In his younger years Colin played around with some bands in the Saint John, New Brunswick area. Taking the better part of 15 years off to focus on a career and a family, but never giving up on playing and writing.
Now with lots of life experience behind him, there is no shortage of writing material. Colin is constantly writing and is ready for a follow up full album to his 2015 EP "the upper cruft".
Growing up in the 90's Colin takes influence from the likes of: Chris Cornell, Alice in Chains, Eddie Vedder and now with the likes of Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Matt Corby.
Though he won't admit it Colin can hold up to these vocalists and is continuing to grow.
Alexis Castrogiovanni was born in London Ontario and is a classically trained musician with her Master’s in Cello Performance from the University of Ottawa. She started writing her own music during her undergraduate at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. She has performed classical music extensively in Ontario, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Quebec, but she has just recently begun performing her own songs in venues other than living rooms and open mics. She enjoys contemporary and experimental music, playing in chamber ensembles, and plans to record an album of her music very soon. Promise.
Ottawa-based singer/songwriter Rory Taillon is a road warrior, touring across the country and back again. He has the soul of the East coast but the sound of the West in his songs. His latest album, ‘Only Whispers’ is the work of a one man Wintersleep, a one man Tea Party, a one man Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, with a voice to match the majesty of the Rockies.
Originally from Port Perry in the GTA his new home allows him to capitalise of the touring opportunities available, crisscrossing the country, one coffee shop at a time, one brew pub at a time to build up a following of fans.
The proliferation of craft breweries across the country has created new venues for musicians and Rory Taillon has crafted a new road performing at many of them; he has collaborated with 5 Paddles Brewery in Whitby on a bottle label that is also a playable record featuring one of his songs.
Because Rory Taillon is not just an entertainer he is a performer. It’s just that simple, when Rory Taillon sings everything stops and when its starts again it’s all changed. It’s just that simple, like folk.
