Fresh off playing OSHEAGA and EDGEFEST, Xprime delivers the kind of rock-pop songs you want to sing and dance to, packed in an explosive performances. They've made a name and living for themselves by playing their original music and beloved classics all over Ontario and Quebec. Weaving their way through harmonies, fancy fretwork and beats with ease, it's safe to say that the guys - Neil Carson (bass/vocals), Steph Mercier (guitar/vocals) and Phil Taylor (drums) - know their way around a well-written pop/rock song. Their new EP "PM" (released with eOne Music Canada) is a delicious sampling of just that.
The trio has spent the last five years perfecting their signature sound and their exciting live performances, turning new listeners into true fans. Xprime’s music has a strong Alt-Rock/Pop sound and has found a heavier, more mature sound with the new EP called “PM” (June 2015) following their first LP “The Album” (March 2014) and the EP “Here We Are” (2012).
Based out of Niagara Falls Ontario, Xprime is creating a buzz in the Canadian music scene. The band has recently played Osheaga, Edgefest 2 and Canada’s largest New Year’s Eve show in Niagara Falls; and have opened for the likes of Weezer, the Arkells, Keith Urban, USS, Nick Jonas and Lights. Recently having signed their first record deal with eOne and a summer tour boasting major festival appearances, the guys are on their way to delivering their new sound in energy-packed performances across Canada this year.
Pin Up 11.30 PM
Pin Up has worked endlessly to find a sound that combines pop/rock elements with and honest, raw approach to the instrumentation and lyrics. Working alongside engineer/producers Bill Szawlowski (Ventura Digital Audio) and Ryan Szawlowski (Maven Digital Media) they were able to achieve a sound that is unique and refreshing to the mainstream pop archetype.
