THE LEFT (unsigned, unpublished) -- A couple of years ago, The Left were winners of Vancouver rock radio station CFOX' s "Seeds Competition" -- this is the same local 'battle-of-the-bands'-type contest that brought Nickelback notice from the international label community. We've been keeping track of them ever since. The Left has released three albums, they've been consistently touring the Great White North (over 300 dates on the books), garnering radio airplay in Toronto and Winnipeg, as well as in their home city -- all without the help of a label or publisher. They're gearing up to put out their fourth LP very shortly -- This time around, however, they've got a solid mgmt/legal team in place to really help generate awareness and interest.
About the sound -- singer Kevin Gau has a BEAUTIFUL voice...the songwriting is mature, hooky and accessible...VERY radio friendly...If you're a fan of the Foo Fighters and even some of the more middle-of-the-road Death Cab or Shins music, you'll enjoy The Left. Check the MySpace page or their official band website for more info and music. This is a band that should be receiving full-on major label attention. People will buy this music. 'Nuff said.
