Artist Profile

Ten Minute Detour

Calgary, Alberta
In late 2013, a four-piece rock band formed in Calgary AB, under the name Ten Minute Detour. Less than two months after finding each other using popular classified ad site, Kijiji, the group released their self-titled three track EP. By November of 2014, with several shows under the belt, including an opening spot for One Bad Son, the band recorded their first full-length album entitled, Lay It Down. From this album, Four Papers was released as the bands first single. Combining garage rock and blues, Four Papers showcased lead singer, Andrew Shier’s, song writing ability and vocal range. There is a stillness around the four young members of Ten Minute Detour. An easygoing yet anxious vibe runs through the group. Just sitting in the same room with the band gives you the feeling that these guys are always waiting, each as poised as the next, to get back on the stage where they belong and do what they love most.
Ten Minute Detour emanates the rough, riffy sound of classic rock guitars, tube amps and wild vocals, all backed by hard hitting, energetic drums. Each song created using a different recipe, Ten Minute Detour rings true to all types of rockers around the world. Focused heavily on the importance of performing live, this raw, vital form of rock will leave you banging your head for days.
Ten Minute Detour is inspired by the sounds of Kings of Leon, Pearl Jam, Led Zepplin, Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, RHCP, and Soundgarden to name a few.
