Time is key for The Key Frames

The Toronto roots-rockers bring their well-honest first release *Out On The Point* east for the first time.


Welcome to the east, The Key Frames.

When it came to their debut album, time wasn't an issue for Toronto's The Key Frames. "We made a choice early that we wanted to be meticulous and give the songs their full due, even if it cost us more money and more time," says guitarist Rob Webster. "As up-and-comers that's not an easy call to make." Last May, nearly three years after their first sessions, Out on the Point came to fruition, showcasing 11 songs that hint at the country, blue grass and soul influences brought to the table by each of the band's five members. "We've never been hesitant to let quite different genres and styles cross-pollinate as we're putting songs together," says Webster. With the record out of the way, The Key Frames are making their first trip east and taking their Haligonian bassist Ryan Higgins home for a rest.
