Mr. Jr. is an original country / rock band from Toronto, Canada who have been playing since 2012. Their individual musical influences range from punk rock to classic rock to country and combine to produce a style that is often simple, frequently danceable, sometimes witty, and always fun. They have a deep passion for all genres of music and the band tries to make sure that everyone from the crowd to the venue staff are having a great time. Professional attitude without taking themselves too seriously, Mr. Jr. has learned what it takes to make a great night of music.
In 2012, Michelle was as a girl with her guitar. She had played in previous bands prior to then, playing mainly alternative music and went as far as releasing 2 solo albums. She was looking to start a new band and put out some online feelers for musicians. Enter Jay, with his guitar. He had played in previous bands and was looking for a new project. “I really wanted to find a project where the vocalist had a distinctive and powerful voice.” So, he came out to a rented jam space and met Michelle. One jam led to two, and so on, until it didn’t have to be said that they were a band.
Jay, highly inspired by country, blues, and bluegrass players, started to add those flavors to the music. Michelle, inspired by these sounds, started to find a new voice heavily influenced by the punk music she loved so dearly. Lo and behold, the genesis of Mr. Jr.’s ultimate sound had been discovered. Yee Haw!
