Nine Mile has evolved consistently for the past eight years, from acclaimed duo to 7-piece band. The root of all of its formations is Nine Mile frontman, and songwriter DAri Pouyat the glue holding Nine Mile to task. In 2004, the Nine Mile Duo comprised of DAri and long-time collaborator, percussionist/drummer Dave Tolley began to tour internationally, honing their sound and releasing two albums, Close to Touch and The Almanac EP. In 2007, after one of many international tours, the duo took a break. While still making Nine Mile cameos, Dave became the fulltime drummer for Xavier Rudd -longstanding friend to both band mates. Meanwhile, DAri stopped to re-group, moved from downtown Toronto to a secluded farm house in Prince Edward County and wrote the next album.

"Don't bore us, get to the chorus!" With a motto cribbed from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and a style all their own, The Sicks have been barn-storming the Vancouver music scene as of late. Difficult to pigeonhole, the band's' sound references a diversity of styles, from down and out country rockers to rum flavored island grooves. The tie that binds it all together is a direct, no-nonsense approach to song-craft and an emotional honesty that results in tight, catchy tunes no matter how you want to label them.
