Phonix Bio:

An irresistible dance party unfolds every time the eleven members of this youthful, vibrant and soulful ensemble hit the stage with their exhilarating live show.

Reuben, Jocelyn, Tim, Mike, and Blair form the largest and tightest five-piece horn section in town. Joe, Dave, Andrew and Markus lay down heavy hitting rhythm section grooves that bring out the Funk, R&B and Soul foundations of the band. Vocalists Geneva and David fearlessly front The Phonix with stunning vocal prowess that is a product of many years of experience. Geneva’s versatility and dynamic delivery stem from the influences of Carmen McRae, Bonnie Raitt and Eva Cassidy. As for David, “Think Zappa meets James Brown meets Tom Waits meets Stan Getz meets Marvin Gaye. Prepare to be dazzled, amazed, moved and amused.” John P. McLaughlin of The Province.

Since their inception in 2009, The Phonix have filled up many Vancouver venues and aim to expand their fan base as they embark on their first tour of the BC interior in the summer of 2010. On the opening night of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, The Phonix billed with the McLean Girls at the Plaza of Nations right across from the opening ceremonies. In February, The Phonix hosted a fundraiser for Haiti earthquake relief where they billed with the Oye Collective (Saskatchewan), the Boom Booms, the Star Captains and Jackée Guillou.

In May of 2010, The Phonix released their first two tracks debuting original material. "What Would You Say?" and "Feelin' High" fuse influences derived from the likes of Tower of Power, James Brown, Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. These songs and the many more in production are the first steps of The Phonix in leaving their past as a cover band and becoming a distinctly original musical act. http://www.thephonix.ca - Photos, videos, songs and more!
