In late 2014, a 4-piece rock band formed in Calgary, Alberta under the name Ten Minute Detour and with several shows under their belt–including an opening spot for One Bad Son–the band recorded their first full-length album, “Lay It Down”.
In October 2015, Ten Minute Detour won the SessionsX One Shot competition as judged by industry leaders and producers Jeremy Taggart, Maia Davies, and Drew Khan. This vote of confidence along with some studio time allowed the band to record the four songs live off the floor with Toronto-based producer Gavin Brown.
In the winter of 2017 after several shows around western Canada, the band travelled to Nashville, Tennessee to record their second LP, “Common Pleasure” with producer and former Cage the Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish.
With the release of their second album, TMD toured from Vancouver to Toronto, capping off a successful run of shows by playing the Coke Stage at the Calgary Stampede. The album was played on several Canadian radio stations, and was even featured on Alan Cross’ “Undiscovered Gems”, seeing airplay on Toronto’s 102.1 The Edge.
The band relocated to Southern Ontario in 2019, where they are currently working on their third studio album and preparing for a busy 2020.
