Coming together in the halls of Humber College’s music department in 2009, JUICE has quickly become an established act in the Canadian music scene. Drawing influences from classic soul and R&B and combining them with the modern sounds of indie rock and hip-hop, JUICE has created their own musical style. Releasing their debut EP “Nine Nineteen” in September of 2011 along with a live EP “JUICE Live at Clinton’s” in early 2012, the band’s music has been featured on a number of radio stations such as Jazz FM, CIUT FM, New Beat Generation Radio and Fusion Radio. After posting a link to their Bandcamp page on a Reddit article in September 2012 JUICE went viral, racking up over 45,000 plays in a week, which catapulted them to the third best sellers overall on Bandcamp and the best sellers in the rock genre. Since their tidal wave of online support, JUICE has gained over 14000 Facebook fans and countless positive comments and posts from new followers.
JUICE’s live show has taken them all over Ontario, performing at The Beaches Jazz Festival, The Burlington Sound of Music Festival, Toronto’s Indie Week Festival as well as headlining a number of University events including The Head of Trent in Peterborough and The University of Waterloo’s Canada Day festival. Their live performance has been praised by several different media sources, including The Waterloo Chronicle, Velvet Rope Magazine and TheNewHalifax.ca. The band’s live show has also earned them a spot as a featured artist on LivemusicTO.com and as a crowd favourite at the Beaches Jazz Festival selected by BlogTO.
JUICE is currently putting the finishing touches on their debut full length album titled “Hit The Ground Running” scheduled for release in May of 2013. The band is already organizing their release tour along with a number of festival appearances and other special events in the works for the summer of 2013.
