(1) Maurice Maurice began in Victoria, British Columbia in parent's basements, community halls, and the bars of Vancouver Island. The young members crafted memorable pop songs mixed with humour, heartbreak, and references to their Western Canadian landscape. These songs caught the ear of David Foster, who was so taken with the band, that he signed the group to his Warner Brothers imprint, 143 Records, in 2007.
The years that followed were a period of growth for the band; They spent several months writing and recording what would become Young People With Faces with Producer Matt Hyde. Recording nearly 25 tracks for the album in Silverlake, Hollywood and Van Nuys during the end of 2008, Maurice had a large catalogue to contribute to their first offering.
