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.
