Before we started recording movie music, we had already been playing together for years. From 2010 to 2014 we busked on Granville & Robson, terrorizing pedestrians until they had no choice but to vote us into the Straight's "Best of Vancouver" listing for three straight years! To top it all off, we then won a $10,000 grant for a documentary to help with the release of our last street album "Imperative Drive".
As we shifted to the studio, we gravitated to our natural roles: Thomas as a composer, Jarrett as a percussion system specialist, and myself as a producer.
On paper, this production team has much to offer:
Band with literal "street-cred"? Check.
Composer with a Masters in Performance? Check.
Engineering credits on Juno-winning projects? Check.
But when we enter any commercial studio, grand hall or makeshift recording space, we gain more from our chemistry than from our technical credentials or merits, proving to us that the real magic lives in the moment.
