The “Other Side of Five” began 4 years ago as a Classic rock cover band and they are fast becoming one of Canada’s top indie bands. Although not easily categorized into any particular sound or genre; this ‘home-grown B.C. band’ has since developed their own unique sound described by fans as a blend of Country Rock mixed with Adult Contemporary. The musical influences of OS5 range from The Beatles, Stones and Eagles, to more modern sounds like John Mayer, Nickelback and Jason Mraz.
In 2008, OS5 entered the studio to create their self-titled CD which is scheduled for completion/release in Feb/March 09.
These talented musicians have a combined total of over 30 years experience with some members touring professionally. Like many song writers, this band writes their own music based on past relationships, both good and bad, as well as everyday life and who they are.
OS5 has a vision, which is: “to create music with lyrics that people can relate to by writing songs that they can sing along with that will hopefully remind them of a special time, place or memory in their lives.”
All of the members hold down full time jobs. One side is at work from 9-5, and the other is creating their own sound; hence the name: “Other Side of Five”.
