Two Apple Tobacco creates thought-provoking and topical music, fusing genres and pushing the boundaries of the indie rock idiom. Their sound is Theatrical Funk Rock - "Zappa meets The Muppets" - classic rock riffs, funky grooves and jazzy melodies meet folk, blues, soul, latin and hip-hop. Actors by day, musicians by night, the members have gained quite the reputation for their dynamic live show. By tradition, the band begins every performance with a song by Frank Zappa.
In the fall of 2013, the group will release their first full-length album: a pan-apocalyptic fantasia entitled Squinter’s Paradise.

Have you ever caught a glimpse of a rapping gardener?
Matt “Glympse”, the emcee of the Vancouver group The BC Trees, has a flow like a cold refreshing stream of consciousness. Conscious of his relationship with the world around him, “This is what I am, this is what I stand for.” Matt’s genuine, honest and unique view is bold and compelling. His lyrics can be angry and passionate; like in the track Revolution with the lyric, “Put a knife in the back of your people, then invented the axis of evil” juxtaposed with songs about connections with nature as in the track BC Trees where he, “Writes his art on the bark of a paper birch.” The BC Trees are not a typical hip-hop band. Their socially conscious lyrics transcend the genre and the musical range makes them appeal to an intelligent audience. Matt’s lyrics are backed by his brother Eddie’s solid bass lines. The brothers produce much of their own music and are currently working on a follow-up album in collaboration with other artists.

Lost Numbers is a four-piece orchestral-folk band with a classical guitar, flute/bass flute, violin and upright bass line-up, with the occasional cameo by drummers. Our material consists of a combination of hyperliterate lyrics drawn from literature, art history, mythology and video games, backed by tight instrumental arrangements and vocal harmonies.

Two Apple Tobacco (Frank Zappa inspired indie jazz-rock)

Based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, Two Apple Tobacco creates thought-provoking and topical music, fusing genres and pushing the boundaries of the indie rock idiom.
