A well known promoter in Toronto once told us, “If you don’t absolutely have to do this job, just don’t bother.” It’s this and countless other pieces of advice that push us forward.
Our first gig in 2016 seems a distant memory. We booked that show ourselves – A two hour set at “The Barrel Public House” in North York – and had family collect the $7 door charge. Since then, CYGNUS has played a slew of clubs and halls like Opera House and The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Ontario.
As a band, CYGNUS carries an intense respect for the great musical acts of the past and present. Artists like, Arkells, Muse, Queens Of The Stone Age, Pink Floyd, and so many others, have fueled our passion for what music can be.
The release of our self titled debut is a reflection of lessons learned, both musically and lyrically.
From the start, our aim has been to strive for a sense of quality and care in all aspects of the band. Achieving perfection might be an impossible pursuit, but we feel that the self titled EP is the strongest reflection of our music to date.
You can find it, and our new music video for ‘Everyone’s Told Me’ here.
