About the Artist
Outbreak is a local band from Burlington, Ontario. The young band consists of students from Nelson High school, and each have a passion for music. The band primarily plays covers from a variety of alternative and rock bands such as Foo Fighters, Young the Giant, Cage the Elephant, Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. They pay homage to the bands while incorporating their own stylistic changes to the songs. The band has now started to add original music to their repertoire written by various members of the band.
Outbreak had the opportunity to play at Merriam School of Music in Oakville, the Canadian Original Music Series at the Boston Manor, and the YMCA battle of the band’s competition in Burlington. Outbreak is also pleased to have been featured in an article written by Kathryn Dunmore in the Burlington Post.
