Great Bloomers was formed when childhood pals Lowell Sostomi and Nate Hindle moved to Toronto and met Andrew Kekewich. The trio quickly formed a strong friendship based upon similar record collections— all three valued essential works from The Band, Fleetwood Mac, and Springsteen. They added bassist Ty Rowles, and within a couple of months, they had found their final member in drummer/pianist Shawn Dell, a classically trained pianist with a strong jazz background. This added an entirely new dimension to the band — pulling from genres that most emphasize the importance of strong rhythm sections.
Great Bloomers were quick to blossom. Their 2007 self-titled EP, self-recorded in Lowell’s basement and released at their 3rd show, brought high praise from Canadian media, its ultra tight 20 minute run time packing a serious punch. This track ‘Catching Up’ instantly became a CBC 3 and college radio favorite, launching the fledgling band up the charts. [bio]
Great Bloomers also recently released their debut full-length Speak of Trouble (Grifter / MapleMusic), which is also available at the fine outlets below.
