Busty And The Bass

Forming within their first week at McGill University in Montreal, Busty and the Bass learned the ropes of performing together before even giving thought to their name or sound.  Playing mainly house parties and covers for the next two years, Busty gained a reputation for delivering dance-filled live performances unmatched in energy and vibe.

 

It wasn’t until entering a competition run by Canada’s national broadcaster, CBC, that the nine members of Busty and the Bass made a conscious shift in focus.  The band changed gears from carefree performance to composing, writing a song that would be their first-ever release and their entry to the CBC competition in search of Canada’s best university band. That’s when Busty came to life.  They won the competition and went on to self-release an EP before getting signed by Indica Records (Half Moon Run, Phantogram) later that year. 

In the summer of 2015, Busty released their second EP, titled GLAM, a soulful, brass-laded seven track effort that paved the way for a North American festival run which included trips to New York, Los Angeles, and Canada’s west coast, highlighted by three sold-out nights at the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

 

Now Busty embraces a different timbre with their newest material.  Whereas previous releases attempted to bring their live energy to record, the material set for release this spring will find its place in electronic-soul, drawing on their hip-hop and jazz influences.
