  • Eamon McGrath is a Canadian musician and writer from Edmonton, Alberta and currently based in Toronto. On his own, his live performances are most often folk-oriented, where McGrath plays songs from his discography on acoustic instruments, but with a band the live show takes on a much more high-energy, punk rock influenced vein. McGrath records primarily on his own at his home in Toronto and releases albums independently in Canada and through a number of record labels, including Canada's White Whale Records who signed McGrath at the tail end of 2008. 2008 also saw McGrath begin a rigid touring schedule which continued up until the end of 2014. Young Canadians was released on April 10, 2012. The record is produced by David Carswell and John Collins of The Evaporators. In 2012, McGrath performed at Sackville, NB's Sappyfest 7 with Chris Thompson, Julie Doiron and Mark Gaudet of Eric's Trip playing songs from Young Canadians. McGrath also occasionally collaborates with Doiron and members of the Cancer Bats in Julie Doiron & The Wrong Guys, featuring newer, louder renditions of Doiron's songs. Exile, the follow-up to Young Canadians, was released in the form of three separate digital EPs over the course of nine months, concluding with a full LP in September 2014. Exile - Part One was released on October 15, 2013 followed by the 2nd installment in March, 2014 while the full-length conclusion was released digitally and in LP format on September 9, 2014. A Canadian and European tour followed. Alongside Dan Mangan, Rae Spoon and Gavin Gardiner of The Wooden Sky, McGrath scored music for North Country Cinema's feature film The Valley Below, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2014. On October 21, 2014 Toronto's New Damage Records released a split 7" by Eamon McGrath and Edmonton-based punk band SLATES, where both artists cover each other's material. McGrath is currently completing his first book, a fictionalized tour memoir entitled Berlin-Warszawa Express, set for release spring 2017 on ECW Press.
