Amos the Transparent is the brainchild of Ottawa songwriter Jonathan Chandler - a soft-spoken talent with a faultless ear. Chandler teamed up with drummer and primary collaborator, Christopher Wilson to solidify material that was written over a period of several years. The duo applied a collective approach to the recording process of their debut "Everything I've Forgotten To Forget", drawing out the influences and talents of numerous guest artists including Amy Millan of Stars who makes a special guest vocal appearance on the stunning duet, "After All That, It's Come To This". 2007`s "Everything I`ve Forgotten To Forget" was quickly accepted by critics and fans alike, earning it the title of 'Canadian Album Of the Year' and Amos the Transparent as one of Canada's best kept secrets on many of Canada's indie music charts.
Amos the Transparent has recently taken strides to move from a collaborative, singer/songwriter type of outfit to what they consider their perfect mix of 6 individuals. This mix includes long time members, Mark Hyne and James Nicol as well as the two newest additions, Dan Hay and Kate Cooke. With more emphasis on writing as a group Amos the Transparent has recently delivered their follow up release in the form of "My, What Big Teeth You Have...". Released on their own Sunday School Music, "Teeth" is already following in footsteps of their acclaimed debut. The new line up not only reproduces the feel and songwriting of the record but also delivers an unforgettable live performance
