We are Open Wide Music. We are what you love about music. We focus on the sounds of classic rock & roll, but we draw inspiration from many genres of music. With each member bringing different styles to the table, the music that comes out is original, interesting, and good. That's already a few steps up from many of today's bands that are a product of musical inbreeding.

And on top of that, the members of Open Wide Music come from across Canada. From Regina, SK, Chris Munro (guitar & vocals) brings his taste for Classic Rock and Americana like The Black Crowes, and Pearl Jam. From Fredericton, NB, James Lockhart (vocals, keyboard & guitar) likes the Alternative music like Radiohead, but also a little Sinatra. From Tweed, ON, Matt “Tweed” Jones (drums) brings in a country flavour like Willie Nelson or a little more rock like The Band. And from Simcoe, ON, Andy Wright (bass) brings his love of 80's rock like Van Halen and The Police.

We met each other in 1999 while attending Harris Institute in Toronto, where we studied music production. We formed as a band in 2001 and spent the first 2 years living in a small apartment in downtown Toronto, where we continuously wrote, recorded, and perfected our songs. Open Wide Music released their debut album, Versi¨un 01 in 2004. We recorded, mixed, and produced it ourselves (because that's what we went to school for.) This first album also includes many guest performances by friends and mentors we met while in school.

In 2006, recording sessions occurred in the home of Chris and Tweed (and, at that time, Sean Coleman who played bass with OWM 2005 - 2007 before removing himself from the big city and OWM). Out of that came the latest release, "Anthropic", a stellar 5-song EP. Another EP is due soon for those recordings, but, sadly, all members of OWM have to work day jobs, so it's hard to find mixing time. Instead, we play. We love to play and we play a lot. Down in Chris & Tweed's basement, we are always writing and always working on new songs. We always play something new at every show and we could probably fill another 2 albums right now with new tunes.
