The Balconies are a pop/rock band composed of Jacquie Neville, Steve Neville, and Liam Jaeger. Jacquie and Liam met at the University of Ottawa in 2005 and formed The Balconies in 2007, with Jacquie’s brother Steve. The Balconies released their first self-titled EP in 2009 recorded and produced by Carlin Nicholson of the band ‘Zeus’.
The Balconies released “Kill Count” EP in 2011, produced by Jon Drew (Arkells, Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up), and received lots of radio play for the track “Kill Count”.
The Balconies have done extensive touring throughout North America and Europe, and played many music festivals such as South by Southwest in 2012 and 2013, Canadian Music Week, NXNE, SXSW, Ottawa Blues Fest 2012 & 2013, and Culture Collide (Los Angeles), CMJ (New York), Liverpool Sound City, & The Great Escape (Brighton).
In 2014, The Balconies released their debut Album “Fast Motions”, produced by Arnold Lanni, along with videos for tracks “Boys and Girls”, “The Slo”, “Do It In The Dark”, and
“Good and Ugly”. The majority of 2014 was spent touring in support of “Fast Motions”.
The Balconies released their new album “Rhonda” this October.
Too Soon Monsoon came together thanks to the power of social media during the summer of 2016. Greg Torwalt (keys & vocals) and Nathan Henry (drums) began sending song ideas and drum tracks back and forth before meeting in Nathan’s garage for their first practice. The duo had instant chemistry and soon began writing songs and performing around Saskatoon.
Too Soon Monsoon’s style is a unique blend of many influences and genres. Nathan gained much of his experience playing in the heavy rock scene whereas Greg has a singer-songwriter/pop background. With a list of varied influences including The White Stripes, Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, Fleetwood Mac, Kings of Leon, The Beach Boys, Fiona Apple, The Beatles, Metric and Feist, Too Soon Monsoon fuses rock, r&b, blues, and pop to create a fresh sound that warrants your attention.
