Formation and self-titled EP (2007–2012)

The Balconies are a pop/rock band composed of lead singer and guitarist, Jacquie Neville and her brother Stephen Neville who have been playing music together since their early teens. Jacquie met former boyfriend, Liam Jaeger,[1] at the University of Ottawa in 2005 while they were both studying classical music, but it wasn’t until the end of 2007 that the group formed.[2] The Balconies released their first self-titled EP in 2009 recorded and produced by Carlin Nicholson of indie rock band, Zeus.[3] In late 2010, the band relocated and moved to Toronto. The Balconies won Live 88.5's Big Money Shot which gave them a development package of $75,000, workshops with other music industry leaders, radio airplay, and numerous performance opportunities.[4] Upon winning the development package, The Balconies were able to work with recording producer/engineer, Jon Drew to release an EP titled Kill Count in 2012. The Balconies also have done extensive touring and they were also able to be a part of many North American music festivals such as South by Southwest in 2012 and 2013,[5] Canadian Music Week,[6] North by North East[7] Blues Fest 2012 & 2013(in Ottawa), and Culture Collide & CMJ (New York).[8] The band is currently working on new material.

Touring Europe (2013)

In 2013, the music video for their single, "The Slo" premiered on ION Magazine [9] and AltSounds.[10] That same year, The Balconies had some notable international performances, performing at MIDEM in Cannes, France,[11] Liverpool Sound City in Liverpool, UK,[12] Brighton's The Great Escape in Brighton, UK.[13] The Balconies also continued to tour Europe that year, opening for rock band, Rival Sons.[14]

Their latest album, Fast Motions, was released via Coalition Music (Records)/Warner Music Canada on January 28, 2014 and produced by Arnold Lanni.[15]

Sharing the stage

They’ve shared the stage with bands such as Cold War Kids, Mother Mother, Devo, Peter Bjorn and John, USS, Sloan, Stars, Wide Mouth Mason, Big Sugar, Tokyo Police Club, Bad Religion, and The Sam Roberts Band.

Television debut

The Balconies made their television debut on the second season of CBC's, Cracked. The second episode of the season, The Price, features The Balconies getting caught in a shooting at a downtown nightclub, and the episode is based on finding the murderer.[16] The episode aired October 7, 2013.[17]
