Bio:

Imagine the ugly love child of Miles Davis and Radiohead… The Worst Pop Band Ever is a Toronto based group that tries to combine a love of improvisational jazz music and indie pop�. Whether it be blending acoustic bass with turntables or analog synths with the saxophone, the WPBE sets out to twist and bend both originals and covers, straddling genres and butting heads with expectation.

“Street wise yet substantive… would appeal to fans of Vijay Iyer, Brad Mehldau, or DJ Logic… hip enough and deep enough for jazzers and non-jazzers alike.” – Mark J. Turner, All About Jazz ”

(They) might be a little weird but they strike a good balance between accessible and creative, and is one that should be checked out by anyone looking for bands like MMW or The Bad Plus.”
