Platinum-certified Canadian breakout duo Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine do it all for “You” with their brand new single, available everywhere today (2/15) via Big Machine Records. Also launching today is the pre-order for “8:47”, the debut EP from the 2018 iHeartRadio MMVA Best New Canadian Artist winners. The EP, available March 8th, features seven self-penned tracks including the CRIA Gold-certified chart-topper “Better Off”, with “You” available to fans when they pre-order or pre-save the album HERE. Still soaring from their recent 2019 JUNO Award nominations for Breakthrough Group of the Year and JUNO Fan Choice, the talented twosome is set to hit the road with Marianas Trench for their “Suspending Gravity” tour which kicks off March 6th in Windsor, ON, taking them across the country before wrapping in Vancouver on March 29th.
Measured, introspective and straight forward, the duo is ready to ascend to the next level of superstardom. EWxJF continue to pull away from the pack as one of the most successful breakthrough musical acts of the past year, as evidenced by the platinum success of lead single “Ain’t Easy”, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes All Genres chart and hit #1 on the Top 200 most Shazamed songs in Canada. The Top 40 hit at Pop radio in the U.S. and Top 5 hit at Pop and HOT AC Radio in Canada was co-written alongside producer Ryan Tedder (One Republic),as well as Camila Cabello (“Havana,” “Never Be The Same”), Zach Skelton (Hailee Steinfeld, Rachel Platten) and Tom Mann (Youngr, Ananya Birla) and in 2018, together with “Better Off”, garnered close to 30 million streams worldwide while capturing an audience of 417.3 million, also crowning them the 2nd most played Canadian act at Pop Radio for the year.
Comprised of instrumentalist/composer Elijah Woods, “churning out endlessly inventive hooks” (Ottawa Citizen), and lyricist/vocalist Jamie Fine, whose “vocal delivery bores the influence of artists from Alanis to Adele” (Ottawa Citizen), EWxJF is a delicate marriage of exploratory musical styles and masterful emotional play. Purposefully breaching the boundaries of rhythmic pop music by embracing and balancing their penchant for stylized pop and hip hop culture, EWxJF continuously create waves rather than ride them – striving to remain true to a vision that deviates from the mainstream, bringing full-sized moments and their kinetic energy to the forefront, one genre-defying hit at a time.
