Are emily haines and jimmy shaw dating
Shaw was born in London, England and raised in Bellevue, Ontario, Canada.
He spent three years earning a classical music education at the Juilliard Music School in New York.
Upon returning to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he met Emily Haines, and the two began dating and making music immediately. His early efforts to make sure that former high school friends Haines and Kevin Drew remained friends helped the evolution of the band Broken Social Scene.
Shaw produced the debut album of the Montreal band The Lovely Feathers (who toured with Metric in 2005).
“That’s my man,” she said, sighing and gazing at him wistfully. ” "The signature Metric idea is that the sweet spot in music and in life comes from luxuriating in the battle and then celebrating fiercely when you win." We were all tucked away downstairs at New York’s favorite exclusive rock bar, The Cabin, attending the listening session for the Canadian band’s new album, .
“You’re blushing,” she said laughing, then snapped her fingers and her husband, an insanely affable and dapper South American artist and musician Haines met on an airplane, appeared with a bottle of champagne, offering refills.
Now with Synthetica, the next level of their career's structure reaches further skyward.
Shaw notes that while each stage of their career's construction has been just as hard-earned, their success has matched it, and with every step they have moved up to "a different spot on the staircase." Haines agrees: "We've always been on this kind of slow and steady trajectory, but it feels on a different level." Synthetica is at once darker and more hopeful than anything they've done before.
One of the things that’s most charming about Metric is that they’ve fought for their fame, having battled indifference and label melodrama and the odd bout of tepid critical response, and come out on top.I tell them I was glad to have had their soundtrack to get me through it. They still seem shocked by it, and by the energy that is already building in advance of their latest album, Synthetica, coming out June 12."Oh God, I am not used to it at all," Shaw confesses. The record already made chart history when "Youth Without Youth" became the first single to ever debut at #1 on the Mediabase Canadian Alternative Radio Airplay chart. "We're following it, and it's actually going quite fast." The band's rise has been steady, more architectural than meteoric.Also, my whole life is this band, which was something I realized while writing this record.Holy fuck, this really is what I am doing with my life." As Haines and Shaw continue to challenge themselves regarding their own artistic authenticity, they face new anxieties.
