Their debut album, Everything I've Forgotten to Forget, was released on Pop Culture Records in 2007, and an EP, My What Big Teeth You Have followed in 2009 on Sunday School Music.

History

Amos the Transparent is the brainchild of Ottawa songwriter Jonathan Chandler. Chandler teamed up with drummer and primary collaborator, Christopher Wilson to solidify material that was written over a period of several years commencing in 2005. The duo applied a collective approach to the recording process of their debut Everything I've Forgotten to Forget, drawing out the influences and talents of numerous guest artists including Amy Millan of Stars, who makes a special guest vocal appearance on the duet "After All That, It's Come to This", and also Evan Cranley, also of Stars.

Touring and performance

The band have toured with Patrick Watson, Tokyo Police Club, Mother Mother, The Dears, Jeff Beck, The Reason, Basia Bulat, Sloan and the Inbreds.

In 2008, to honour Canadian hall of famer Alanis Morissette, the band performed their melancholy version of her hit song "You Oughta Know" at a live concert at the National Arts Centre, in Ottawa which was later broadcast on CBC Radio[3] across Canada.

Amos the Transparent have recorded three in-studio sessions with The Verge.[4] They were the musical guest on CBC Radio One's Q on February 17, 2012, days after the release of their second full length album, Goodnight My Dear...I'm Falling Apart.
