The Beginning of FairwayEdit

Fairway was a band formed by Nick Willett and Brandon Robertson during their high school years of 2005. The band was fully operational until drummer Cole Broughton joined early 2006. After half a year of touring Lacombe and areas around it, Guitarist Gage Kadot joined Fairway and played the role of Lead guitarist. But only in late 2007 was Fairway noticed in the music industry. After releasing three singles and one album from small independent recording companies, fairway was ready to sign with a major label. But at the end of 2007 Gage Kadot left the band to start his own band but quickly broke up. Gage was replace by a friend of the band Kelly Penualt.

Nothing For Me HereEdit

The bands first album released under sweet dreams records was a complete flop. It did establish a small fan base and did sell over 600 000 copy's for the band but there were alot of issues among the band that later resulted Gage Kadot to leave the band.

Nick thought up the idea to try out different forms of music to find out which kind of music would be best for them.


The Switch To SkaEdit

A month later after the release of "Nothing For Me Here" The Band Announced their official switch from being an Alternative/Hard Rock band to a Ska-Punk/Punk Rock band. But not everyone was happy, The band lost most of their fans and bassist Brandon Robertson almost quit the band after arguments of not switching between Nick and Brandon.

After roughly a month and a half of searching they added four new people to the line-up Mark Yachminov-Trombone Greg Stamile-Trumpet Taylor Davis-Tenor Saxophone Stevie Grann-Alto Saxophone

Surprise!!Edit

Fairway's first album as a ska band was a mild success and established a comfortable fan base around the world. Released under Talent radar the album sold 1,657,866 copy's which was a huge step for the band.

Kelly even stated that it felt like they were actually a band for once unlike from there previous hard rock roots.
