Avery caught the first flight back to Canada and together they tried to manage their family crisis from home. There were months of uncertainty, but finally the news came through that their brother would survive and make a full recovery. Their shared fear and pain had shaken their world and left them unsure where to go next, but it also brought them closer together. It was during this time of reflection and introspection that Elle and Avery decided to pursue their passion for music together as Harlequin Gold.
Following a few preliminary shows as a duo in Vancouver, they asked friend and producer/guitarist Justice McLellan to join the band. Together they made DIY apartment recordings for their songs “Without You Now” and “Youth” which picked up considerable attention. These initial songs created great live opportunities which found the band developing once again by recruited drummer Jamieson Ko.
With an ever-growing collection of heartfelt songs and a reputation for crushing live shows, Harlequin Gold are just getting started.
