A lot can change over the years, and Vancouver rockers No Island have learned to embrace their transformation. As members have changed and stylistic directions have adjusted, each new version of the band has marked a fresh start and a different perspective on the group's identity — always something innovative, something nostalgic, and most of all an affirmation that the best is always yet to come for those willing to look forward.
Today's No Island is a band of four frontmen. With a sound defined by distinct personalities and expert talents blending together to create something more than the sum of their parts, No Island's character is brought to life by bonds developed over years of touring together across the vastness of Canada.
Writing about life, love, loss, and every experience in between, No Island’s music embraces both the highs and lows encountered in every person’s unending pursuit of better days.
For over a decade, Los Furios have been making crowds dance with their high-energy blend of latin-infused ska, reggae, punk, and rock sounds. After releasing 5 CDs and touring both Canada and Mexico multiple times, the Furios are still winning the hearts of new fans with each and every show they pour their hearts into.
If Big Band Jazz and Prog Metal had a baby, Space Elevator would be that child.
