BIO

Bill Jr. Jr. is a new indie folk band out of East Vancouver. This five 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), washed out trumpet by Caton Diab and an emphasis on vocal harmonies (Emily Huynh/Russell Gendron).  

Bill Jr. Jr.'s latest release, "The Motions", is a vulnerable display of original songwriting with soothing upfront and dreamy vocals that settle nicely amidst tight grooves.
