"It's really a shame Justin Trudeau didn't manage to get pot legalized by July 1, because this record might have made the perfect soundtrack to Canada's first legal-weed summer."
- Kristin Cavoukian, Exclaim magazine
Formed in 2017, inspired by the acquisition of an old pedal steel guitar, Berman Billings is a new project featuring Matt Berman (Must Stash Hat) and Jonathan Billings (Jonathan Billings Band). After years of working together guesting on each others projects, it was obvious that there was a special connection. Initially getting together once a week to try each others songs out in this acoustic style, it was quickly realized that there was a new musical journey to explore. Many gigs where played in and around Toronto learning how to best work as an acoustic duo. Matt and Jonathan started bringing new songs to these gigs and sessions and recorded them quickly while they where still fresh. The resulting songs about life, love and good times can be heard on their debut album “Killin’ Time”, now available on vinyl/cd/digital.
The music is a blend of blues, folk and country with a splash of psychedelic. Look out for Berman Billings in just about any room in southern Ontario from large clubs to barber shops!
