Toronto based Mayday Music seems to defy category or description. Lush arrangements, a full palate of instrumental sounds, both electronic and organic, graceful and gritty. Lyrics that cover a vast swath of topical space, both personal and universal. Sometimes big, sometimes intimate.

Multi instrumentalist/producer Jon James and singer/songwriter Derek Christie are the heart of this genre and era defying musical entity. Since the late 80’s, they have collaborated musically in numerous bands/projects, with their partnership culminating in this new body of work. Their first album, ‘Miracles and Sin’ (November 1, 2022), is a collection of songs they wrote and recorded during the pandemic lockdown of 2020-22.

  • Featuring Laurelle Augustyn and Kieran Christie (Clockhead) on backing vocals; brilliantfish on additional drums
