A few years ago Elle and Avery O’Brien AKA: O’Brien were living very different lives, separated by thousands of miles – Avery travelling abroad, exploring and working across Asia and Australia, and Elle living in Vancouver after getting a degree in Microbiology. The sisters were brought back together by a family tragedy, a serious motorbike accident leaving their brother in a coma. After months of uncertainty were relieved by news of an expected recovery, their shared fear and pain had shaken their world and left them unsure where to go next. But it also brought them closer together. It was during this time of reflection and introspection that Elle and Avery decided to pursue their passion for music together.
Harlequin Gold have released a string of singles in the past year. Harlequin Gold includes by producer/guitarist Justice McLellan (Blue J/Mesa Luna) and drummer Jamison Ko, the quartet recently made their Toronto debut during Canadian Music Week supporting Sunflower Bean.
Harlequin Gold was produced by McLellan, recruiting a dream team of Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons), John Raham (Dan Mangan, Frazey Ford) and Stephen Marcussen (Paul McCartney, Band of Horses).
