An Amos The Transparent show can include multiple part a cappella harmonies, handclaps, all out guitar rock and raucous fan sing-a-longs...and that's the beauty of them.
The lush arrangements and subtle textures on their debut album "Everything I've Forgotten To Forget" and newest EP "My, What Big Teeth You Have...", can be easily be stripped down acoustically or turned up to ten in a live setting.
The Ottawa-based band has quickly become darlings on the Canadian scene racking up accolades from media outlets like XM Radio's The Verge and Billboard Magazine. Amos The Transparent have also scored key slots in major festivals like Canadian Music Week, SXSW, Ottawa Bluesfest, Halifax Pop Explosion, NXNE and Brisbane Australia's BIGSOUND as well as supported bands such as Tokyo Police Club, Besnard Lakes, The Dears, Hollerado and Jeff Beck.
2009/2010 has been a breakthrough year for the band seeing them win financial support from local radio station Live 88.5 FM and being named a finalist for Artist of the Year in XM Radio's Verge Music Awards alongside notable Canadian artists Joel Plaskett, Alexisonfire and Dan Mangan. "My What Big Teeth You Have..." was added to over 200 US College radio stations, was licenced to 12 network television shows and was recently featured on MTV's The Real World.
Founded by songwriter Jonathan Chandler and Chris Wilson, the band includes long standing members Mark Hyne, James Nicol and Dan Hay.
Always full of surprises, once you have witnessed Amos The Transparent live, it is not hard to understand why their shows are now becoming legendary.
