21and9 is a rock band from Kincardine, Ontario. Original members of the band, Rob Edwards and John Culbert have been writing and performing songs together since childhood. Through the years it was common for Rob to host social gatherings and jam sessions with friends. This eventually lead to the addition of local drummer, Dane Dunlop, and lead guitarist, Zach Brajuha (Rob's neighbour). The band mainly played together privately as a hobby until 2018, until the band was invited to play a set at a large birthday party for a popular local musician. This set received positive reception and kicked off the first of many requests for the band to play live. The band worked hard to write more original material, and started performing live shows at every opportunity. Days before their first show, the band remained nameless. For their first show, the band decided on a name that pays homage to the place they all now call home (pictured below), and the rest is history.
In 2021, 21and9 released their debut album titled So... The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Juno award winner, Siegfried Meier. The band is now working on their second album which will be released in Summer, 2023.
