Phono Pony is:

Michael Kenyon - guitar/ vocals/ theremin

Shay Hayashi - drums/ vocals/ synthesizer


“...their barebones methodology scattered like a broken beer bottle, there’s something demented and gluttonous about Phono Pony.”-Elevtrtrax

"Not only is creativity bursting from their seams, but they have the skills to realize their ambitious ideas."
-Discorder Magazine

"A strut-heavy affair.  Lurching, swaggering, diabolical even."

-BeatRoute Magazine

Phono Pony are a garage-glam duo based out of Vancouver, B.C. These multi-instrumentalists create huge sounds with guitar, drums, vocals, synth and theremin. Their grit-polished sonics, style and conviction as songwriters have landed them gigs alongside Snoop Dogg, CJ Ramone and Incubus. The duo’s first full length album "Monkey Paw”, produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara), gave the pair successful debut momentum. Phono Pony have performed at CBC's JUNOfest '18, FIMPRO '19 and were introduced on The Edge 102.1 as Alan Cross' personal pick. The band's EP "Death By Blowfish" was selected by Collective Arts Brewing and featured on their nationally distributed artist series beer cans. Phono Pony are currently working on their next LP after collaborating with producer/musician, Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat) on their recently released juicy single, "Back To School Special". Outside of the band, Shay and Michael operate a local community arts space (The Woods Studio) and recording studio (Phony! Records).   

*The band’s 2020 North American tour is currently postponed until further notice of the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay safe, we're in this together.
