Hailing from St. John’s, NFLD, electro-pop/rock band Repartee is embarking on their very first cross-Canada tour, which includes Fernie this Saturday at the Northern. With an electric live show, hooky melodies and poignant, honest lyrics, Repartee is guaranteed to get people dancing nationwide as they tour in support of their latest EP ‘Hello Hello Hello’.

Before she started Repartee, lead singer Meg Warren was a frustrated opera singer. She loved music, but hated the formality. So, of course, she started a synth-pop band. Makes sense, right? Repartee played their first gig in St. John’s in 2009 and while a lot has changed since then, one thing remains the same – Repartee want to make you dance.

Repartee’s career has been steadily growing over the past four years with the addition of members Robbie Brett (The Pre-Raphaelites, Hear/Say), Nick Coultas-Clarke and Josh Banfield (Catcher). Named the Newfoundland Herald’s prestigious ‘Band To Watch’ for 2011, Repartee has worked hard to live up to the name. Their self-titled debut album was released to critical acclaim in 2011, and was short-listed at the 2011 Atlantis Music Prize for the best album released in Newfoundland that year.

Repartee released their ‘Hello Hello Hello’ EP in late 2012 and have spent the last year feverishly and passionately touring. Aiming to expand their fan-base outside of Newfoundland, they’ve showcased at the Halifax Pop Explosion, the East Coast Music Awards and Canadian Music Week. They’ve shared the stage with Arkells, Mother Mother, Hey Rosetta, USS, and Jenn Grant.

In 2012, they won five MusicNL Awards – FACTOR Album of the Year, Group of the Year, Rising Star, Fan Choice Entertainer of the Year and Pop/Rock Artist of the Year. Repartee were also nominated for Rising Star Recording of the Year at the 2013 East Coast Music Awards where they performed at the ECMA Gala along with Classified, Ashley MacIsaac and Rich Aucoin.

Repartee is a band that is about to explode, so don’t miss your chance to see them live on November 16 at The Northern in Fernie.
