New City Debut “Getting Closer”
We’ve found your new favorite Canadians, NEW CITY. Check out their latest lyric video for their single “Getting Closer”. The trio is made up of Adrian Mitchell (vocals), Jed Webster (guitar, programming) and Nathan Brown (drums, programming). The band was formed last year from two separate projects.
Webster and Brown are lifelong friends who grew up together in the small farming community of Sussex, New Brunswick; Webster’s dad fed him a steady diet of blues guitar heroes (Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Muddy Waters), while Brown was more focused on rock groups before discovering electronic music in high school. The pair took a big leap and moved to Toronto, sleeping on a basement floor for two years and working on music every day. They met R&B fan Mitchell, who was born in Oro-Medonte in central Ontario, trying to make it as a solo artist, at a hotel party and quickly joined forces.
