Cathartic and anthemic, CHIPS deliver honest, in-your-face punk rock that recalls the emotional hooks of Taking Back Sunday, the experimentation and honesty of Thrice, and the jovial camaraderie of Blink 182. The band released their debut EP Dingers in 2016, an exercise in heartbreak, confusion, longing, and coming to grips with how life can sometimes start to slip away from you. Now, following the release of the single Modern Days in 2018, the band is gearing up to finish their debut LP this year, and bring their anthemic and saccharine singalongs to crowds all across Canada, one howling chorus of heartache at a time.

She writes fun, sad and sappy songs that tell stories about her life. In September, she released a live album titled In Sum.
