RUN GMC delivers a perfect blend of swinging high-energy roots country rock.

The MATINEE is emerging as one of Vancouver's finest songwriting teams. Blending a passion for fine ale and finely-crafted tunes, Matt Rose and Matt Layzell have combined to offer a unique sound that is quickly attracting both national and international audiences. Matt Layzell has spent over seven years playing countless shows across the country as lead singer of the successful Vancouver rock group Ten Ways From Sunday. Matt Rose has been playing guitar and writing songs for over a decade in noted Vancouver rock/country band Fera, The Matlocks, Jeff Johnson, TwinCity and Day Release Program. Together, the two Matts write songs that paint pictures of empty bottles and broken hearts, broken bottles and empty hearts... and maybe the odd unpaid speeding ticket. With their first full-length album out now, it's show-time for The MATINEE! http://www.myspace.com/thematinee

WELKIN - Magical, bleak and beautiful, the music of Welkin is fearless, feral, ethereal and epic in proportion. Welkin is the brainchild of singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist and pianist Geoff Birch. For inspiration, Birch writes his songs in a cabin in the Cascade Mountains of BC. They will be performing many new songs as they prepare to record their 3rd full-length record. "Welkin deliver the kind of imaginative, deep and textured rock that is the perfect soundtrack for dreams of storming the castle, surfing that endless summer wave or simply sitting stoned alone in your backyard. Welkin genuinely seem to have their finger on the sedated pulse of the stoner rock culture." - 24 Hours http://www.welkinband.com

The Matine (Country Rock)

Shoot out the lights, and stone the roses—there’s some strong autobiography going on between the lines of The Matinée’s debut full-length album, We Swore We’d See the Sunrise. Taking its title from a line in “L’Absinthe”— the true story of a night of madness and delirium experienced while on tour in Quebec told between bouts of spa... more info

welkin (Art Rock)

'This Is Your Blood All Over Me', the title of welkin's 3rd record--a double-album epic opus steeped in the wilderness--evokes provocative images and importantly hints at the experiential process Geoff Birch uses to write welkin songs. Retreating to the backwoods of British Columbia and getting away from the city has certainly given Birch a richer ... more info
