About Cut Throat Kids
There’s no pretense surrounding Cut Throat Kids; their primary concern is simply to entertain, to reach an audience looking for sharp, catchy and concise pop/alternative songs that instantly grab your attention and don’t let go until they’re finished.
Their sound refined and their ambitions big, the foursome have already begun to establish a burgeoning reputation, playing shows in and around Ontario. The band is comprised of (in alphabetical order) drummer Calvin Castellino, bassist Nick Chang-Fong, guitarist Jeff Raposo and vocalist Tyler Tasson, all hailing within the Toronto city limits.
The band’s cohesiveness (along with their uncanny ability to read each other onstage and in the practice space) results in an energetic and professional live performance. When you go to see them, you get a band whose attention to craft, youthful exuberance, and practiced approach to live music is instantly apparent.
“…buoyant and catchy, with a tinge of punk thrown in for good measure” – Chris Clay, The Mississauga News
“…they successfully pull off a set of fun songs that follow unconventional formulas and rhythms…their music doesn’t sound like Josie and the Pussycats pop. There’s a lot of rock ‘n’ roll edge that is greatly appreciated.” – Sheena Lyonnais, TorontoMusicScene.ca
“Catchy melodies that wander your head for ages. Cut Throat Kids bring back the music that you cant wait to listen to over and over again!” – Jessica Di Loreto, Acid City Magazine
