James Blonde is a three-piece Alt-Pop/Rock outfit based in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Comprised of three multi-instrumentalists and singers Neil, Phil and Steph. The trio has been playing together since high school but have rebranded themselves as James Blonde in 2017 with the release of their new sound. 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.
The band has spent the last few years touring the North America and have made major festival appearances at Osheaga, Edgefest, CMW and Burlington Sound of Music, opening for the likes of Weezer, Arkells, Sloan, Serena Ryder, Sam Roberts, Keith Urban and Lights. Their self-titled LP was released in 2017 and has propelled the band’s career forward with their biggest single ‘‘Heartbreak’’ reaching the top spots in several major Spotify playlists and being played several times daily in every Starbucks location across the globe. James Blonde is currently working on a new record for a 2019 release with a major North-American tour already in the works for Fall of this year.
