ABOUT THE BAND
IT STARTED WITH -
A unique blend of diverse musical influences...
Toronto’s Neon Bloom began in early 2017 in a backyard garage in the Annex. Members include vocalist Jen Simpson, guitarist Simon Chow and a rhythm section consisting of Fred Yurichuk on bass and Chris Romano on drums. Together they create Neon Bloom. From modern electronica to 70s punk, 80s New Wave, 90s grunge and 50s Doo Wop, Neon Bloom is a unique blend of these diverse influences.
The band has quickly made an impression on the Toronto music scene with their energetic live performances and focused songwriting.
In Oct 2018 they released their debut EP First Fever with Toronto producer Rob Sanzo (Signal to Noise Studios, Bedouin Soundclash, Joe Strummer, more…). 2018 has also seen the band expanding out from Toronto, playing festival stages in Taiwan for the Spring Scream festival as well touring Ontario and Quebec.
Though a new band in this incarnation, Neon Bloom consists of seasoned musicians. Singer Jen Simpson led the all-girl punk rock outfit Machetes, managed by Roger O’Donnell (the Cure,
more…) and New York’s The Never Evers. While Fred has toured in New York, Brazil, and Asia with Girl + the Machine.
