We are Open Wide Music. We are what you love about music.
We focus on the sounds of classic rock & roll, but we draw inspiration from many genres of music.
With each member bringing different styles to the table, the music that comes out is original, interesting and good.
From Regina, SK, Chris Munro (guitar & vocals) brings his taste for Rock and Alternative like The Black Crowes and Zappa.
From Fredericton, NB, James Lockhart (vocals, keys & guitar) likes the Alternative music like Radiohead but also a little Sinatra.
From Tweed, ON, Matt “Tweed” Jones (drums)
brings in a country flavour like Willie Nelson or The Band.
From Simcoe, ON, Andy Wright (bass and Shredder) brings his love of 80's rock like Van Halen and The Police.
From Cape Breton, NS, Sean Coleman, multiinstrumentalist, songwriter and abstract thinker will always be missed.
Our Guru, Don Garbutt is a Gold Record-winning electronic music composer and producer. He has provided technical consultation and music production for many top artists including Oscar Peterson, Procol Harum, Pink Floyd and David Foster.
We met each other in 1999 studying music production. We formed as a band in 2001 and spent the first 2 years living in an apartment in downtown Toronto, where we continuously wrote and perfected our songs.
OWM released their debut album, Versi¨un 01, in 2004. We recorded, mixed, and produced it ourselves. This first album also includes many guest performances by friends and mentors.
In 2006, recording sessions occurred in the home of Chris, Tweed and Sean. Out of that came "Anthropic", a stellar 5-song EP.
Most members of OWM have had kids and built successful careers and understandably have little spare time.
We are all in touch and work on new and old stuff is still being done as we speak, we have at least 2 albums worth of new tunes.
So make sure to keep tuned in and check us out on most social media platforms and streaming services...
