It is February 10th 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The song Wait For You, by Edmonton, Alberta's pop/rock band Flash Jam, is getting recognized this week.
"Flash Jam emerged into the music scene in 2009 with their self-titled EP featuring catchy pop single Caught On The Dance Floor, which garnered independent radio play across western Canada. It didn't take long for this attention to reach a broader audience. Flash Jam won numerous competitions early on, prompting a series of Canada-wide bookings. The band also opened for several major label acts like Faber Drive, Stereos and Crash Karma."
Although I just recently discovered this talented band, their music is definitely catchy and I understand why their fan base has [now] evolved to almost fifteen hundred 'likes' on Facebook.
Flash Jam's latest EP, titled Brite Nights, Volume One, was released on August 17th 2012. The band wrote the following on their Facebook page, "Five-piece pop outfit Flash Jam is one step closer to packing dance floors with their much-anticipated sophomore release. The Edmonton based band recently released their sophomore EP, Brite Nights, Volume One, from the collection of songs known as Brite Nights Sessions that the band is splitting into two volumes."
The band also added, "Co-founders Jamie McLean (vocals) and Oliver Banjac (guitar / synch / backing vocals) created the band with a common vision - they simply wanted to fulfill their passions while engaging a broad audience through their lyrics, melodies and live performance. With the likes of Stefan Candie (keyboard / backing vocals), Brody Krock (bass), and recently added Caleb Hilbich (drums / samples), the band intends to continue doing just that with their newly-released tracks."
So, if you are like me and just discovered them, or have previously heard of this amazing band, you will want to continue to follow them. Their latest EP, Brite Nights, Volume One, which encloses this week's 'Song of the Week', Wait For You, is one you will want to pick up on iTunes. Plus, these guys will be playing Toronto, Ontario's Canadian Music Week 2013 event happening this coming March.
