THE SPARE PARTS
Toronto band The Spare Parts are an Indie-Americana band with a Southern inspired Rock n’ Roll flavour. Their debut single Morning Light is a guitar driven bluesy banger of a tune, while their second single Life Moves Fast is a catchy, feel good Country / Rockabilly song. On their debut album Infatuation (June 4th) The Spare Parts show an aptitude for blurring the lines of genre, creating not just a collection of songs; but an album in the truest sense of the word. There is a refreshing earnestness to Toronto born lead singer Phillip Vonesh’s vocals and lyricism that harkens back to the 70's; think Warren Zevon and Levon Helm. Lead guitarist Bill Dyan was born near Milan, Italy and is affectionately known as The Italian Stallion. He plays with a signature tone and a classic feel. His guitar cascades throughout the album, from blaring solos to catchy licks. Bassist Gavin Quinn (The Tower Of Power) was also born in Toronto, and is the band’s steady hand. While the vocal melodies and electric guitar vie for your attention, Quinn’s smooth and steady bass tones give roots to the melodies and grounds them for the tapping of your toes.
