Partner is the “mature” effort of two best friends named Josée Caron and Lucy Niles. Borne of their bizarre and fortuitous friendship, Partner confidently harnesses the infinite power of Rock to explore a variety of niche yet strangely universal themes. Self described as post-classic-rock.
The two met while attending Mount Allison University in Sackville NB. The duo played in numerous Sackville bands together over their University years (Yellowteeth and The Mouthbreathers). Around late 2014 the idea of Partner came to fruition.
Partner released their debut full length ‘In Search Of Lost Time’ in September 2017 on You’ve Changed Records and received incredible critical acclaim including making the year end best of lists at NPR’s All Songs Considered, Stereogum, Playboy, Noisey, Exclaim, CBC Music, Indie 88 and many more. ‘In Search Of Lost Time’ was also short listed for the Polaris Prize 2018 and Partner’s single “Play The Field” won the SOCAN Songwriting Prize 2018 ($10,000 prize!).
Partner have been named the “best new band in Canada” in the Globe and Mail. And taken their enthusiastic live show all over North America, touring in the USA with Shamir and PUP; and playing practically every Canadian festival (Field Trip, Hillside, Sled Island, Sappy Fest, Halifax Pop Explosion, Pop Montreal, Beau’s Oktoberfest, CMW, Folk On The Rocks and many more).
