Partner is funny, but not a joke. Gay, but not for each other.
Partner is the "mature" effort of two best friends named Josée Caron and Lucy Niles. Borne of their fortuitous friendship, Partner confidently harnesses the infinite power of Rock to explore a variety of niche yet strangely universal themes.
The two met while attending Mount Allison University in small town Sackville, New Brunswick, on Canada's East Coast.
The duo played in numerous Sackville bands together over their University years. Around mid 2014 the idea of Partner came to fruition.
Influenced by acts as varied as Tegan and Sara, Melissa Etheridge, Ween, kd lang, and Aerosmith, Partner delivers a refreshing and vital twist on a classic, prompting you to re-think what you thought was possible in Rock.
