Fall 2007 marks the release of Stereobuss's first independent studio album, “Song is the Lifeblood”. The Vancouver based pop rock group was formed in late 2006 by Tom Howie, who is the lead singer, songwriter and visionary of the emerging group. Tom, along with lead guitarist Jason Nett and an experienced lineup of contributing artists spent several months recording the album in West Vancouver.
The record features eight memorable tracks with honest, raw lyrics about self-exploration and life’s purpose. Guitars, trumpet, bass, piano, keyboards, and percussion are combined to create the album’s diverse and soulful sound.
Included in the collaboration of musicians on the album, Sarah McLachlan lends piano and background vocals to Stereobuss’ talent. “Song is the Lifeblood” was produced by Mowgli (Sarah McLachlan), Tom Howie and Jason Nett and engineered by Chris Potter (Bryan Adams, Sarah McLachlan).
After recording the album, Tom and Jason recruited the talented local rhythm section that is Denham Trollip (drums) and David Marion (bass), to fill out the band’s live sound and bring more energy to the stage. With their diverse range of performance styles and capabilities, from rocking full band shows to chilled out acoustic renditions of the songs, Stereobuss is a versatile and stunning live act.
The band is currently focusing on live performances to share their sound throughout Western Canada. After playing shows and doing press in Calgary in July and August, they have returned home to British Columbia this fall, to play and promote their music.
Stereobuss is a band dedicated to artistic freedom and exploration. Their goal is to bring innovation and fresh sounds to the music industry as they continue to create their music. Expect to see and hear great things from the collaboration of emerging talent, as Stereobuss is a musical force that has only begun to deliver.
