Biography

It all traces back to a shared townhouse garage in Toronto’s North York neighbourhood. Four friends – all university students at the time – compiled a few instruments, a random collection of microphones, and some makeshift studio gear to bring a handful of original songs to life with no set agenda or grand ambition. The resulting recordings, however, humble as they may be, glowed with an obvious spark that set Jane’s Party on a course from campus cover band to revered indie rock outfit with a still-growing pile of achievements and accolades propelling their rise.

Their 2011 self-titled EP and 2013 sophomore full-length, Hot Noise, built on the breezy folk-rock base of The Garage Sessions with more energy, electricity, and eclecticism. 2016’s Tunnel Visions pushed further into electro-pop territory with vibe-heavy textures that could tempt anyone onto a dancefloor while 2019’s Casual Island welcomed a diverse group of guest artists for some compelling collaborations rooted in polished pop rock with hooks for days. But while Jane’s Party has experimented with different sounds and styles, influences and eras, the sonic identity that first emerged with The Garage Sessions has remained: simple-but-substantial melodies, rich, multi-part harmonies, and a mastery of musical dynamism.

Their effortless penchant for catchy pop melodies rich with substance has made them sought-after for feature spots and syncs across pretty much every creative medium. They’ve had songs placed in films and series like Saving Hope, Burden of Truth, Kim’s Convenience, and Hockey Night in Canada; been commissioned for custom compositions for popular TV and podcast networks; and earned impressive engagement numbers across their various social media channels – including over 40 million streams of their hit “Daydream” after a feature in Fortnite. They’ve also extended their creative universe into clever covers and remixes, making their own music videos, and even two imaginative and often irreverent feature-length musical specials: 2020’s The Marshmallow Revue and 2021’s Wild in the Woods.

In addition to official slots at dozens of taste-making music festivals on multiple continents, they’ve shared stages with the likes of Arkells, Tokyo Police Club, LIGHTS, Lord Huron, Manic Street Preachers, and were even hand-picked to open two European tours for BRITs Critics Choice winner Tom Odell. Fittingly, that live, four-on-the-floor energy is what drives their latest studio album, 2022’s Live Again, and now the band – not to mention their ever-growing following – relish the opportunity to once again be reciprocating some love in live performance. They’ll only stop when the fun and passion start to fade, but Jane’s Party just keeps getting better while remaining consistent, compelling, and true to their original goal of sharing their songs with the world. And if their latest output is any indication, they’re still having a damn good time doing it.
