The band formed in Southampton in 1986, the teenage creation of singer/songwriter/guitarist DAN O’FARRELL and keyboardist RICHARD BARRETT. Immediately playing gigs in their home town, they became significant players in the vibrant South Coast music scene of the time. Selling short runs of home-produced cassette albums, they typified the have-a-go attitude of the resolutely anti-fashion and anti-showbiz UK post-punk era
Toronto based rock duo Girl Meets Bear are Rebecca Emms and Joel Bojeczko. Starting in Edmonton, taking over the Alberta live music scene in fall 2011, Girl Meets Bear stage presence separated the band from other local acts. In 2013 they moved to Toronto, where they have been recording some songs with Mike Rocha, that you can expect to appear anytime on your favourite digital retailer.
