SAM POLLEY and The Old Tomorrows
January 29, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$34.50 – $39.50
Being the youngest member of a musical family, Sam Polley grew up in the music industry, but took his own time to join the family business. Forming Sam Polley and The Old Tomorrows in downtown Toronto in 2017, Sam Polley surrounded himself with local musicians he knew had similar musical interests, recruiting brothers Tally and Gianni Ferraro (bass and drums), and veteran players, Fraser Melvin (Electric Guitar) and Jeff Giles (Piano/Keyboard). The band quickly meshed and played their first show to a sold out Cameron House Crowd.
At the beginning of 2018, the band headed to the studio to record their first EP, which they recorded in one long day at Pacha Sound Studio in Toronto (leading to the name, EP in a Day). With the new EP in hand, Sam Polley embarked on a cross country tour as a featured artist on the Jim Cuddy Band Constellation tour. Once back, Sam Polley and The Old Tomorrows continued to tour the EP through the rest of the year, playing both festivals and cities throughout Ontario.
Now, Sam Polley and The Old Tomorrows have finished their debut album, Time Forgot, drawing their sound from 50s and 60s rockabilly licks, old country twang, and Motown swing, blending genres to create an upbeat boogie with groovy hooks. Scheduled to be released at the beginning of 2020, this new album is sure to get everyone up and dancing.
