The Stone Pines are a five person band based out of Vancouver B.C. Josh Larsson (Lead Singer), Ryan Krumins (Lead Guitar), and Corey Fenton (Rhythm Guitar) have a longstanding history playing music together, and were excited to be joined by Clark Buchanan on bass and "Slick" Tim Watson (James Byrnes, Sam Roberts) on drums, The Stone Pines have been playing the Vancouver scene for about a year and are tenacious about creating a new brand of soulful classic rock and blues with a wide range of sound and energy. The band recently recorded two songs at the famous Warehouse Studios, mixed and produced by Eric Mosher (Franz Ferdinand, AC/DC, Chickenfoot).
Jack Mercer & The Whisky Bandits:
Working on fishing and tugboats since his teens and penning songs during down time with callused hands, Mercer is part of a new wave of musician. It's a wave that started back before over-produced digital distortion, that goes back to a time where steel strings and a voice where enough to get you on the radio. If he's not becoming known for his already vast catalog of songs, word-of-mouth is definitely spreading about his command of a stage. After taking the Whiskey Bandits on a tour around Western Canada this summer, Mercer returned home to Vancouver to a warm welcome that included a grand prize win at the 2011 Summer Sessions hosted by the Roxy Vancouver and 99.3 the Fox.
