Busty and the Bass have spent a decade building toward the release of ‘Eddie’, their sophomore full length set to be released on Arts & Crafts in 2020. Transforming from an instrumental campus party band to playing at international festivals and selling out theatres across North America, the band rallied around friendship, a love for performing music, and a focus to uplift listeners to make a true statement album. ‘Eddie’ pulls from a 50 year history of soul, funk, and jazz that distills it into a singular record which feels both timeless and of-the-moment: Old school legends of the form like George Clinton (Parliament Funkadelic) and Macy Gray lend their talents, along with GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Neal Pogue (Earth, Wind & Fire, Outkast, Tyler the Creator), creating an album full of new school sounds that shares a lane with contemporaries Anderson .Paak and Free Nationals Everything initially happened so fast. The multinational collective - composed of three Americans, three Canadians, and two Canadian-American dual citizens - met during their first week as students in the jazz program at McGill University in Montreal and jumped right into regular performances throughout the city. As an instrumental act, they capitalized on any and every gig, taking $100 for a three-hour set or exchanging tunes for wine and hors d’oeuvres at a cocktail party. Performing for the pure joy of it. Riding grooves, building a community. Eventually incorporating vocals, they quietly asserted themselves among Canada’s most-beloved live bands with marathon touring and invites to international festivals like Made In America (USA) and 2Q Festival (UK). Over the years, the band released two EPs—GLAM [2015] and LIFT [2016]—and 2017 full-length debut, Uncommon Good. These albums were developed directly from the live show, translating many of the fan-favorite jams into loose song structures on the record. Nevertheless, these releases still resonated to the tune of 20 million-plus streams worldwide. In 2018, rather than leap right from the stage to the studio again, they took a break and hunkered down to properly write an album for the first time. Instead of pinning the songs to “instrumental vibes” like past recordings, members penned songs individually and presented them to the larger collective, giving birth to their proper 2020 debut, ‘Eddie’. “We took one-week or two-week stretches and wrote by ourselves, and then we came together for three uninterrupted weeks in the studio,” recalls Scott Bevins (trumpet). “Uncommon Good was like a patchwork. On ‘Eddie’, we had fully fleshed out ideas for the first time.”
