Grand Splendid / Bio

Rock band Grand Splendid hail from Montreal and are excited to be on the local indie scene. Their upfront electric guitar sounds and soothing vocal melodies are attracting the attention of indie music lovers.

They recently released their first EP Numbers, which was engineered by Maxime Audet-Halde (Doba Caracol) and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, The Stills, Sam Roberts). In the studio, the band's musical exploration went beyond their guitar-driven sound, adding new textures with vintage keyboards, a pump organ and layered vocal harmonies.

Their singles, Hopeless and Energy, have aired on indie radio stations across North America, Europe and Asia.

They also received support from UK rockers The Joy Formidable, who selected Grand Splendid as the featured artist on one of their sporadic podcasts.

The buzz around the release of Grand Splendid's first EP landed them invitations to play at the NXNE and Canadian Music Week festivals in Toronto. They will continue presenting Numbers throughout the year with shows in Quebec and Ontario.

The band is composed of Julian Buchbinder (lead vocals, guitar), Maxime Arseneau (guitar, backup vocals), Alex Pilla (bass), Jean-François Laporte (keyboards, backup vocals) and Gabriel Dennis (drums, backup vocals).
