Across The Board (ATB) is an award-winning Canadian pop rock band of multi-instrumentalist musicians with over 160 Youtube videos, a debut album “JANE ON FIRE” (2016) and a new EP released this summer, “AMENDS”. Their newest single “Sonic Boom” is the title track off their upcoming second full length album slated for release in the fall of 2017.
ATB's newest EP, "AMENDS", is a concept album centered around the theme of facing one's demons and resentments in order to break free of the restraints of past mistakes. The first single,”Don’t Drag Me Down”—a fresh pop rock track with a nod to classic rock riffs—offers listeners an upbeat addictive progressive beat, layered vocal harmonies and a sparing use of musical dynamics. Featured on the International Women's Day website, and having received an Akademia Music Award as well as a Global Music Award in 2017, “Don't Drag Me Down" is currently playing on US College Radio, internet and terrestrial FM radio in North America, South America, Australia and Europe.
ATB was featured at Canadian Music Week in April of 2017, and will be touring Canada coast to coast to celebrate Canada150, from Aug 19th starting in St. John’s Newfoundland, making their way across the country and out to Vancouver on Aug 26th. The band will then board a train as part of the “Artist On Board” program with Via Rail back to Toronto for Labor Day—performing covers of classic Canadian tunes in addition to their own original songs to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
Having played to sold out crowds in and around the Greater Toronto Area since their debut album release in June of 2016, the band is excited to bring the ATB vibe beyond the Canadian borders onto the global stage in the spring of 2018 with their first European tour.
When they are not writing new songs, or performing live, Across The Board produces a regular Youtube cover series, entitled “Pick Up & Play” featuring other Canadian indie artists with an eclectic collection of instruments ranging from Chinese harp and melodica, to congas, various horns, stringed instruments and do-dads of all shapes and sizes. ATB is a creative bunch of career musicians who enjoy pushing the boundaries of their musicality—from living in a band house with an on-site recording studio and performance space, to starting their own record label, Sawbone Records, the band is leading the way for independent artists in this exciting new era in the music industry by taking on all the roles of manager, agent, booker, promoter and publicist while still finding time to make music!
