Rapport

Toronto, ON

Toronto-born Maddy Wilde (Moon King, Born Ruffians) formed Rapport with band members Kurt Marble and Mike Pereira, (Twist, Ducks ltd, Most People) Together they face the challenges of creating earnest pop despite their musical backgrounds in garage, post punk and glam rock; Rapport embarked on a journey into the depths of classic pop.

Wilde’s arrangements combine her intuitive sense of harmony with a desire to sincerely capture the essence of sentimentality. Warm synth pads, punchy percussive bass and Knopfler-esque guitar lines play off of Maddy’s rich vocal melodies. The result is a constant braiding of memorable hooks, reminiscent of ABBA or Jeff Lynne’s ELO.
