James Blonde

LIVE! on Elgin Presents: James Blonde
With Special Guests Already Already

James Blonde:
Who is James Blonde? The answer is not a person, but the singular identity of an Alt-Rock/Pop trio comprised of Neil Carson, Phil Taylor and Steph Mercier. The new identity came to be in late 2016 when the trio, (formerly known as Xprime) finished recording their first LP. The music was new, exciting and more defined. Through the previous years’ heavy touring and time spent together writing, the band became like an individual; a being that is more than just the sum of its parts. The trio then decided to find a name suitable for the new defined identity they shared: James Blonde.

The Niagara Falls based alt-rock outfit we’ve come to know as James Blonde has spent the last few years touring the country under their old moniker and have made major festival appearances at Osheaga, Edgefest, CMW and Burlington Sound of Music. Opening for the likes of Weezer, Sam Roberts Band, Serena Ryder, The Arkells, Keith Urban and Lights. The band's debut (self titled) LP is slated to release August 21st, 2017 with a Canada-wide tour planned for this Fall.

Already Already: A live looping project.
In this project Bradley Young with his saxophone and Will Longuedoc with his Guitar in combination with loopers, modulation effects, and sequencers aim to create a memorable experience.
