It's been a long but steady climb since FATHEAD's debut CD in 1995, and the band has been tearing it up on the North American festival circuit ever since - winning over new fans every time they play - making FATHEAD one of the country's top roots acts.

Caught here live on Queen Street at the Toronto Beaches Jazz Festival in July these guys know how to entertain!

Signed to the world renowned ELECTRO-FI RECORDS' imprint, their latest release "BUILDING FULL OF BLUES" garnered them a second coveted JUNO AWARD (Canada's "GRAMMY") in 2008 for "Blues Recording Of The Year".

That they have been described as a Blues Tour De Force comes as no surprise. Georgia-raised lead singer JOHN MAYS has had a storied career that began in the Southern gospel tradition, crossing over into Doo-Wop, R&B and Blues, not to mention a stint with the Godfather Of Soul JAMES BROWN.
Along
with band leader AL LERMAN (harp and saxophone) FATHEAD's core has remained constant since 1992, offering ace musicianship, soul stirring harmonies and incendiary live performances. The writing tandem of Lerman and bassist OMAR TUNNOCH have produced an impressive body of work.. Guitar ace TEDDY LEONARD is back and better than ever, along with iconic drummer BUCKY BERGER (he has played with many Candian icons from Rough Trade to childrens' entertainer Mister Dressup).

Their indie debut CD "Fathead" was first released in 1995 and landed them the recording contract with Electro-Fi. "Blues Weather" followed in 1998 garnering a Juno Award (Canada's Grammy) for Blues Recording Of The Year. "Where's Your Head At?" was next in 2000, earning several Maple Blues Award noms, while "First Class Riff-Raff" received a Canadian Indie Award (2002) as well as a Juno nomination. "Livelier Than Ever!" was independently released in 2005, and captured the band in full throttle. FATHEAD was also the featured backing band for the late Chicago bluesman Little Mack Simmons on two critically acclaimed discs.
