You have your standard checklist for the makings of a stellar contemporary band: two main vocalists, guitarists, and songwriters, Hayden Nolan and Bella Galasso, accompanied by knockout keys, bass, and drums from Michael Vallinakis, Devan Meisner, and Julian Galasso, respectively.
But dig a little deeper, and you discover The Record Breakers are so much more.

"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."
- Jordan Zivitz, Montreal Gazette, May 18, 2018

“I was not sure what to expect when they took the stage but these kids blew me away.
A mix a blues, pop, folk with a hard edge, a touch of Keelor and Cuddy. Their original material is fantastic.
These kids are musically way ahead of their age. I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
- Steve Fett Photography - 2016
"As the Founder & Executive Director of the organization Overture with the Arts (OWTA)
I've had the pleasure of working with the Record Breakers for more than a year.
Their work ethic, talent and catchy original songs have made them a very popular, in-demand band.
Not only are they incredibly talented - They're also really good people. With their busy schedules
they still manage to find time to volunteer and perform at OWTA events.
OWTA is so proud of their accomplishments. Keep up the great work, TRB. This is only the beginning!"
- Akilah Newton, Overture with the Arts - 2016
“I’ve had the pleasure of not only seeing the Record Breakers live, but having a sit-down
interview with them as well. They’re talented musicians who really care about their fans and
I can only foresee great things happening to them down the road.
I’ve featured more than one of their songs on my radio show and I’m sure it won’t be last.
They’re one of the very best acts on the local music scene in Montreal!”
- Matt Fish, Former Evening Host & Promotions Coordinator WYUL 94.7 Hits FM - 2016
