100 Word Bio

The Oldest Man I Know is a high energy, punk inspired folk band from Kitchener Ontario. We play traditional instruments untraditionally, and take influence from such bands as Trampled by Turtles, Rail Yard Ghosts, NoFX, and Mama's Broke. 

The Oldest Man I Know started out as the solo banjo project of Taylor Esch, but since setting roots in the twin cities (Kitchener-Waterloo) in 2017, the project has grown into a full acoustic band. 

The Oldest Man I Know released their first full length album "TOMIK" in the spring of 2019 and are currently working on new material for a follow up album.
