Biografia

Borne in the bedrooms of a family home in Brantford, Ontario, Casey Mecija’s tender compositions, bound with youthful frailty and unnerving beauty, found their pace in Toronto. Enlisting the help of her younger sister, Jenny, and friends Heather Kirby and Anissa Hart, Mecija’s songs took flight. An encounter with James Bunton and Ryan Carley led to further collaboration and the conception of Ohbijou. Andrew Kinoshita soon added his talents to Ohbijou’s orchestration. Furnished with mandolin, violin, piano, banjo, cello and an impressive array of other instruments, a seven piece orchestral pop force began to appear on stages around Toronto. In June of 2005 Ohbijou released Zips and Zings, an EP that announced the arrival of a band that would deeply alter the landscape of independent music in Toronto. The 2006 release of their first full-length album, Swift Feet for Troubling Times, garnered high praise from critics, led the band across both Canada and the United States, and was catalyst for numerous sold-out performances.


Ohbijou has a healthy preoccupation with the movements and events that coincide with the creation of their music. Mecija pens songs wrought with the romantic afflictions of big city life. She sutures the intimate details of her personal relations to the macrocosmic relations of her city; her lyrics eulogize the streets and neighbourhoods of a changing city, and the humbling encounters that happen because of and in spite of these changes. Dressed with intricate melodies and vocal harmonies arranged by her bandmates, the songs reveal a striking musicality and virtuosity. A string of accolades has followed Ohbijou since its inception, and they have quietly amassed a devoted and varied army of fans.
