Across The Board (ATB) is a Canadian alt pop rock band of multi-instrumentalist musicians who seamlessly combine creative talents to push their pop-rock sounds to the edge of the rock 'n roll envelope with rootsie influences from country, classic rock and blues that create the band's Americana crossover signature sound.
With harmonious power vocals, catchy electric guitar riffs and heart breaking, gut shaking, knee-buckling beats, Across The Board brings a high energy show to live audiences and uniquely clever videos to their growing Youtube channel of over 160 videos.
ATB's debut album, "Jane On Fire" demonstrates the Toronto pop rockers' musical chemistry of smooth transitions, lush harmonies and infectious lead electric guitar riffs.
Across The Board recently finished their coast to coast national tour by air and rails from Aug 19 through Sept 2--celebrating Canada's 150th birthday.

“Broken In Time”, is a catchy upbeat pop/rock/Americana track that encourages the listener to focus on today and stop trying to relive old glory days or go back in time to correct past mistakes. Released at a time when the world is remembering their own high school and college days as new graduates plan their futures, “Broken In Time” reflects on the importance of living in the moment, making amends with oneself and leaving the past where it belongs—in the rear-view mirror.
'Jane On Fire" not only elevates the genre of "pop rock" to a more rootsy, indie vibe; but offers the soul-soothing sing-along catchiness that is fast becoming the ATB's signature sound. ATB recently played to sold-out crowds at some of Toronto's more notable musical venues including, The Piston, Cameron House, The Opera House, Cavern Bar, Revival and The Infamous Horseshoe Tavern--never failing to please live music fans and local crowds.

The song presents a message of strength and resolve to stand up to bullies and policy-makers who would marginalize or repress those without a strong voice.
