Eh440 started harmonizing together in 2012. Using just their voices, this Toronto-based acappella group has wow’d audiences across the USA and Canada.

2014 brought them to the next step in their journey – the release of their debut album Turn Me Up. But their journey really started over a decade and half ago.

As kids, Janet Turner and Stacey Kay used to compete against each other in singing contests. The first time they met, Stacey was just 8 years old and Janet a little older. Over the years they each took their turn winning various contests and even though some competitors took it a little too seriously, they actually cheered on the other and became lifelong friends.

Luke Stapleton (aka Human Record) started beatboxing as a kid too. Coming from a “show biz” family, Luke would listen to his dad play the drums in their house and recreate the sounds using his only his mouth.

Mike Celia and Joe Oliva started their musical journeys a little later than the other three. Already into their teens, Mike taught himself to play guitar and sing while Joe joined his high school choir, just for fun, in his final year.

After coming together through the Toronto Independent Music Awards and mutual musician-friends, Eh440 was born – their first gig was performing the national anthems for the Valentine’s Day 2012 Toronto Raptors vs. New York Knicks NBA game. Singing in an arena before 20,000 people? Pretty good first gig!

So, Eh440 is a mix of 5 people from 5 very different backgrounds and musical genres. Joe’s been a low bass singer his entire life, Luke’s an urban beatboxer, Janet identifies as a country/pop singer, Stacey’s soul/pop, and if that isn’t confusing enough, Mike’s even more of a musical chameleon who cites blues, folk, and “anything with a good groove” as his influences.

Together they form “an unforgettable combination of crazy-ass beatboxing, sassy rapping, killer harmonies, and fresh, urban, RnB-influenced compositions”. And their debut album, Turn Me Up, exemplifies their abundant influences.
Hill Kourkoutis produced the album. Hill was the right producer to pull this band and these songs together – 10 of them were written by Eh440 – because she has the unique ability to find the soul and vibe within a song, regardless of the genre. That’s just one of the many reasons why they wanted to work with her!

On Right Back To Me, Janet & Stacey continue their childhood rivalry but this time, it’s in a bluesy battle for the heart of a lucky guy! Mike’s love of Motown is apparent in Whatcha Do, and throughout the whole record Luke and Joe provide a solid backing groove that could easily be heard in a nightclub. www.Eh440.com

The Arrogant Worms @ Creekside Theatre
Mar 14 @ 7:30 pm

The Arrogant Worms began their journey to musical comedy success (oxymoron) in 1991 in Kingston, Ontario on campus radio. They have since sold 230,000 albums and a DVD of their performance with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (televised nationally).

The Worms have become part of Canadiana – their songs are used in lesson plans across the country and one has even made it into an English textbook. The youth of Canada have voted them the most popular band on a national radio show – the band that came in second was AC/DC. However, it’s their live show that keeps people coming back for more as The Worms provide tuneful and silly escapism all over North America, Australia, and the UK in venues of all shapes and sizes – from small theatres to arenas to Disney to Central Park to The Grand Canyon. The Worms entertain at corporate events, sing anthems at sporting events and emcee at major festivals. No matter where they are, they are having fun… and the audience is too.
