biographical info

After more than a decade of releasing albums on some of the most seminal labels in Canada – Three Gut Records, which he helped form, and Arts & Crafts – and touring the world, Reg Vermue is set to release album number five.

The pedigree of Gentleman Reg is beyond extensive at this point and has included over the years current and ex-members of bands such as Arcade Fire, Islands, Constantines, Great Lake Swimmers, The Weakerthans, Ohbijou, The Unicorns, Royal City, The Hidden Cameras, Owen Pallett, to name a few!

Gentleman Reg has earned some bragging rights.

Reg has dueted with Nina Persson from the Cardigans all over North America, sung Fleetwood Mac covers with Sarah Harmer, sung Mariah Carey covers with Owen Pallett, once performed his song ‘The Boyfriend Song’ during Feist’ set in Paris at her request, and was once rescued by all of Broken Social Scene while being harassed by some drunk frat boys in Leuven.

These are the situations you get into when you’ve been around. Leisure Life is the sound of someone who’s been around.

Leisure Life is the first record to be released on Gentleman Reg’s own label, Heavy Head Records. And the first Gentleman Reg album to be recorded with one consistent line up, dubbed ‘The Sunglass Nights’ and comprised of Kelly McMicheal (Rouge), Jon Hynes (Hidden Cameras), James Bunton (Ohbijou). It will be released as three EP records starting in July, with the final, complete full-length due in the Fall.

Reg is an on again off again member of The Hidden Cameras and launched another band called Light Fires with James Bunton who released their debut single in 2011 and toured extensively throughout Europe and Canada.
