The group was originally formed in the mid 1980s as a street-busking operation in downtown Toronto. The line-up consisted of guitarist/ song-writer Charlie Angus, vocalist Michelle Rumball and fiddler/accordionist Peter Jellard.
In 1987, stand-up bassist Tim Hadley joined the band, followed by drummer Peter Duffin. This marked the move of the Angels to Toronto bars like the Cabana Room and the Horseshoe. In 1988, a series of demos were put together as the independent release Toute la Gang.
The Willing are a four-piece indie pop band formed in Montreal in 2012. Their main mission is to make some seriously stellar pop rock you don't have to feel guilty listening to. Consisting of Paul Col (bass), Justin Wiley (drums), Schuyler Dun Flannegan (guitars) and Will Riley (vocals), the group of young men spend most of their time together hashing together their first forth coming demo Splendid Gifts; a soup of a reccord containing various influence from '70s funk to modern day top 40 radio jams. When they're not doing that, the four are your typical mid-20s bachelors, playing video games, drinking beer and working your run of the mill lame restaurant jobs. With lots on the way, they keep fingers crossed and chins up, gearing up for a big year to come!
