The Young Record Breakers

What’s great about music is that it doesn’t have an age limit. You can never be too young or too old. As long you as you’re making something musical that’s acceptable by, at least, a group of people then that’s it – you’ve done it.

Young age definitely didn’t stop five teenagers from the West Island of Montreal to get together and show the world what they’re capable of. With an average age of 16, schoolmates Hayden, Bella, Devan, Julian and Michael formed The Record Breakers. A band inspired by the sounds of blues, rock, country and pop. They’re also known for playing cover songs from The Beatles, Chuck Berry, Blue Rodeo, and Fleetwood Mac, to name a few.


They’ve made top 25 in the Montreal CBC Searchlight in 2015 and have performed in 35 shows this past year, such as in Strangers in The Night 11, a fundraising gala where they get to meet one of their inspirations, Blue Rodeo. They’ve also performed at The Montreal Folk Festival, West Island RibFest, Flavours of Monkland Street Festival and Saint Anne de Bellevue Boardwalk Summer Concerts after they won Battle of The Bands.

They started this year by releasing their debut extended play (EP) album in March. Obviously, these young talents still have a long musical way to go. Rewind is one of their original songs in the EP, and you can hear it here:
