Hard Rock from Vancouver BC

In December 2006, a band was formed and a unique sound was born, they are called Axiom.

Their jam sessions bring them together from all over the Lower Mainland where they master compositions molded from their own musical guidelines. Their sound, which has been likened to such musical talents as Tool, Godsmack, System of a Down, and Alice in Chains, combines hard hitting lyrics with dramatic structural changes.

Having two lead/rhythm guitarists brings a more complimentary dynamic to every song. One lead/rhythm guitarist, Jeff McGiverin, grew up during the music phases of the '70s and '80s; therefore, he was influenced by quite a range of musical artists, everything from the sizzling southern fried Texas blues guitar of Stevie Ray Vaughan to ZZ Top to many classic rock artists. The other lead/rhythm guitarist, Chris Panton, took guitar lessons at the age of eleven after a keen interest that started several years earlier. However, his lessons only lasted a couple of years when he realized that he had an ear for music. Chris has an eclectic taste in music from jazz, blues, classical to rock and heavy metal. He credits his guitar heroes as Page, Hendrix, Steve Howe, Randy Rhoads, Zakk Wylde, and Slash.

The recent addition of Scott Hagon, completes the guitarists as the bassist. Scott has played a variety of instruments since taking up the drums and guitar in his late teens although he now finds the bass as his main instrument of choice. His influences range from The Beatles to Pantera.

Leading the underlying rhythm faithfully on sticks and kicks is Bruce Windsor. Growing up with a jazz singer father, he was highly influenced by music and knew early on that playing music would be his goal. He was inspired by bands such as Metallica, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath which lead to his passion for the drums. Bruce also lends vocal harmony to the powerhouse vocals of the lead singer, Cole Pritchard. Cole has always had a passion for singing since he was able to talk. His natural ability to write poetry has easily transitioned into lyrical compositions. Each song is carefully crafted and sung with an intensity fit for its powerful message. His inspiration comes from many sources including a long list of talented artists such as Chris Cornell, Maynard James Keenan, Eddie Vedder, and Gordon Downie.

Being self-taught musicians, the five uniquely talented members of Axiom have come a long way. Since their first show together at Volume 11 in Surrey to their latest show at The Bourbon, they have received resounding positive responses. From their growing support it is evident that the sound of Axiom is making fans out of rock lovers of all ages.
