Album Notes
New album by the Nines, features unreleased studio songs, demos and rare import releases spanning 15 years and 4 full length albums.

Back Story: The first Nines LP, Wonderworld of Colourful, came out in Canada in 1998 on the Bare Naked Ladies’ Page label and was distributed through EMI. Later that year, Universal Music Canada released a piano-based four-song EP. This preliminary version of the band was sufficiently appealing to connect with the pop underground and top the Canadian college chart, but, as Eggers readily admits, the Nines were then still very much a work in progress. Still, this initial studio foray did offer a tantalizing glimpse of the young artist’s potential. The second Nines lineup cut Properties of Sound, released in North America in 2001 (Airmail Recordings picked up the album in Japan a year later). Additionally, several of Eggers’ songs wound up on network TV series, including Dawson's Creek, Party of Five and Joan of Arcadia (and most recently the theme song for Global Television's comedy sitcom "The Jane Show"). Picking up where the Beatles left off is a big challenge, but it can be done, as XTC, Jellyfish and Spoon have proved. The Nines belong in that rarefied company.

Some additional Press Reviews

“Dance Just For Me,” from Gran Jukle's Field, a collaboration with kindred ELO obsessive Bleu, may be the most heartbreakingly sincere lust letter to a stripper ever written - Magnet Magazine


" Steve Eggers has crafted a timeless album full of catchy hooks, superb production, and great playing... " - Keyboard Magazine

“ It seems that whenever a songwriter or band releases an album filled with uplifting melodies and pop hooks...a comparison to the Beatles is bandied about much like the weather between two strangers. Oftentimes the reference is ill-suited and convenient, but there is the odd occasion when it truly fits, which is certainly the case for the Toronto-based pop outfit, the Nines." – Inside Entertainment Magazine

“ A quintessential power-pop masterpiece…Steve Eggers is a genius…” The New York City Resident

“Few songwriters have the ability to delicately entwine melodies and chords that are immediately striking. Whether a ballad or a hard hitting rock up, Steve Eggers has been doing just that…” View Magazine
