About The Event

At the age of 25, Terouz made the ballsy decision to leave his hometown of Cairo and brace the Canadian winters to pursue a peaceful artistic life in Montreal.

In 2012, he turned to his true passion of songwriting and started religiously frequenting every open mic night in town, meeting musicians and working on his craft.That’s when he came to meet session guitarist Hubert Tremblay and the rest of the band members Harvey Bienaimée (drums), Andrew Sudlow (bass) and Isaac Gesse (trumpet) joined to complete the group.

In 2013, after landing a monthly residency gig at the distinguished Le Piano Rouge, the band beat out 200+ others for top honours and a first place win at the LME showcase competition (http://www.landmarkevents.net).

The prizes boosted them to unveil their first album Sinners on St-Laurent in march 2014, produced by the great Glen Robinson whose mixing and mastering credits have been involved in projects with Dave Grohl’s Probot, The Ramones, The Steve Miller Band, David Bowie, AC/DC, Keith Richards, The Tea Party, Ringo Starr, The Beach Boys and many more over the course of his career.
