“They are currently taking the world by storm with their infectious sound.” – CelebMix
Encore is on the rise. Releasing three singles over the course of one year, they are developing a fan base through live performance, a strong social media presence and their ability to connect with their fans. Band leader, Donald Plant began writing and performing music with his younger brother, Richard Plant, when they were in elementary school. The band has undergone various iterations, deciding on the name, ‘Encore,’ in 2016 after the addition of their current bassist, Daniel Rafaelov.
Encore’s music classifies them into numerous different genres, with different styles of influence, giving them a unique sound. Using stylistic influence from artists such as Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars, they have diversified themselves into a genre that they have made their own. They pride themselves on their ability to write and perform music encompassing a variety of styles in order to have the broadest audience reach possible.
Encore released their first single, “Good Girls” just
before they were contacted by a tour manager from Live Different, a charitable organization focused on inspiring youth in Canada through positivity. After this partnership, Encore toured from January-May of 2018 where they performed over 75 shows at high schools across all of Eastern Canada.
Much of Encore’s success can be attributed to their tremendous social media presence. Always finding ways to communicate with their audience, keeping active on all social media and constantly updating their followers of any upcoming releases, shows, and trips has helped to ensure they are always up to date.This tradition of social media promotion has been, and still remains to be one of their key strategies for building awareness of their group.
