Formed in early 2019, SHOUT! the band began as a small busking band in Toronto, spending their free time sharing their love of music with people in unexpected settings. These early “guerilla concerts” quickly exploded as the band grew in both size and popularity, with SHOUT! expanding to a full 12 piece band, garnering international attention for their iconic sound and energy, while the band transitioned from street corners, to stages and festivals, playing at venues all across Canada. SHOUT!’s iconic sound is rooted in New Orleans music and culture, mixed with a diverse and eclectic range of musical and cultural backgrounds; combining jazz and western popular music with harmonic and rhythmic techniques borrowed from all across Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America. SHOUT!’s members are deeply rooted in the Canadian jazz community, having worked with legendary artists like Herbie Hancock, Jon Batiste, and Hugh Masekela, while also working with international artists across countless other genres, including Omi, Shawn Mendes, Freddie Gibbs, and the Wu-Tang clan.

The band’s legendary performances have drawn the attention of major players, leading to shows with artists like Benny Benack III, Lex Leosis, and Anderson .Paak, just to name a few, while members of the band have continued to perform at legendary festivals and venues like Massey Hall, History, The Budweiser Stage, Coachella, and The International AmoFest in Ghana. Several of the band’s members are even recipients of prestigious international awards and nominations, including a 2024 Grammy nomination, with BadBadNotGood.
