Vesuvio Solo Favors - AC26
Vesuvio Solo is an experimental pop band emerging from a group of friends coalesced around the Banko Gotiti label. The group spoke to celebrated Compass point keyboardist Wally Baradou asking for his blessing when naming their band after his 1989 song and received this endorsement.
Founding members Thom Gillies and Cam MacLean are veterans of Montreal groups TOPS and Pat Jordache.
On their debut album “Favors”, the duo made recording filled with dynamic synth lines., rich vocal harmonies and spoken word. Newest member Zac Macarthur on keyboards now brings his own voice as co-writer and the band is currently in studio recording their second LP for release in fall 2015. Vesuvio Solo’s current performing lineup also features Montreal artist Karneef on drums.
