A quartet of expressive songwriters that take their four-part harmonies as seriously as they take their dedication to a good time, Green Mohair Suits, (Brian Campeau, Richie Cuthbert, Jason Mannell and Ben Romalis) hold a reputation for inspired showmanship and performances as brash as they are emotive.
Having started as a way to hang out, enjoy a few drinks and stretch their obvious skills at smaller unrehearsed gigs, things have snowballed to main-stage festival spots, international supports and, and the release of four studio albums.
Green Mohair Suits’ inspired musicianship has seen them compile a collection of quality original tunes – a solid mix of heartbreak and hangover, humour and humility – that are crying out to entertain a broader audience.
Occupying a broad musical landscape somewhere between Beck, Fleet Foxes, Tom Waits, & Gram Parsons, GMS’ style basks in the glow of “Garage-grass”.
Fans should expect happy sad-songs (or sad happy-songs) in a harmonious blur of booze-soaked good times.

"They put on a toe-tapping performance with plenty of surprising covers and moments of spine-tingling choral perfection." - The Brag
