Talent Bio

The members of the group are Emily Haines (lead vocals, synths, guitar, tambourine, harmonica, and piano), Joshua Winstead (bass, synthesizers, backup vocals), James Shaw (guitar, synthesizers, theremin), and Joules Scott-Key (drums, percussion). Haines and Shaw founded the group in 1998 under the moniker “Mainstream” as a pair. They changed the band’s name to Metric after releasing an EP under the moniker Mainstream EP.

Fantasies, the fourth album by Metric, was made available in 2009.

Synthetica, the fifth studio album from Metric, was made available in 2012. During the 2013 Juno Awards, the group took home two prizes: “Producer of the Year” for Shaw and “Alternative Album of the Year” for Synthetica.
