Dirty Rock from Vancouver BC
Stemming from Vancouver's hotbed of local musical talent CATAPULT fuses progressive rock, metal, and pop blended with an acoustic southern influence. Dirty rock for the masses.
Conceived in 1997, forming CATAPULT proved to be more difficult than anticipated. Singer/Acoustic guitar player MYK SHAFLIK who's past includes a long history in the Vancouver music scene with credits that include vocalist/songwriter for DemoLISTEN award winning band OPIUM UNDERGROUND, as well as JOKERS WILD, NASTY TOYZ, RANSOM, and a host of other cover and original bands early in his career.
The search appears to be over for the right fit on drums. CATAPULT is proud to welcome AUBREY TROTTER to the fold. AUBREY comes from a slamming rock background that includes time with Victoria's BELT. AUBREY's four on the floor with flair style of playing will prove to excite the song writing. Replacing Steve Gaunt on guitar is JAY JARVIS. JAY played most recently with BandFEST winners NEW EDEN. His solid tone and straight ahead no fuss approach can only improve the overall dynamic of CATAPULT. JAY also plays keyboards which will further develop the song writing of CATAPULT. The band also recently acquired JASON DEKONING to fill the bass position. Formerly of MOTHERSON and LIQUID LOUD, JASON's solid grooves and great ear for arrangement is a definite plus for CATAPULT and their fan's. EP set for release early Winter '05.
