Barenaked Ladies - Canada

Overview

Barenaked Ladies Are: Experienced.

Having toughed it out for over 15 years, this five-piece Toronto based band has witnessed births, marriages, deaths and near-death experiences in addition to their prodigious professional accomplishments. They are also a top concert attraction and musicianship has been one of the band’s founding principles ever since they started out, in their teens, at a Summer Music Camp in Ontario, Canada.

Barenaked Ladies Are: Prolific.

Their very first recorded output, “The Yellow Tape” was a self-produced, home-marketed five-song cassette, which went Gold in Canada setting their native recording industry on its ear and triggering a do-it-yourself “indie” revolution in the 90’s. Over the next decade and a half, BNL have amassed an impressive catalogue, from their precocious debut Gordon and career making live album Rock Spectacle to their multi-platinum breakthrough Stunt and its follow-up Maroon. Mixing socially conscious observations with crafty lyrics, BNL have racked up memorable hits like “Pinch Me,” “If I Had A Million Dollars,” “Brian Wilson,” “The Old Apartment,” “Too Little Too Late,” “Falling For The First Time” and the Billboard Number One Hit, “One Week.”

SNACKTIME is Barenaked Ladies first collection of original children's songs. The album was produced and mixed by Michael Phillip Wojewoda, who also worked with the band on their debut Gordon.

"Our collective kids now outnumber the band more than 2 to 1," explains vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson. "We set out to make a record that would be entertaining for them…not strictly a children's record, but a record that children would really enjoy. Our kids are in to all kinds of music. They love the They Might Be Giants kids records, but they also love The Beatles, Fountains of Wayne, Randy Newman, Black Eyed Peas and Green Day. Making the focus about what our kids like was a truly liberating process and fun for the whole band."

Barenaked Ladies will return to the studio later this year to start work on their next full-length album that will celebrate 20 years together.
