J. Gaines and the Soul Attorneys is a Canadian pop/R&B band formed in 1994 as Soul Attorneys, which at the time consisted of Jacques Gaines, Eric Filto and Mathieu Dandaurand.
Active under their original moniker between 1995 and 1999, they achieved some success in Canada and abroad, touring with Celine Dion, signing with Sony Records, and releasing two Canadian top-10 singles, These are the Days and So They Say.
In 2000, after Eric Filto left the band, Jacques Gaines added his own name to the band's title, and released the commercially successful album Another Day, produced by Aldo Nova.
As of 2005, Jacques Gaines is working on, or has recently completed, a French-language and solo English-language project. He currently makes his home in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
