it’s so critical to play your best, because those who love you the most are listening.”

“Aside from shows, we’ve been lucky to share our music in other ways. The live radio show we played in at Ryerson was awesome, gaining the experience of interviews and playing acoustically over the airwaves was definitely one of the cooler things we’ve done. Our music was also used on Xtreme Television for a promo they launched. It feels good to know people are listening. Our music is also trickling across the country with the help of friends, family and fans. It’s gratifying to know that there are people in Newfoundland and Alberta who know the words to a White Elephant song.”

”We’ve had the privilege of working with a multitude of talented producers such as Robin Aube (U2, Sarah Harmer, Ani DiFranco, The Killjoys) and Paul Inson (Disney). Both saw a lot of talent and wanted to work with us again in the future.”

“Before Art’s father Bruno passed away, he gave the greatest gift a supportive father could present to his son – our studio. This studio that we record and mix everything in was an incredible step for us creatively, but remains a bittersweet blessing nevertheless. It’s rare to have this kind of uninhibited control over our music; it’s what keeps us happy and allows us to continually develop as artists.”
