Pancake Manor is family entertainment, brought to you by a real-life family!
Billy Reid and Reb Stevenson have been producing Pancake Manor together since 2011. Based in Victoria, Canada, they write and record all of the music, film, edit, illustrate and wrangle the talent (usually themselves or their dog, Whimsy). Pancake Manor has released 7 albums and 2 EPs through UK-based Moonbug Music. On YouTube, Pancake Manor has surpassed 1.5 billion views.
In 2018 Billy and Reb released their favourite project to date: their daughter Rose.
Billy has been creating original songs and videos online for most of his career. His first foray into YouTube was with his pop/comedy channel Very Tasteful, where he collaborated with many popular early YouTube stars. He also hosted the show “Exposure” on CBC television.
With Pancake Manor, Billy found his calling. It’s a series that allows him to celebrate everything he loved as a child: puppets, high energy music, silliness and a smattering of education.
Billy’s musical influences are The Ramones, Weezer and The Beach Boys.
His favourite childhood movie is Back to The Future.
Reb hails from a family of musicians and singers, so doing ironic dances for Pancake Manor is a natural fit. However, she started her career as a journalist and photographer, working at The Ottawa Citizen, The Vancouver Sun and penning her own travel column for The Toronto Star. She now applies her writing skills to a talking dragon mailbox and does most of the cinematography for Pancake Manor. Reb is an avid traveller and is especially fond of the UK and its enchanting footpaths.
Reb’s musical influences are Madonna, Tegan and Sara and The Weeknd.
Her favourite childhood movie is The Neverending Story.
