ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Big Bay EP was released in April 2005 and is their 2nd release. Produced and recorded by the band themselves and released on their own label Little Wagon Records. The new album promises a slightly different side of Elvyn. Sighting a country tinged sound with tasty Beach Boy styled harmonies as the influence for the album. (Limited Release of only 500 Copies)

A great compliment to the summer months.

*The EP comes three years after Ten Car Stereo, the groups first full-length disc, was released.
"We had four kick-ass songs that we really wanted to put on and just get out there and have people listening to it rather than just sitting around waiting for a whole album to happen", said lead vocalist Joel Beerman in a recent interview.
The Big Bay is an attempt at radio friendly material as the group begins to focus on an alt-country sound.
"We've always been huge fans of Hank Williams, even Kenny Rogers," said Beerman. "It's fun to play. It's fun music. You get the slide guitars in there, the steel guitar. It's great." -THE SAULT STAR (Interview)

This is the story of ELVYN:

Elvyn was originally formed in Peterborough, Ontario (Canada) and has been delivering fantastic well crafted and perfect Pop songs since 1998 to present.

If you were trying to find the Elvyn boys right now, you would find them in some dingy little bar or club singing and playing there hearts out. It wasn't always like that however. Joel & Ryan Beerman (Co-founders of the group & real brothers) never really intended to ever perform or play the music they were creating, they originally just wanted to write and record a bunch of songs together on their co-owned fostex 4 track in their parents basement, just to see if they could do it. After they had finished an 11 song demo tape, they hit the playback button. The songs were well written, catchy and just plain good tunes. There was no doubt, these songs needed to be played live. After a few months of rehearsing together as a duo, it became evident that the songs would be better suited for a full band set-up.

By the end of 1998 they had recruited Bass player Jason O'Reilly to help round out there sound. After months of rehearsals they began playing the songs live and also released a three song demo Cd entitled "As Dark as it is" which would tie them over until they had time and money to record a full-length album. The rest is history.....at the start of 2000 they recruited Dean O'Reilly (Jason's brother) for the role of rythym guitarist (who would later be replaced by a new rythym guitarist Jeremy Knibbs in September of 2004).

In 2002 they recorded and released their first full length album entitled "Ten Car Stereo", which was well received by newspapers and college radio stations across Canada. With Ten car stereo accomplished they followed up with non-stop shows which would include a Canadian East coast tour.

Block off 15 minutes of your day and press play, it'll be time well spent.....

Enjoy!

The Neil Young & Crazy Horse influence is obvious
A quartet of songs which leaves you wanting more. The rhythm section of Joel Beerman on drums and Jason O’Reilly on bass provides a fitting backdrop for the slow hand guitar stylings of front man Ryan Beerman. Ryan creates an atmosphere with his tone control and playing that is reminiscent of Neil Young during some of his finest works with his part time band Crazy Horse in the early 90’s.

for fans of; sam roberts, the trews, matt mays and teenage fanclub
really good little record. saw them with matt mays in peterborough the other week. they played the songs from the big bay record along with a couple from the old disc, but it was a couple of the relly new ones that stuck with me. all in all a great e.p. from a really solid canadian band. they'll go far.

Album is AMAZING.
Rockin' vocals and kick ass sound, these guys bring back the sounds of the past, in this rockin 4 song mini. I am just sorry it ended, way too short!! It was the best album I have heard in a long time. Super catchy tunes that keeps you wanting more. AWESOME.

Sugary sweet!
I absolutley dig this band's sound! I don't know what sort of guitar equipment they use, or if they have a really good tech but WOW. Great songs, super-hooky, sweet tones, spot-on drums and bass. Now I'd love to hear them really rock out on a record like they do live. They remind me of people like The Jayhawks, The Waxwings and Dwight Twilley. They deserve far more attention than they get in the Toronto area for their live shows. I've seen them a few times now in great rooms like the horseshoe, where they sound great and in crappy little bars where they do their own sound, and still sound incredible. GET INTO THIS BAND!
