Cruel Young Heart was officially formed during the time of the 2010 winter Olympics, and has recently come out of the legendary Mushroom Studio with their self titled EP, written and produced by singer James Blackmon, engineered and produced by Chris Michel and mixed by Mushrooms legendary Rob Darch (Tom Cochrane, Bif Naked, Delerium).


Cruel Young heart contains thick drums, catchy lyrics, with a smooth blend of dance synth and guitars. They are pop rock with heart.

The four- piece band, James Blackmon on vocals, Andrew Blackmon on drums and Drew Mckay on guitar and Graeme Han on bass, is becoming known as a band who�s style and character are becoming bigger than their music. With their visually appealing live show, and their catchy hook driven songs they are clearly taking pop music for a joyride while having a good time doing it.

From Vancouver BC, Cruel Young Heart is touring and playing local all ages and bars in support of their debut EP, which features �Don�t Come Any Closer�, and their popular single �Nightime Glow� which is the anthem for the bands willingness to try almost anything once in the name of regret less �over the top� pop.

The songs are sharp and catchy, and the show is larger than life. Cruel Young Heart is clearly doing something right, and has placed themselves on the fast track to success.
