"Out Of Sight!" is the exciting new long-play album by The Top Drawers! This one has been a long time coming, but fans of the band's early work will not be disappointed. The same raucous, fun, big beat retro garage-rock sound that you have grown to love, lives on! Although Eric Lefebvre still sings the bulk of the songs, founding member and bassist, Patrick Jacobson, steps up to the mic to sing the lead on "My Baby Loves To Rock & Roll", as does lead guitarist, Scott Perry, on "Sweetheart" and "Took My Blues Away". This is the album debut for long-time members, Blair MacDonald (drums) and Scott Perry (lead guitar/vocals). It was recorded at Echoplant Recording Studios in Coquitlam, BC by Juno-nominated recording engineer, Ryan Worsley, and at Please Yourself Studios in Vancouver, BC by the album's producer, Scott Fletcher.
"Out Of Sight!" is being released on all digital streaming platforms on March 19th, and on vinyl on April 26th. It has already been distributed to campus and community radio stations nationwide as well as to CBC, SiriusXM Satellite, and to select commercial stations.

This was where it all began! This is the sound of four young musicians who barely knew each other, literally learning new songs together in the studio. This EP was completely recorded, mixed and mastered in a single day, and it had been out of print for fourteen years! Now, it has been re-released to the public for the first time since 2007. All of these songs were later re-recorded for the full-length "You're So Fine" album, but these early recordings are The Top Drawers' origin story, so to speak.
The Top Drawers' first full length album has held up well over the years and we're proud to say that we still love it! This was recorded the old school way - four guys in a room playing music live, raw, and loud. The entire record was recorded in just three days, mixed in three days, and mastered in one. From here, the band started to tour, play festivals, garner press, perform on TV, and even have one of their songs used in a movie. Click the button below to hear it on Apple Music.
Everybody knows that the top drawer is where all the best secrets are kept safe. Perhaps Vancouver’s best kept secret is a rock 'n' roll band known as The Top Drawers. Richly steeped in 1960s Brit-rock flavour, The Top Drawers are intent on reviving the joy, the energy, and the fun of rock ‘n’ roll.
The Top Drawers have collected the adoration of music-scenesters and would-be sock-hoppers everywhere they’ve played. Perhaps it’s because their obvious homage to 1960s rock music comes very naturally. The band’s lead singer, Eric Lefebvre, has toured as the drummer for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Terry Sylvester of The Hollies. It also doesn’t hurt that their first album was mixed by Canadian audio-guru/Odds-alumnus, Steven Drake. The resulting vibe is so sincere that it prompted The Grapes of Wrath's Kevin Kane to say, "If they had mixed the record in mono, pressed it onto vinyl, and pre-scuffed and scratched the records, they could have passed 'You're So Fine' off as a super-rare, obscure treasure of the mid-60s (and at collector prices!). They'd no doubt fool a lot of people."
The Top Drawers have toured all over Western Canada, performed at festivals, and had their song "Crazy Day" featured in the Haylie Duff movie, "Fear Island." The band’s live shows have become exuberant events characterized by call-and-answer choruses, handclaps, dancing, and barrages of lead guitar. It is unapologetically rock ‘n’ roll in its purest form.
