Anything But is the result of chance, perseverance and luck. Chance; where Jiffy Schellenberg (lead vocals & rhythm guitar) met Robbie Q (drums) in a bar in Mexico at 3am on January 1, 2011. Perseverance; grinding away going out and seeing band after band perform until Jiffy saw Jamil Alexandre (lead guitar) playing on stage and asked him to be part of this project. Luck, having Niall McCarney (bass & backup vocals) play at an open mic where Jiffy was the host and then turning out to be an excellent fit in the band.

With Rob being the first real member of the band, Anything But is still a little green. That being said, every member has been playing music most of their lives which is why Anything But is such an exciting new band. In the time they have been together, they have played dozens of shows in and around Vancouver, gone on two tours (one to Calgary and the other to Winnipeg), recorded a six song EP titled 0x01 and have just completed a 10 track album titled 0x02. 0x01 has received airplay on CFBX, CiTR, CJSF, UMFM (University of Manitoba), CBC Radio 2 and Roots Radio International.

The brainchild of Jiffy, Anything But delivers a strikingly original brand of lyrical rock ‘n roll. Anything But’s songs tell evocative stories. Sometimes those stories reflect the struggle of a lifetime, sometimes they perfectly capture a powerful moment, but each one rewards repeated listens. The band’s genre bounces between folk, pop, heavier rock and even psychedelic. The powerful marriage between melody and lyrics is what defines Anything But and is the reason their style of music is both accessible and richly layered. We’re not nothing, we might be something… we’re Anything But!

Our lead guitarist moved to the island, but not before he helped record our latest album, "0x03 - Live off the Floor" (click our bandcamp page). It consists of some older tunes that we wanted to record (and they couldn't have been done without Jamil on lead). We are trying to make a serious dent in 2016. We have 3/4 of a new, FULL album written; we are in the throws of booking two tours, one in late March up to Golden, BC, and a second to Winnipeg late June (and we have done these tours a couple of times before); most importantly, we are looking for anyone serious about music and is EXCITED at the idea of kicking ass, writing tunes, burning down stages and doing something prolific. - Last confirmed Jul. 11, 2017
