“I admit that I had not heard of the band beforehand, thus leaving me unsure of what to expect. Now I know I will remember their name whenever it will be brought up, and all of this with good reasons.”

Chair Warriors formed in 2009 and has been an increasingly active member in the Montreal indie music scene ever since. The band recorded their debut EP "A Thousand Words" over fall/winter 2011 with renowned engineer, Glen Robinson. The album features the band's trademark melodic, modern-rock sound and was released in the summer of 2012. The group recorded 2 songs ("Saviours" & "Liars") in the fall of 2013/winter 2014, both of which have videos online.
CW released its latest 7 song EP entitled “Dawn of Edo” on September 23, 2017 on all major digital platforms and several Sunrise Records stores in the Greater Montreal area.
Chair Warriors have opened up for notable acts “I Mother Earth”, "Jeff Martin (The Tea Party)" and “The Joy Formidable” in both Montreal and Quebec City.
Singer/Keyboardist, Brandon Mignacca, competed in LA VOIX 5 (The Voice) and successfully made it to the quarter-finals. He was called back for both the LIVE semi-final and final episodes which aired on TVA, performing two group songs accompanying last year’s winner, Stephanie St.Jean, as well as notable Quebec folk-rock duo, 2Freres. All of Brandon’s performances are on Youtube with ~ 700k views combined (and counting).
The band are winners of Global TV's “Can Your School Rock?” 2010, and were also featured on Global News Morning Montreal for an interview and LIVE in-studio acoustic performance on June 22, 2017.
Chair Warriors have played over 150 shows in and around their hometown of Montreal as well as in Quebec City, Ottawa and has also performed at both the Mod Club and Opera House in Toronto.
