Feeling a bit camera shy


You Yourselves formed in the aftermath of a disbanded hard rock outfit; “Phoenix Aflame”.
With four of the original band members intact, the group’s songwriting was luckily never
forced to cease and finding the two new members was a much easier task than assumed.
During the transition period the band's style gradually changed, blending the individual
musical tastes of the members into a more unique and creative project. With the final
lineup being set in stone the group was made up of Brian Gillis (vocals), Jonathon
Gazendam (vocals, keys), Reid McCarter (bass), Chris Mcintosh (guitar), Matt McConnell
(drums), and Rob McDougall (guitar).

The band began writing songs and playing local shows as frequently as possible,
developing a reputation for their energetic and neurotic live show. They decided to put
out a demo as quickly as possible, and a few months later the “Make It Happen” demo was
complete, being sold at local record shops and at shows. The demo opened many doors for
them as they were able to play at various local venues, as well as leave their hometown
to play in many other cities around Ontario. Over the past year the band has shared the
stage with many great indie bands like Five Blank Pages, Two-Hours Traffic, Reily, The
Thurstons, Sleeper Set Sail, and The Johnstones.

The band has recently recorded their first EP, which will be available in early March
2007, and plan to support its release with extensive shows within the borders of Canada.
