biographical info

Zeus was born from the musical friendship of Mike O'Brien and Carlin Nicholson. The two Toronto-based musicians made their name as the backing band for fellow Arts & Crafts singer/songwriter/ Broken Social Scene member Jason Collett. With a lineup rounded out by longtime friends and musical compatriots Rob Drake and Neil Quin, Zeus draws upon classic influences to craft timeless songs, complete with fuzzed out guitars and shimmering harmonies. The band's latest LP, the unapologetically titled Classic Zeus, is the band's most heartfelt and concise effort to date, incorporating the shimmering pop of "Miss My Friends" and "27 Is The New 17" in unison with future throwbacks like "Everybody's Got One" and "Straight Through The Light".
