The Artist Life

Average Rating:

Hometown: Toronto, ON (Canada)


If you've been searching for a cred–oozing pop–punk band that features a high–school English teacher, a Nickelodean TV star, four long–time friends and former members of a grocery list of defining bands from Southern Ontario's fertile rock 'n' roll grounds, you've shown up to the right party. Toronto's the Artist Life have been playing their suburb–raised brand of pop–punk across Canada for just over a year, and they're already snagging attention from all the right places for all the right reasons.
