Vancouver, Canada (2005 – 2008)

The Sessions was a band from Vancouver, Canada consisting of Josh Helgason, Tristan Norton, Tobias Jesso and Martin Kottmeier. The Sessions were expected to accomplish big things due to their ever increasing popularity and notoriety, which was mostly contained to their hometown of Vancouver, Canada due to their lack of major touring. They did, however, make single appearances in some distant lands such as Rothenburg, Germany - Montreal, Canada - and Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Las Vegas in the USA.

In the winter of 2005/2006 the band entered a competition along with 7,600 other bands from around the world. It’s an annual battle-of-the-bands called Emergenza and this was the first year Emergenza had opened it’s doors to North American bands, having previously only accepted European bands. By the summer of 2006 the band had won it’s way through intense and suspenseful battles across Canada winning the west coast battle in Vancouver, the western Canadian battle in Calgary and finally the national finals in Montreal Canada which sent The Sessions off to Rothenburg, Germany. They would win the grand prize, a month in a recording studio called The Roasting House Studios in Malmo, Sweden as well as Ernie Ball Music Man guitars. They became the first North American band to win the competition, and then they were faced with one of the hardest decisions of their lives.

    Did you guys break up or did you not? I read that you broke up in May 2008 but this page says that you still have shows you're playing. Please tell me you guys are still together. I see you being as big as The Bravery or The Killers, and I can't stop listening to your last album.
