Single Mothers
Single Mothers
Often described as frantic, frenzied and outrageous Single Mothers exists upon the fundamental that live music should be an interactive experience. A typical Single Mothers show usually consists of sing alongs, crowd surfing, flying guitars and mosh pits. The sound itself is almost as fraught as the history of the band. Originally the brainchild of Andrew Thomson, the band set out to create loud catchy music and over it's course evolved into an amalgamation of punk, indie and post hardcore.

The band currently consists of Drew Thomson on vocals, Michael Peterson on lead guitar, Evan Redsky on bass, Justis Krar on rhythm guitar and Matt Bouchard on drums.

The sound takes root in fast rhythms and intricate drum work layered with powerful rhythm guitar and bass. the lead guitar is often melodic, dark and catchy while the vocals for the most part are harsh, anthematic and raspy. Lyrically the songs are characteristic of folk tales, as stories of drug deals, failed relationships and being broke are often reoccurring. The raunchy and sometimes offensive lyrics go hand in hand with the attitude and style of the band which possesses a great deal of irony as clearly represented in the band name. The mantra of the band will always be to have a good time and create enjoyable experiences both live and on recording with the hope of establishing an interaction between the listener and the band. They were formed in London, Ontario, Canada in 2009.
