The Pages are an eleven-piece eruption of musical intensity, dedicated to bringing the world new harmonic textures, new rythmic interactions, and most of all a new sonic experience. Featuring a potent horn section, a sometimes-lush, sometimes-gritty vocal attack, and a powerhouse engine of a rhythm section, this band evades any stylistic pigeon-holing while staying true to many strong influences. Soul, rock, afro-latin, jazz; all meet in a wave of sound and positivity. Anything is possible.


Wee Boy Pretty makes accomplished songwriting sparkle. Intricate guitar stylings, a bounty of percussion and vocals that are sometimes raw, sometimes fragile, but always dead right for the song.

Lyrically driven and spattered with deliciously psychedelic flourishes, Wee Boy Pretty ride from beach bonfire to dance floor. There’s groovy, there’s quirky, there’s out-and-out pop. They’ve been compared to everything from G-Love to Feist to Elbow.

The long-standing musical relationship betweensinger Jo Cairns and guitarist Sandor Gyurkovics began as a Whistler summer, sharing a love of music and bare feet. Teaming up with percussionist Erin Sharp, drummer Andrew Newton and bassist Josh Knepper has been a wild adventure and a total delight. Even now, 6 years and 5000 miles in, the journey feels like it’s only just beninning.

There’s a palpable energy at Wee Boy Pretty base camp. So come out to play, and let’s make something big, something grand and something beautiful.
