RON SEXSMITH – THE LAST...

It felt special, anyway.” Since making his major-label debut in 1995, Ron Sexsmith has become recognized worldwide as one of Canada’s most renowned songwriters. He counts among his fans Elvis Costello, Elton John and Paul McCartney and has amassed no less than eight Juno Award nominations as Songwriter of the Year.

That helped me remember what it felt like when ...

INCUBUS – 8

Incubus became one of the most popular alt metal bands of the new millennium, setting themselves apart from a crowded field with a tireless touring ethic and a broad musical palette. Formed in 1991 in the San Fernando Valley suburb of Calabasas, California, the band's early lineup comprised tenth grade classmates Brandon Boyd (vocals, percussion), Mike Einziger (guitar), Alex Katunich (aka Dirk Lance;bass), and Jose Pasillas (drums). Their early funk metal sound was heavily influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but broadened over the next few years to incorporate thrash, rapmetal, post grunge rock, and grinding altmetal a la Korn or the Deftones. On tour this summer with Jimmy Eat World.
