w/ Tom Boy
James Blonde is a three-piece Alt-Rock/pop outfit based in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Pulling influences from Arctic Monkeys, Muse, Mother Mother and harmony-laden vocal bands of the past, James Blonde have crafted a modern alternative sound rooted in their hook-infused rock influences and love for harmony heavy vocal stylings.
Toronto-based duo TOM BOY was formed by singer Nate Daniels and guitarist Dante Berardi Jr. after the dramatic collapse of their former band, CAIRO. After facing the threat of music unheard, the two musicians collected their resources (and what was left of their pride) and began to feverishly work on new material in 2018. What emerged was, to say the least, an affront to the senses: catastrophically lush arrangements catch your attention immediately and hold it with lyrics that ruminate on the nature of addiction, desperation, and vitriol.
