KROME - Forged on the fires of spirit, dedication and adrenaline, Krome reinstates rock’s primal path with songs that maintain an uncompromising rock edge. Having played over 200 shows and 4 cross-Canada tours, their sound showcases tightly-structured harmonies, hook-filled melodies and deep, brooding guitars.

ONE BAD SON - is a world class rock outfit with a writing style in the vein of Soundgarden and Thin Lizzy and an over the top live show that draws comparisons to bands like The Who, Led Zeppelin and GnR. The band moved to Vancouver after 5 years of making waves in their hometown of Saskatoon with opening spots for Godsmack, Default and Buckcherry.

GOOD GRIEF! - is a rock band that kicks your ass while satisfying your sweet tooth at the same time. Hailing from Vancouver, the band features insightful lyrics, addictive melodies, and a straightforward, edgy sound that invokes the best days of the '90s with a modern twist. The band is the musical vision of Conor Brandt (Flipswitch, On Holiday, Voices in the Attic) who, while contributing creatively to those projects, felt the need to put together a collection of songs he'd written on his own.

The SKELETON KINGS - Distilling smart 70s hard rock sensibilities (Uriah Heep, Led Zep, Van Halen etc), The Skeleton Kings are a welcome addition to Vancouver's rock world featuring the considerable talents of power trio Ronnie Lee, Ferdy Belland and Ritchie Parker.

The spectrum of modern rock is typically split into two camps, with slick commercial chart-toppers on one side and flavour-of-the-month indie acts on the other. And then there's Vancouver's One Bad Son: an honest to goodness rock 'n' roll band that occupies a world of its own, cutting through the bullshit with cranked up amps and a resolutely DIY a... more info
