The First Aid Kit
Halifax, Nova Scotia
A rock and roll-meets-indie-meets-pop band, The First Aid Kit is made up of Conor Hancey, Matt Davidson, Craig Koziar, Amy Bollivar and Darryl Smith. They write songs layered thick with guitars and synths and packed to the edges with hooks. And they sing like they mean it.
Though they currently live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, they all grew up scattered across Ontario, Nova Scotia and California. Conor (guitar/bass/vocals), Darryl (guitar/bass/vocals) and Matt (guitar/bass/vocals) knew each other for ages and went to summer camp together. They eventually decided to start a band and settled in Halifax where they rounded out the group with Craig (drums) and Amy (keyboards) in November 2006.
