July Talk is the story of two different voices

E-mail Print PDF

Toronto based county/ rock / alternative rock band July Talk is a study in contrasts between co-front July Talk return to Lethbridge, Nov. 10. Photo Submittedpersons Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay.
“ We have two very different voices. We’re two very opposite forces which is important to present two sides of the story,” described Peter Dreimanis, watching the updates of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s crack smoking tape unfold.
July Talk play the Slice, Nov. 10 with Thomas D’Arcy. Tickets are $10.

“ The July Talk sound is definitely different. I look at it as a conversation between the two of us. It’s black and white but all five us fill in the grey. It’s chaotic and dramatic. We present the two sides of  a conversation. But we’re definitely about catching people off guard,” he said.
 The band formed after Dreimanis met Leah Fay at a guitar pull in a Toronto basement bar and  immediately took to her voice and her music.
 Ian Docherty, Josh Warburton and Danny Miles complete the band.

Dreimanis grew up in Edmonton, which is where some of the band’s country influences come from.
“ I definitely grew up with barn burning setting. But there is plenty of rock and roll. When I grew up we’d have bands like the Constantines coming through town and I’d go to see them,” he said.

 The band’s songwriting process is very much a collaboration, though it focuses on  the stories of Dreimanis and Fay’s storytelling.

“It’s a highly edited process. If we have an idea and we feel we have to turn it on it’s head, we will,” he said.
 July Talk and Thomas D’Arcy play the Slice, Nov. 10 at approximately 9:30 p.m.
 There is a $10 cover for the show.
