The Envy is a Rock Band from Toronto, Ontario and the first band to sign to Gene Simmons record label. We recently saw them as one of the opening acts for Hinder. The Envy have extreme energy, memorable tunes, and a fiery stage presence, which pumped up the audience. And ladies, for an added bonus, they're all good looking as well!
When they played "Fingers Crossed", they got the crowd jumping. One would never know this group of talented young musicians have only been together as a band for a short time.
Although their arsenal of music is limited (due to being so new), the setlist was welcomed by all the fans. They introduced a song off their self titled EP called "Unfaithful" which was an instant crowd favorite. The Envy's EP is a CD worth buying and is now the latest addition to my Ipod. Not only does this band master their instruments but also the art of writing songs. The lyrics to their music will resonate with many fans. The words to "February On My Wall" are hauntingly beautiful and my personal favorite. "Don't Let Go" and "Never Wanna Lose This Feeling" have extremely catchy melodies and should come with a warning: Beware, these songs can be additive!
I for one have my "Fingers Crossed" for these guys. I think they will go far and I look forward to seeing what they do in the future. If you get the opportunity to see them perform and I hope you do, you won't be disappointed. No doubt you too will be saying "Oh What A Show!"
