Since the release of their debut record 'Toastmaker' in August 2017, Patiohawk has been hard at work building off of their loyal fanbase at home, playing some of Toronto's most historic venues such as the Rivoli, The Horseshoe Tavern and Cameron House to name a few. The band has also toured eastern Canada, playing shows in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, as well as opening for LA rock up-and-comers Valley Queen back in Toronto.
Patiohawk's tight, melodic sound is derived from a wealth of influences ranging from 70s hard rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith, to more contemporary rockers like Queens of the Stone Age, Tame Impala and White Reaper. The concept of groove is paramount to the band, and a thick, unmistakeable bass-driven thread connects all of their material. 'Toastmaker' has been described as "all at once nostalgic and fresh". The band takes pride in their eclectic songwriting, delivering hard- rock riffiness and psychedelic synth-driven bliss on the same record.
