The Nico Tobias Band are an award-winning rock/country band from Edmonton, Alberta.
"The Nico Tobias Band" are a bunch of classic rock lovin', outlaw country playin' fools from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Originally formed under the name "Abbey Rodeo", the four boys (Nico Tobias, Jordan Ast, Ty Coutu and James O'Neill) met at the Grant MacEwan University Music Program where they realized Jazz wasn't for them. Nico, who hails from the small mountain town of Canmore, had a catalog of catchy rock pop tunes that they recorded and started to play at every bar that would take them. The recordings where released on what is now called "The Abbey Rodeo EP", which was largely funded by Nico's home town who awarded him with an Emerging Artist Bursary in 2016. Yet as the boys got to know each other and got more comfortable in the Edmonton scene, their sound changed with their name. The first release as "The Nico Tobias Band" was "Anthracite", a grimy wink at Johnny Cash and Alberta history which won the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition for Canadiana. It became the first track on the band's 2019 album "No More Mr. Nico Guy" and it also redefined the music they were playing. Train Beat and Chicken Pickin' were here to stay, and the band found themselves as part of Edmonton's country music revival. "The Nico Tobias Band" kicked off 2020 as part of Exclaim! Magazines Class of 2020, a showcase on upcoming bands across Canada, and they released their second EP "Berta Badland Buffalo Boy Band" in March 2020.
