The Mailman's Children bring a unique brand of Can-American acoustic-electric rock to the table. Known for smooth, passionate vocals, driving bass and drums, sonic guitar interplay and thought-provoking lyrics, The Mailman's Children are visionaries with a fresh sound who somehow incorporate memorable hints of the 80s and 90s...
Coined a North American-based rock band, The Mailman's Children (TMC) is stationed out of both Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and Helena, Montana, USA. Front man Eric Labossiere currently resides in Helena but is very often in Winnipeg rehearsing and recording with the other members, where he was born and raised.
One year after the birth of TMC in 2000, songwriter and lead vocalist Labossiere had recruited the musician line-up that remains to this day: Joel Couture (Joe C) on bass, Joel Perreault (Joe P) on lead electric guitar and backing vocals, and Ivan Burke on drums. Eddie Vesely recorded drums for the band's previous 2 studio efforts.
TMC has done numerous TV and radio appearances, and toured much of North America. Capable of turning on their rock show or falling back on their acoustic charm, they’ve played with a variety of acts over the years to include Wide Mouth Mason, The Northern Pikes, Mark Reeves, Sass Jordan, Alannah Myles, Son of Dave (Ben Darvill of The Crash Test Dummies), Roller, Greg MacPherson, Pushing Daisies, Keith and Renee, Sinclair and many more. They have played great venues such as The HORSESHOE Tavern, BLACKDOG Freehouse, IRONWOOD Stage & Grill, BIG BOP Building, The PYRAMID Cabaret, The WEST END Cultural Center, McNALLY'S Tavern, ROCKBOTTOM, LANCASTER Taphouse, The Cathedral, ROCKWATER Grill & Bar, REDS, MORGAN'S on 17th, PRARIE INK Cafe, McNally Robinson's, SIDETRACK Cafe, The METRO, FREETIMES Cafe, BUSHWAKKER Brewpub, GRIZZbar, T-BAR, and tons more.
Following a short hiatus, The Mailman’s Children returned stronger than ever with their 3rd studio album "Supply & Demand" in 2013. Their 4th studio release - an EP called "The Spiders We Eat" - was recorded in May of 2014 and released early 2015.
