The Man Who
In November 2015, while living more than 2,000 miles apart, cousins David and Chad sparked up a musical collaboration based on demos sent back-and-forth, and song ideas shared over the phone. During a writing trip spent holed up in a basement studio in Chad’s hometown of Toronto, the two started experimenting with vintage synthesizers and throwback hip-hop drum loops. It was a radical departure from the stripped-back folk of their earlier sound.
With Frank later brought into the fold on drums, we dubbed ourselves The Man Who and are happy to be sharing our debut Bet On You EP with the world today.

Something comparable to our earlier music, but with just enough of something new.
“Down” can be interpreted so many different ways that we like to leave it up to you, the listener, to interpret how you best see fit.
As a band, our three personalities are so different – but in the best way possible.
We all balance each other out. We can spend countless hours in some tiny rehearsal space or bedroom, just running ideas, trying things out, seeing what’s possible with the music. It’s more fun than anything else in the world.
