The band kicked off their first concert as James Blonde in their hometown of Niagara Falls for NYE 2017, opening for Sam Roberts Band and Serena Ryder. However, the trio had already been together for years under an old moniker, touring the country and playing major festivals like Osheaga, Edgefest and CMW. James Blonde’s first album (self-titled) was released in 2017, with the lead single “Heartbreak” getting picked up by major Spotify playlists and Starbucks, which added the song to it’s in-store radio across the globe. “Sh!tshow”, the bands follow-up single in 2019, reached #96 on the US Top 40 charts. The last few years have seen the band become an indie touring juggernaut, having played extensively across Canada and the USA from coast to coast, delivering high-octane performances, precise musicianship and memorable moments for fans at every show.
