Calling All Captains is a band from Canada that is breaking through the pop punk scene and changing the way we should define the genre. The band is comprised of Luc Gauthier (Vocals), Brad Bremner (guitar), Connor Dawkins (guitar), Nick Malychuk (bass) and Tim Wilson (drums). The band is singed to Equal Vision Records and released their EP “Nothing Grows Here” in February 2019. Calling All Captains is in the midst of preparing for their first album release. We spoke with Luc and had a wonderful conversation about the insides into the life of a budding signed musician.
Gauthier has lived in the same city for his whole life, he likes to say he is 25 but looks forever 16. He has been playing music with his friend Connor Dawkins together for a long time. Gauthier and Dawkins started jamming together when Gauthier dropped a guitar pick in math class and the rest was history. They had known their bass player, Nick Malychuk, for about 8 years which was before Captains was even a band. The band has been together for about 6 years and was signed to Equal Vision Records a year ago.
