The Bloody Historians

Alt. Country Light Rock New Wave Punk Rock Soul


The Bloody Historians are a rock'n'roll band with influences ranging from punk to country and soul. Their music and live show embraces the style and attitude of the rock’n’roll greats, while maintaining a pop sensibility and simplicity in their songwriting, accompanied by their unique brand of reverb-drenched guitar lines and emotionally driven vocals.

Containing original members from Love City Overdose and Scarlet Halo, as well as current members of New Renaissance, The Bloody Historians bring a confidence and maturity to the stage developed from over a decade of playing in front of many different audiences. The band released its' first EP in March of 2017, "Cigarette Beach", which was self-produced and recorded by the original three members, Ash Dzikowski, Emery Hiebert and Dan Shortt, and mastered by Jamie Sitar of Outta Town Sound (The Guess Who, Bif Naked, Royal Canoe). The four songs give audiences a taste of what's to come from the young band, and the lineup was expanded to include Bo Neufeld on lead guitar and Paul Durrant on keyboard and saxophone just in time for the EP release and the additional shows to come in the remainder of year.

The Bloody Historians brought their live show to the Winnipeg Fringe Festival stage in the summer of 2017, and rounded out the year with a performance on the popular Facebook live web series, "The Village Idiots' Live @ The Roslyn" where they showcased songs off their EP, as well as brand new songs written with the now finalized lineup. This opportunity also saw the band performing a song on local rock radio station 92.1 CITI FM, and garnered the attention of CBC Radio 1 who played the band's single "37 Years" off of Cigarette Beach on air as well.

With these early milestones already behind them, The Bloody Historians have their sights set high for 2018. With plans already confirmed to record new material at Arcade Studios in Niverville, Manitoba early in the new year and some larger shows to proceed this already in the works, the Historians will be bringing their inimitable style of rock & soul to a venue near you, for all who wish to come along for the ride.
