Another Montreal crew to check is nine piece electrosoul/hip-hop collective Busty and the Bass. They're currently in the throes of a fall cross-Canada tour in support of debut EP Glam, released earlier this year via Indica Records (Half Moon Run, Phantogram).
Last year, Busty and the Bass beat out hundreds of hopeful bands to win CBC Music’s Rock Your Campus competition, a search for the best college band in the country. Since then, Busty and the Bass have sold out every show in Toronto this year, including at Canadian Music Week, NXNE, and most recently at The Horseshoe Tavern. In Montreal, the band played three back to back sold out shows during Montreal Jazz Fest, and to top it all off, opened for the legendary Wyclef Jean at this year’s Expo Québec. Renowned for their music versatility and intense, highly energetic live performances, Busty and the Bass are thrilled to continue touring this fall and give Canada’s west coast a taste of what they’re all about.
Busty and the Bass is a powerful electrosoul/hip-hop collective that combines the talents of nine dedicated young musicians. The self-produced EP, Glam, is the result of a collaborative song writing process, and showcases the group’s love for dance grooves, catchy hooks, and intricate instrumental textures. Busty formed during their first week at Montreal’s McGill University, where they quickly built a loyal following. In 2014, Busty was named "Canada’s top university band” by the CBC. Since then, they have toured extensively across the Northeast, including performing at Canadian Music Week and the Montreal International Jazz Festival. All nine musicians bring a distinct personality to the stage, and together they share a level of camaraderie, musicality, and creativity which make for high-spirited, fun-inciting shows.
