For Montreal based band Videoman, the line between song and story is often blurred. By using their backgrounds in opera, literature, and creative writing, the four ­piece band strives for music that resonates on a personal level. Obsessed with bridging a cultural gap between opera and indie, Pasquale D’Alessio, a trained opera singer and classical composer who was a resident artist with Opéra de Montréal, employs both haunting and melancholic melodies reminiscent of Radiohead and The National.

After touring their debut album Colourblind with performances at Pop Montreal, Canadian Music Week, and The Horseshoe Tavern, the band caught the attention of artist and producer Patrick Krief [Automanic]. Videoman began work on what was set to be their definitive album, spending meticulous hours in studio, bouncing from Montreal’s iconic Mixart to Krief’s intimate home studio. The end result was Salt and Wine, an album that is at once nostalgic, wistful, and tragic.

With an explosive live set, and live vocals that are unlike anything else in the indie scene, Videoman is not to be missed.

Look out for Salt and Wine, and an accompanying string of Canadian tour dates in late 2016 / early 2017. Pasquale is also writing an original opera, The Imaginings to which he has partnered with guitarist Mitch for the libretto (screenplay), it is earmarked to be workshopped in 2018.
