Five Minutes With: Alternative Pop-Rock Band Mr! Mouray

Mr! Mouray is a four-piece from Toronto featuring Simon Bedford-James (lead vocals, guitar), Nelson Pereira (guitar, vocals), Jaimie Vernon (bass, vocals), Craig Adams (drums, vocals) who have been playing in bands together for over 35 years. Some call it geezer-rock. They call it experience. The legacy to date includes three EPs, a Christmas single, and two full-length albums including the newest “What’s The Stouray”.

Mr! Mouray’s full-length record, “What’s The Stouray” (with former member David Otanez on drums) was released at the tail end of 2022 on Vernon’s Bullseye Records and made it on International Pop Overthrow Festival impresario David Bash’s best-of list. Mr! Mouray proudly takes part in the festival each year and plans to perform extensively in 2023.
