My Excuse is the first band from Greece making a breakthrough in the United States and Canada to get their music heard around the world.
“What does music mean to us, and what does the band mean to us?” says the band’s front man Steven Triant, a Greek American (his dad is from Greece and his mom is from Texas) who was raised in Thessaloniki. “It has always been an excuse for what we are and what we do, and what we don’t do. What’s asked of us from parents, friends, society, the education systems we’ve been through… the lifestyle we’ve chosen is influenced and directed by what we do which is play music every day... That has kept us from going in other directions that were expected of us, but also kept us sane, kept us doing what we do. That’s what the band is… an excuse for what we are.”
My Excuse is an alternative modern rock band formed by Steven Triant and in 2003 they released their first album with Universal Music.
In 2010 they released the single “Is it Over Now”, produced by the legendary Ron St Germain, which saw huge success in Greece and established them as one of the best English speaking bands.
In July 2012, My Excuse launched their first tour of the U.S. While in New York, they completed a series of live performances, studio sessions and a variety of activities that further evolved their dynamic course and talent. They successfully performed in a number of historic venues, including the Stars & Stripes Festival in Lake Michigan.
On July 11, 2012 My Excuse released their first international single “Silent Revolution”. The track is part of their new album, ALL I’VE BECOME, which was recorded while on their first U.S. tour and produced by Ron St Germain.
Currently, My Excuse is in the U.S. having successfully completed their Kickstarter project funding while preparing for their Spring Tour in the U.S. and Canada.
This is their second tour across the U.S only this time they are going to visit some of the largest cities in North America such as New York, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia and Charlotte playing more than 30 live performances. They will participate in the Millennium Music Conference, the Ft Lauderdale Beach Music Festival and Canadian Music Week in Toronto one of the largest festivals in Canada.
