High Road Pilots joins Ecofest Barrie!

High Road Pilots are a 4-piece Rock n’ Roll outfit hailing from Barrie, Ontario. The band consists of three brothers, Sean, Jack and Liam Davey, and long time friend, Scott Grinton. After playing music together for years, they decided to start working on and writing music for a new project. Like stepping out towards the west as a pilgrim in search,musicians step out towards a seemingly infinite and unconquerable desert. To make something, of where once, were only ideas.

These four young musicians had a vision for what their project would achieve. A harmony between the crowd and the music. Musical freedom for the listener to open their ears and let the good rhythms of true Rock and Roll into their mind and down to their feet. Their motivation was simple; yet, the songs were nothing but ingenious. Mixing and melting the sounds of blues, surf, psychedelia, and spaghetti-western tones, over brazen and thoughtful lyrics.

High Road Pilots have been hard at work making rounds in the Toronto and Barrie Indie scenes. Since their inaugural show over one year ago, the Spaghetti-Western-Rock four-piece has been riding the media waves in television, music reviews and online videos. The band has just released an official demo entitled; "Demonstrations". The feel-good tunes and experimental ideas are sure to continue as the Pilot’s are committed to thrusting their sonic surfing style onto the Canadian Music scene.
