Redwoods is a hard rock band from Vancouver, Canada, formed in the early 2010s. They've found a way to blend the coolness of 70s rock, vibrance of 80s metal, and grit of 90s grunge into a diverse rock sound offering nothing short of excitement in today's music scene.

Lyrically, the band wears their emotions on their sleeves, however, they do not shy away from revelling in the euphoria of young adulthood when desired. Their songs capture the highs and lows of romance, and aim to expose the fine line between right and wrong in our society... with the occasional straight ahead party anthem.

Their performances are fun, sweaty and infectious, breathing electricity into each member of the room like a contagious rock-and-roll virus.

With their first full length album Daybreaker in the rear view, Redwoods has teamed up with producer Matt Roach at Rain City Recorders to refine their sound, and is eager to unleash more rock & roll into the post-pandemic world.




Gone Sugar Die

Gone Sugar Die is a musical collective created by Mike Hindert of The Bravery and Canadian songwriter Patrick McWilliams. McWilliams met Hindert via e-mail after attempting to be a part of his record label, Merrifield Records. The group also features drummer Anthony Burulcich of The Bravery, as well as producer/guitarist Marshall Gallagher, of Teenage Wrist and 3OH!3. Their sound has been described as synth-punk, cheeky and "dirt-pop"; a homage to Hindert's nickname "Dirt".

In October 2018, the group released a cover of "Days Go By", by Dirty Vegas.

In May 2019, Gone Sugar Die was announced to take part in Canadian Music Week, performing with The Death Set and King Khan. As part of their set, the band covered Deadmau5 single ”I Remember”, as well as the Ramones song "I Wanna Be Sedated".

For the release of their first original single, "Heartbreak Jewelry", the band signed with ONErpm and Rough Trade off-shoot, Revolver. The song and music video, animated by Hindert, premiered June 14, 2019 on Earmilk. It was also announced the single would be followed by an EP titled Blaack Heaart.

The follow-up single, "Candy Is A Heartthrob", was released on August 9, 2019. The song premiered on Rebel Noise, alongside a video directed by McWilliams showcasing the notorious homelessness in Vancouver and the opioid epidemic in the United States.
