Bio

THE SOLE PURSUIT.

Initially forming as an outlet for singer Kyle Dawe’s creative aspirations, Toronto’s The Sole Pursuit have grown from a solo studio project into a fiery and anthemic rock act. This year, the band is packing up its endearingly pummeling live show and taking it to cities and towns across North America. 2015 will also see the release of “Infinite Regress,” the first full-length offering from The Sole Pursuit.

All of the striking rock, punk and indie elements of the band’s music are held together by Dawe’s vocals, which can leap from Bright Eyes coo to Pixies shriek on the turn of a verse. Since the release of their debut EP – the expansive “Opposing Force” - right through to 2014’s “Ocean Floor,” The Sole Pursuit’s sound has been reaching outward to fully utilize the energy of a band onstage. This is fully realized on “Infinite Regress,” an album incorporating louder guitars, ambitious arrangements and vocals that howl out from some internal wilderness. Fans and the uninitiated alike can expect a work that demands to be heard at high volumes, whatever format they choose to play it on.

In the two years since The Sole Pursuit came into existence, the group has played many venues in Canada and the United States, performed alongside the likes of Hollerado & Pup, and released several music videos online, most recently “I Devised A Plan.” With their first LP completed, The Sole Pursuit will be spending 2015 and beyond finding new friends to perform for and new spaces to exist in; hurtling towards some fantastic horizon.
