Short For Arthur began 3 years ago in Moncton, New Brunswick when bassist Sean Bampton, guitar player Dylan Bingham and vocalist/keyboardist Jordan Best decided to take their monthly living room jams to the next level when they added drummer Steve Dufour into the mix. Two years of regular improv jams passed when the band finally decided to put together some solid tunes. They hit the stage in June of 2016 and have been playing shows around NB ever since. Their music is a catchy blend of indie-rock woven together with what could be described as heavy jazz on psychedelics. While the band sticks to songs designed to get you grooving, they still bring in their history of improvisational jams to the stage that leave you with an energetic live experience. Short For Arthur will have you swimming in the cosmos, dancing to thunder, raise your hairs like the wind and touch your soul with notes from the ocean's flow.
2018 is a year of expansion for the band! They are currently in the process of completing their first studio album. Stay tuned for shows and announcements!
