Bio

Remedy, a funk-rock trio out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, formed in 2008, is made up of Steve Harley (singer/guitarist), James Bond (bass) and Gil Roy (drums),

It all began when Steve and James divorced their wives within 3 months of each other and found themselves living in the same apartment building. They began composing and recording as they had put music aside once before. During that time period their recordings were filled with lyrical and emotional prowess in relation to their divorce situations. In what began as a way to escape the oain of divorce-related seperation from his infant son, Steve then began to fall victim to a growing prescription narcotic addiction, which was unknown to his bandmate (Bond) who came up with the band's Rx logo. It had more truth to it than he could've known. Steve is now 3 years clean, but retains the logo on his guitar as a to acknowledge the historical irony, and as reminder of life's precious fragility.
released their debut album, "Paleofidelity", in the spring of 2009. Their first single, "Up from the bottom" was played on at least 50 commercial and college radio stations from coast to coast. Four months later, the band had it's second nation-wide radio single, "Rude Reaction". This East Coast
Countdown producer's pick became one of only 2 Canadian tracks to be featured on RadioRnR's CD compilation "New Faces, New Music", available worldwide January 2010. Remedy was awarded a SXSW showcase through RadioRnR and through the Recording Artist's Guild as well.
Paleofedelity was followed by their second full-length album titled The Tyranny of the Smug which showcases the bands evolution in songwriting.
