We are First Rate People. There are a lot of us, and we’re all over the place in more ways than one. We hail mostly from Owen Sound, Ontario and have mostly settled in Toronto, with bits and bites in other parts of the province. Folk music was our first love; the relationship was serious for a few years before we became tempted by electronics and louder, more danceable noises, and now our main occupation is trying to make those lovers get along. After five years, a few EPs, a few tours, and some crazy times, we’ve got a real album in the works and a lot of high hopes for the future. It helps that we’re all dreamers. On stage, there are usually six of us, but behind the scenes is the best group of friends and musicians we could ask for. The bottom line is a good time.
