Sonic Break: Sonic Break is an original, Alt-Rock act based in Vancouver, BC. We are Jamie & Rory on Guitar and Vocals, Ryan on Drums and Ashish on Bass. The band mixes hard rock with acoustic song-writing prowess to create amazing Rock n Roll tunes.
Akeel: Akeel has a wealth of music experience and diversity that few bands are lucky enough to find. 4 out of the 5 members sing, lending to their distinctive full sound and diversity of genre from funk, soul, r&b to jazz and rock. Akeel always aims to entertain in every song they write or cover. Whether it's the powerful, yet soulful voice of lead singer V!CE, the skillful execution of Jacob on the keys, the groovy rhythm of Ryan on the bass, Nikko's hip-shaking, catchy drum beats or Tom's funky, heart-throbbing guitar licks, you're sure to find something to keep you engaged from start to finish. A band isn't a great band without a great lead singer and songwriter. When the extent of V!CE’s talent is revealed, you're instantly brought to the edge of your seat, or scrambling to get to the front of the stage. She then naturally captivates you with her alluring stage presence. There's not much she can't do with her soulful voice, making her a major component in Akeel's formula. V!CE has been performing and singing since a small child. Every great singer needs great support. Often complementing Vice's vocals with his own, Jake not only has a masterful grasp of the keys, but he is also a great singer in his own right. Add that to catchy 3 part harmonies and Ryan's groovy bass lines and you can see why Akeel has the potential to stand among the best in the industry. Two of the members (Nikko/Tom) have been playing, writing and recording music together for 15 years. There's a certain level of communication that is developed between musicians who have played together that long. Their style of improvisation meets deliberate, careful writing and critique, is infectious to the other members who have welcomed it with open arms. Although this style of writing takes more time, the rewards are certainly reflected in Akeel's music. A collection of musicians like this doesn't come around often. Akeel are a proud representation of Canadian music and certainly ones to look out for. Akeel Meaning: wise, knowledgeable, intelligent, educated and intellectual quiet, well-trained, wisdom and decisiveness.
Lily Dippers: The Lily Dippers are a indie band from Vancouver, BC with elements of surf rock and blues. Our first EP, 'Restless Nights' is available on all streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, etc).
Historic LMA (Little Mountain Sound Studios) has been a staple in Vancouver since the early 1970's. Vancouver is no stranger to Great Recording Studios, in fact, some of the best Recording Studios in Canada, arguably North America, lay hidden amongst our high-rises, and LMA is no exception! Managed and owned by Bob Brooks since 1982, LMA saw major success through the 70's, 80's and 90's. Famed Producers Bob Rock and Bruce Levens both began their engineer/production careers at LMA while working with some of the best in the business. The clients who have recorded at LMA include: Bryan Adams, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Metallica, to name a few... While the years have gone by, LMA has changed but the original location remains as a creative space for artists through its use as satellite location for Nimbus School of Recording Media. These days, while our cities young producers and musicians hone their craft at LMS, they are only too aware they stand on the shoulders of giants. And so, the legacy of LMA lives on in the young and the bold.
