Biography

Matt Mays & El Torpedo is a Canadian rock band based in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia and New York City. It consists of Matt Mays (guitar, vocals), Rob Crowell (keys, vocals), Jay Smith (guitar, vocals), Tim Baker (drums) and Andy Patil (bass, vocals).

Born out of the release of Matt Mays’ debut solo album (Matt Mays Sonic Records 2002), El Torpedo began playing a steady line up of shows in their native Nova Scotia. Flooring audience after audience in crowded bars around the province, the band quickly proved them selves to be one of the premiere live acts in the area.

Skip forward three years and that claim can be extended to the entire country. Through playing a series of national tours with artists such as Sam Roberts and Blue Rodeo, MM&ET have spread their own gospel, converting people of all ages into devoted fans.

With Patil and Baker’s driving rhythms pushing the squalls of Murphy and Mays’ dual guitar attack, the band’s sound is a soulful eruption of roots rock, mixing the likes of early Bruce Springsteen,Tom Petty,George Thorogood,and Steve Earle. While talent stands as the band’s backbone, MM&ET posses that indefinable element that carries a band’s music beyond the sum of its’ parts. “It’s one of those things that you couldn’t really construct with anyone,” claims Mays’ of the band’s chemistry. “It’s a really natural solidification in music of four friends who like, listen to and laugh at all the same things.”
