Not long after the release of their debut EP, The Black River, the band was nominated for and won “Best Rock” at the 2018 Mississauga Music Awards and since then, won "Best Live Band" at the 2022 Mississauga Music Awards. Since their initial release, The Jailbirds have drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Deep Purple, Monster Truck, Royal Blood and other such bands. They have molded the rock genre into something entirely their own while absorbing influence from all kinds of genres and eras of music.
The Jailbirds are a force of nature that you need to pay attention to. Off the back of their 2021 concept EP ‘Jungle’, The Jailbirds have been featured on FM radio, Top Spotify Curated Playlists (such as Hard Rock/Rock Faves/Best Rock 2020) & online publications globally such as Guitar World Magazine. Recently the band went through a lineup change, and has emerged stronger than ever before, now featuring drummer Kevin Costa, and multi-instrumentalist Hayden Trafford, and founding members, guitarist & vocalist Myke Penney and bassist Liam Hills.
A band you need to see live, The Jailbirds are known for their on-stage heavy hitting sound and their love of a good, loud rock show. What you can expect from The Jailbirds is a sound that is Nostalgic Yet Fresh. Pulling influence from Rock n’ Roll legends of the past 60+ years. Old School meets new School, the best of both worlds.
