Influences & Inspiration
Our musical influences come form all of the typical "classic rock artists", as most musicians are (The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and so on) but, we have always been heavily influenced by our own homegrown, Canadian artisits, such as.. Blue Rodeo, Sam Roberts, Big Sugar, Neil Young, Chilliwack, Lighthouse, The Guess Who, The Tragically Hip and on and on... Canada has provided us with some incredible talent in the past, and continues to now, and as a local Canadian band we are very aware of paying tribute to those artists.
