The spectrum of modern rock is typically split into two camps, with slick commercial chart-toppers on one side and flavour-of-the-month indie acts on the other. And then there's Vancouver's One Bad Son: an honest to goodness rock 'n' roll band that occupies a world of its own, cutting through the bullshit with cranked up amps and a resolutely DIY approach to music making.
Singer Shane Volk, drummer Kurt Dahl, guitarist Adam Hicks and bassist Adam Grant first joined forces in Saskatoon, SK. After releasing two albums and establishing themselves as one of the Praries' most explosive live acts, the four friends relocated to Vancouver in 2011 and inked a deal with 604 Records.
Having already carved out a fan base on the west coast, the band is now poised to release its self-titled third album. Produced by Default drummer Danny Craig, the album's 11 songs span everything from thunderous, '70s-flavoured rock to moody grooves and melancholic acoustic numbers. With some of these tracks already having made a mark on radio, the world is quickly learning about One Bad Son's independent spirit and timeless approach to rock music.
