Possessing a sound tapped from the oaken belly of a whiskey barrel, The Commoners are a 5 piece Roots/Rock outfit from Toronto, Canada. Offering their own blend of a tried and true musical mixture, the group pepper their sound with high-energy riffs, soulful vocals, and rich harmonies that combine to take the listener on a journey through a Southern-style rock experience. Their 2022 release Find A Better Way is an album that demands attention from the first note. The opening lines, “If I scream at the top of my lungs, and stamp my feet ’till the floor comes undone,” immediately inform that a wild ride lies ahead. The Commoners crafted a record that strikes the perfect balance between old and new.
