In October of 1998, members of two successful Toronto bands merged to create a 4 Piece Rock Band. That band is Ebony Run.
Fans have shared in their excitement. Within weeks of their first performance, Ebony Run played to a sold-out crowd at the Elmoccambo, and released their first EP.
Sam Halonen and Denis Banko, former bassist and drummer for Three make up the rhythm section of this new band. With Victor Wooton influenced bass-lines, and a drum-prowess that so few bands have today, these two build a very strong rhythmical and strangely melodic foundation for this new music. Having played festivals with the likes of The Tea Party, Our Lady Peace, and The Barenaked Ladies, these guys can truly live up to the new standards that Ebony Run define.
Chris Macpherson makes his Gibson scream with delight after many years of entertaining sold out crowds at such venues as Mel Lastman Square, Kingswood Music Theatre and The Opera House in his former band Infinity.
Richard Fairthorne brings diverse vocal styling with a broad range of experience, including solo performances in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem at Toronto's Roy Thompson Hall. Richard wraps up the package with a sense of cohesiveness that comes from playing with orchestra's such as the Toronto Symphony, and a dark musical humor with strong influences from performers such as Maynard James Keenan (Tool) and Tory Amos.
