THE MANVILS deliver an intense, unrivalled live show with scorching guitars and bellowing vocals that merge into a modern take on the psychedelic blues sound pioneered by The Yardbirds, Velvet Underground and the Stones. Having shared the stage with prestigious bands including The Stereophonics, The High Dials, They Might Be Giants and Brian Jonestown Massacre's lunatic frontman Anton Newcombe, The Manvils enthusiastically abandon themselves to intoxicating rock liberation, converting new initiates to their ever-growing legion of fans every time they take the stage. http://www.themanvils.com

The ORCHID HIGHWAY deliver amped up Rock and Roll for pop symphony junkies. Heavy harmonied, organ saturated, overamplified Rock and Roll that leaves you sweating, breathless and wondering why your lover can never be this good! http://www.orchidhighway.com

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 British Columbia. "Pink Floyd and Radiohead would be proud. Geoff Birch keeps it real for Welkin as a band truly ready to tour Canada to sold out shows." -- Soulshine http://www.welkinband.com

DANNY ECHO - British-inspired melodic rock that sounds like The Flaming Lips of Jagger, with a Beatle Beck-oning Bowie & Barrett while getting Kinky in the Cars with the Radio(head) on. http://www.myspace.com/dannyecho

ORCHARDS & VINES reveal a rich, dark musical territory of compelling songs and lyrics, with powerful, dynamic female vocals fronting raw, intense guitars and drums. Their explosive modern sound invokes an intense musical experience. http://www.ovweb.com

It’s the first of three EPs recorded in three great cities – Vancouver, Toronto and Chicago – each holding plenty of meaning for The Manvils. The Eastward move has mean... more info

Orchid Highway (Psychedelic Rock)

“Trousers-deep in a rapturously ongoing obsession with mid-60s Britpop and psychedelia” Nerve Magazine “Take this grand, technicolor, psychedelic, rock and roll dragster out for a spin... what pop music CAN be when it isn’t being held hostage!” Radio Bandcouver “A dream come true to fans of Badfinger, or bands of more recent vinta... 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

Danny Echo (VanPop)

With life spinning out of control on tour in the UK as "The Ryecatchers", Danny and Mark decided it was time for a change... Returning to Vancouver, Danny bumped into an old flame, Shannon, and after a few drinks she decided she would rather be in a band than a relationship with him. Danny reluctantly agreed, phoned Mark, and formed Danny Echo i... more info

Orchards and Vines

ORCHARDS & VINES reveal a rich, dark musical territory of compelling songs and lyrics, with powerful, dynamic female vocals fronting raw, intense guitars and drums. Their explosive modern sound invokes the incendiary vibe of artists like Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Nirvana. more info
