    Taking Balfour

    Taking Balfour

    Genre of Music: Alternative Rock

    Founded in 2020, Taking Balfour swiftly
    became a local sensation, propelled by
    their magnetic sound and electrifying
    performances. The band’s unique blend
    of alternative rock and indie influences
    set them apart, drawing in a diverse
    audience hungry for fresh and innovative
    sounds.

    It wasn’t long before Taking Balfour was moving from small shows to playing
    bigger stages and opening for bands like Buckcherry, and headlining events like
    Gainfest and Kronik Kristmas.
    The band’s ascendancy was punctuated by the
    release of their second album, “Dawn of Polaris,”
    featuring emotionally charged, soaring vocals
    and infectious guitar riffs.
    This pivotal release showcased Taking Balfour’s
    evolution, intertwining commanding percussion,
    thunderous basslines, and captivating keys into
    their sonic tapestry. It solidified their status as a
    rising force, leaving an indelible mark on the
    vibrant local music scene.

    Having embarked on a tour across Ontario and
    Quebec with Jupiter Hollow in 2023, Taking Balfour
    is eagerly anticipating new releases and bigger
    shows in 2024, promising an exhilarating
    continuation of their musical journey.
