“Five Minutes With” Toronto Band Pink Leather Jackets

Pink Leather Jackets was essentially formed in a day. On October 1st Steve was moving in with Chris in Toronto. Steve’s brother Nathan was helping him move in. Chris had a rock show booked but no rock band! Knowing that Nathan just got off tour across Canada playing bass, he asked him if he’d like to do a local paid rock gig. Nathan was in! After Steve had finished moving in by the end of the day, Chris and Steve had got to talking. Knowing Steve just got off tour across Europe playing lead guitar, Chris asked Steve if he’d like to join the band for a local paid rock gig. Steve was in! Since that local paid rock gig they have gone on to perform all across southern Ontario every weekend using a grand list of drummers such as Ray Cara, Jordan Zagerman, and Matt Bellissimo. Building a fan base with their live show and songwriting, they have now compiled their first EP entitled Good Love.
