Bio

THE SOLE PURSUIT.

At some point – we don’t know exactly when or exactly why – aggressive, guitar-based rock music seemed to become excluded from the gauntlet of art and genre typically considered sophisticated or, indeed, even thoughtful. Presenting a new and exciting counterpoint to this movement is Toronto’s The Sole Pursuit. The band’s songwriting is as strong and earnest as its attack is raw, while its contemplative moments are nuanced and beautiful.

Established in late 2012, The Sole Pursuit began as the recording project of front-man Kyle Dawe who, after gigging steadily since his early teens, wanted to immerse himself in the studio unbound from the practicalities of a rehearsing rock band. “Opposing Force,” The Sole Pursuit’s 2013 debut EP, is a testament to that vision.

Oddly enough, it was the process of assembling a band to perform “Opposing Force” that led Dawe back to the redemptive power of live rock and roll. Joined by AJ Perry on lead guitar and background vocals, Chad MacKay on bass, and the formidable Brad West on drums, the band began to write new material in the spirit of collaboration. This collaborative spirit is captured on their 2014 follow up EP “Ocean Floor.”

In October 2014 The Sole Pursuit entered the studio to begin work on their debut full-length album with producer Mike Langford. That same month they launched Infinite Regress, an ongoing web-series that will document the recording process and beyond. Additionally, Kyle Dawe and AJ Perry host a weekly podcast – The Sole Pursuit Podcast – that is as much about comedy and pop-culture as it is the inner-workings of the band. In 2015 The Sole Pursuit will tour extensively in support of their as-yet-untitled debut full-length album.
