NOISE IN THE HALL - Armed with only a keyboard, a guitar and a box, Noise In The Hall has no problem filling sonic space and getting audiences on the dance floor. Their honey-drenched vocals, intricate melodies and memorable lyrics are perfectly accompanied by unique guitar riffs and groovy bass lines that conjure up a sexy hybrid of r&b, pop and punk.

QUIET KIDS reinvented the wheel and threw the baby out with the bathwater. They are voices, guitars, synthesizers, bass, and drums. They are major and minor, but mostly fast. They are and they are not Vancouver. Quiet Kids are the best thing since sliced bread... hopefully you like sliced bread!

The FURNITURE is aiming towards the future of pop music, representing themselves with undeniable style and Indie rock sensibility. Featuring the talents of Aramis Starfish, Johnny Wildkat and Lana Ryma, their songs are infused with strong melodies that are sometimes heavy and sometimes light, but always rock.

CHINA SYNDROME is a melodic power pop band that combines driving pop hooks with elements of garage rock and new wave. Their CD "Nothing's Not Worth Knowing" examines the struggle to achieve a work-life balance, the agony of micromanagement, and our obsession with work and social media at the expense of real relationships. Despite the dark subject matter, the album is musically bright as the band shows off a variety of styles from 70s Stones to angular funk grooves to psychedelia, augmented by aural surprises including pump organ, claves, Jew's harp and 80s synths.

China Syndrome (Rockin' melodic powerpop)

China Syndrome is a rockin' melodic power pop band from Vancouver, who combine the driving pop hooks of The New Pornographers, Teenage Fanclub and XTC with liberal dollops of 60s and 70s classic rock influences. The Georgia Straight has praised their 2015 album The Usual Angst as “infectiously jangly” with “fantastic, hooky guitar;” The Pro... more info
