BIO

Bill Jr. Jr. is a new indie folk band out of East Vancouver. This four piece delivers the rich sound and rhythm of a hollow body baritone guitar (Russell Gendron), nuanced and idiosyncratic drumming (Byron Peters), mellow bass lines (Andrew Hewins) and an emphasis on vocal harmonies (Emily Huynh/Russell Gendron).  Zak Youseff on the trumpet, often appears as a guest for Bill Jr. Jr. at gigs as well as on their album, "Volumes." Also appearing as a guest trumpeter is Caton Diab

Their debut album, “Volumes” is a collection of songs written by Russell Gendron, the band’s frontman. The songs meander, dreamlike, through feelings of uncertainty and loss, physical neighbourhoods and change.

RECENT PRESS

"The delightfully odd Bill Jr Jr rolls out their latest single “In Time”. The tune is a peculiar mixture of indie folk, Roy Orbison, and some plain old strangeness. Quirky, but serious fun." 

-Ride the Tempo, August 3, 2017

"It’s a rare thing to come across a debut as finely polished as Bill Jr Jr’s Volumes
