Losing yourself in high-energy riffs and infectious melodies is what you should expect when experiencing Taken for Granted’s music.
This Montreal-based alternative pop rock band’s journey officially started as a solo studio project by vocalist and guitarist Maxime Toussaint in 2015. Soon, Alexis joined on keyboards and Raphaël added his guitars. The project graduated from a one-man act to a full-pledged band project.
They began performing officially as a full band in 2016, which led to the release of their first full length album, Into the Abyss in 2017. This release took the band a massive step forward in their plans to get their music out to a vaster audience. In addition to the captivating hooks and catchy choruses, the album includes the vocal talents of Sebastian Roel, known for his incredible performances on ‘La Voix’ (the Quebec counterpart of America’s ‘The Voice’). After over 50 shows in under 5 years, performing with notable artists like Counterfeit, Story Untold, We Were Sharks and many more, they decided to take a brief hiatus from live music to get back to writing and recording.
They’re currently preparing for the release of their anticipated second full length album. As Taken for Granted has matured, so has their music. They’ve truly poured their hearts out into this new album in the hopes of touching the hearts and minds of listeners and audience members everywhere.
