The Sinners Choir is a trio comprised of three generations of seasoned Toronto sidemen: bassist Terry Wilkins, drummer Adam Warner and guitarist Adam Beer-Colacino.
The Sinners Choir takes each player out of their sideman role and allows them to showcase themselves as singers and composers with a resonant 3 part harmony as an added bonus.
Terry Wilkins is a veteran of the Canadian music scene since arriving from Australia in 1971 and represents the 60 something demographic. He has been a member of bands ranging from Rough Trade to Lighthouse to David Wilcox and Big Sugar aw well as a string of visiting jazz and blues artists like Dr. John, John Hammond and Levon Helm among others.
Adam Warner has been in the trenches as a drummer supporting a who’s who of Canadian musical aristocracy. Steven Page, Randy Bachmann, Sarah Slean and Chantal Kreviatzuk to name a few. Adam has released 3 solo CDs under his own name entitled Fall, No Place to Lay and Sawdust and Sour Apples. Adam represents the 40 something demographic.
The youngest member of the band representing the 20 something group is Adam Beer Colacino. Adam has been honing his craft mostly on the streets of Toronto working with such people as Devin Cuddy, Whitney Rose and members of Downchild Blues Band. His guitar playing is influenced by Pops Staples and Freddie King.
The age range in this band reflects the age range of their fans. This is not an every day occurrence in this music business.
The band shows a deep understanding of the last hundred years of Roots/Americana and presents itself with both a simultaneously gritty and sweet approach.
The depth of original repertoire is a testament to having 3 composers within. The band is capable of playing a full concert length presentation of wholly original music.
In July 2015 The Sinners Choir took part in The Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival where the band played for thousands of people over 2 days. The band was warmly received.
The Sinners Choir released their first recording on July 25 2015 titled ‘The Sinners Choir Vol.1’ which is a 4 song EP containing 3 originals, one each by Terry, Adam and Adam and a traditional piece.
The Sinners Choir backed Winnipeg’s Big Dave McLean and various guests at the lobby after-party for the 2016 Maple Blues Awards @ Koerner Hall in Toronto on Mon. Jan 18 2017.
Currently, The Sinners Choir is just completing the recording of a 12 song all original CD recorded in Mono Township in late winter. They will release mid-summer in time for their concerts at The Mariposa Festival on July 7.8 and 9. They are thrilled to be part of this amazing festival.
