ACROSS THE BOARD DISCOGRAPHY
ATB's debut album, "Jane On Fire" demonstrated the Toronto pop rockers' musical chemistry of smooth transitions, lush harmonies and infectious lead electric guitar riffs.
From a core genre of "pop rock" to a more rootsy, indie vibe; ATB offers the soul-soothing sing-along catchiness that is fast becoming the their signature sound. Since 2016, ATB has played to sold-out crowds at some of Toronto's more notable musical venues including, The Piston, Cameron House, The Opera House, Mod Club, The Bovine The Hideout, Revival and The Infamous Horseshoe Tavern--never failing to please live music fans and local crowds.

"Amends" was released in 2017 and marked the beginning of the band's first cross-Canada tour--in celebration of Canada 150. The three song concept album was kicked off by "Don't Drag Me Down"-- a retro-vibe surf rock track that was released on International Women's Day, March 8, 2017, on the heels of the global women's march in early 2017. Featured on the International Women's Day website, 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.
