The Record Breakers are a Canadian pop-country band who sing about cars instead of trucks. Formed in 2014 for a Beatles-related celebration, the band began to explore and develop their identity. A special encounter with Blue Rodeo inspired them to bring country into their sound, which has become uniquely that of The Record Breakers. Like some of history's greatest bands, The Record Breakers feature two main vocalists and song-writers, Hayden and Bella. Coupled with solid musical arrangements, memorable hooks and big harmonies, the end result is diverse and engaging.
Following their 2016 self-titled debut EP, the band released their second album, Bigger Plans, in June of 2018. Most notably, The Record Breakers opened for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Bon Jovi, at the Montreal Bell Centre in May of 2018. The band marks that as “an opportunity of a lifetime.” In 2019, they were crowned "Discovery of The Year" at Festival New Country Brome and in 2020 they were selected by CBC Searchlight to be in their Top 50 Producer Picks.
During the 2020 pandemic, the group wrote and released “Quarantine With You," a song and collaborative video, deemed a “viral success” by Global News Montreal. Following their success, the band released their first bilingual release, “In My Car / Dans mon char,” which debuted at the #1 spot on Amazon Music’s “Country du moment” playlist and "Winter," which debuted on Spotify's official playlist, "Christmas in Canada".
“ Bon Jovi’s effort to give a platform to local support acts is pure class, and the Record Breakers made the most of their contest win with a buoyant four-song showcase. Their confident melodic smarts weren’t out of place in the dauntingly large venue, and the twangy undertones and engaging harmonies were solid hooks on which to hang a promising career.”
