Projektor is:
Jahmeel Russell vocals/bass. Jahmeel pens the lyrics; his driving and sometimes plaintive vocals are juxtaposed with his solid bass foundation. Former bands include Kittens and Malefaction.
Jeremy Gillespie guitar/keyboards. Jeremy's moody and often haunting guitar lines create a distinctive Projektor sound and are reflective of his former work with Nemo.
Sean Stevens guitar/moog. Sean's creative rhythm tracks were honed with Transonic and Novillero.
Darren Achorn drums. Darren provides a very strong backbone, his performing style developed with Meatrack and Walter Paisley.

Intense, dynamic music with an impressive and inspiring live show! Projektor are about to release Young Hearts Fail, the follow-up to their successful debut record, Red Wolf Glass.

Since their inception the band has consistently been recognized as one of Western Canada's most exciting new bands. Projektor was selected as one of the top 5 "Up and Coming Canadian" new artists by What! Magazine and chosen as finalists in CBC radio's "Big Break" contest.

Having toured Canada several times, including dates with Eric's Trip, Moneen, Radiogram, and The Waking Eyes, Projektor is a regular fixture at such noted events as Canadian Music Week, Western Canadian Music Week, New Music West and The Halifax Pop Explosion.

After more than a year in development, the band has completed their new album Young Hearts Fail with the assistance of Juno-winner and Grammy nominated producer, Brandon Friesen. The music represents a movement away from the epic atmospheric sound of Red Wolf Glass to a more immediate and driving rock focus.
