About

Can you ever start writing original music too late?  The fans of this five piece rock band from central Canada don’t think so!  Come with them as they record, release and perform their unique brand of Canadian rock music! The band writes about socially relevant issues from the times we live in.  The songs are underpinned by echoes of musical influences like The Tragically Hip, The Killers and sounds that span the last 5 decades of rock.

The band’s genesis is a familiar story: 4 people get together in 2014 in a Winnipeg basement trying to recreate the music of their idols.  The addition of Derek Gaboury’s keys in 2019 opened up a new dimension for the band’s music.  In 2020 former Wakefyre drummer Jeff Haney joined Derek and the 3 original members: Jay Yarmey (Vocals/Acoustic), Travis Wog (Guitar/Vocals) and Terry Ferguson (Bass).  With a plethora of cover tunes, the band was ready for their assault on the Winnipeg music scene!  Unfortunately the pandemic induced restrictions derailed their plans for live shows. There was a silver lining in the craziness of that time as the restrictions and isolation awakened the band’s latent creativity. What followed was a tidal wave of new music created by remote collaboration. When restrictions were lifted the band refined their songs and began performing and recording.

The rest is history, now they are ready to release their first 3 original creations. You have a seat on the ride if you want!  Come along, because they’ve only just begun!
