Storming out of Toronto, Ontario, The Lad Classic have been on the scene since November 2010 and released their very first recording earlier this year. Introducing your band with an acoustic EP is a bit of an oddity in the industry, but The Lad Classic make it work.
The entire EP consists of tracks that were stripped down to Rock and Roll rawness. The inspirations are definitely stemmed from big rock groups that have come before them. The band’s instruments throughout all five tracks resemble a Led Zeppelin-esque sound.
Lead singer Paul Stevens gives off pure rock vocals that can be compared to The Trews’—another Canadian band—lead singer Colin MacDonald. Both have a very unique sound that will bring any band to the top.
Their Acoustic EP was recorded with producer and engineer Damon de Szegheo who has produced records for Serena Ryder and Said the Whale, and it shows. A well produced EP goes a long way for a band just getting their bearings.
All in all, The Lad Classic’s Acoustic EP is a solid piece of work that definitely shows that the band’s hard work has payed off. Look out Canada, The Lad Classic are on their way.
