“There’s no doubt that finding each other back when we formed was a major stroke of luck. However where we stand now is a culmination of combined effort and persistence. It took some time to find the perfect lineup, craft the perfect team and really discover the music that we wanted to make.”
The Commoners are a no-nonsense Canadian roots rock band from Toronto, Hamilton and St. Thomas Ontario. They wear their musical influences on their sleeves, with a hard hitting sound akin to rock icons like Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes and The Allman Brothers Band, while also drawing inspiration from Motown/Soul legends like Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. This Rock/Soul direction gave them the leeway they needed to find their sound, and pave their own name in the history book of rock and roll.
With two studio releases under their belt, The Commoners are now focussing their efforts on their biggest release yet: a new full-length record featuring 11 songs cultivated over the last several years. The Commoners’ debut self titled album, a Factor-Funded project features guest appearances from Miles Evans-Branagh, Jeff Heisholt, Ben Healey, Tash Henderson, Shezelle Weekes, Michael Eckhart, and Renan Yildizdogan, and is supported by their label, Gypsy Soul Records. The album is scheduled to be released on August 4th, with singles dropping through the spring and summer. Here’s a taste of what they’ve got cooking up.
Most recently The Commoners have teamed up with Teenage Head Music to take this show on the road. They’ll be crossing the pond for their first European Tour in October November 2022, following the release of their new record in the summer. Tour dates and cities soon to be announced via Teenage Head Music.
“We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership. A tour abroad is a dream come true, and the timing with the release of our new record couldn’t be better. We’re thankful to have such a hard working team backing this project. The Commoners are fuelled up and ready to take 2022 by storm.”
