9th February 2018 - Friday 19:00

Børns, Michigan's sensational indie pop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Rebel Toronto!

Børns (birth name Garrett Clark Borns) was born in Grand Haven (Michigan) in 1992 and is a singer and songwriter. His musical style is best described as a blend of alternative rock, indie pop (a subgenre of alternative/indie rock originating in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and differing from indie rock to the extent that it’s more melodic, less abrasive, and relatively angst free), electro pop (a fusion of electronic music and pop music - with primary usage of synthesizers and various electronic and pop musical instruments - often with simple, catchy hooks and simple dance beats, but differing from those of electronic dance music genres in that songwriting is emphasized over simple danceability), and synth pop (a subgenre of new wave music that rose to prominence in the late 1970s and features the synthesizer as the dominant musical instrument). He’s had a stellar career with 1 studio album (which hit #2 on Billboard's Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts), 2 extended plays (one of which hit #2 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart), 6 singles (one of which has been certified Platinum in the US), and he's performed at many major events such as the Life Is Beautiful festival, Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
