When it comes to biographies, there is a story that everyone has about how friends gathered with common interests and complimentary temperaments to form a band. Ours is likely one of those in truth, but we prefer the version where the collective writings of stand up - drummer Julian Bowers and soulful vocalist The Lion in Love fused after one night of sleep deprivation and galvanized with the work-horse-like ethics of amateur keyboardist Oliver McTavish-Wisden and giant bassist Jesse Leon Easter. Hailing from Vancouver's wild surrounding towns and cities, Sleuth consists of artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers, critics, collectors, spectators, collaborators, readers, failures, amateurs, enthusiasts, atheists, spies, shy, unsure and usually unemployed, but willing to try anything twice (or not at all.) Since our forming in 2010, Sleuth has been about noise and bubblegum, seeking a space that makes enough sense. We are interested in pop music, sodapop, hootenannies, shindigs, soirées and clambakes.
