9 Lives and Counting
9 Lives and Counting is an exciting hard rock band that at its is core built to honour the power of the riff. Sonically diverse, but always melodic vocals are contrasted with the relentless onslaught of the drums. Added to that are bass lines that motivate people to get out of their seats and groove to the songs.
And so began the history of 9 Lives and Counting…
At first there was nothing but silence. Then from the silence came a voice that said “Let there be rock… and let it be good.”
Peter stepped forward. He had his guitar and his songs but no words. Then from across the great divide of the internet came Craig. Brought together by the magic of a mighty list, the List of Craig (no relation), the two went off in search of rhythm.
Their search was vast. Many men would bring their sticks forward and beat their drums. When the dust had settled Jason remained. In his left hand a drumstick, in his right hand a drumstick, and on his drum kit a lifetime warrantee. Knowing they were one giant robot away from forming a musical Voltron, Craig spoke unto the others “Hey my buddy, Scott from my band in high school is a pretty sick bass player and I don’t think he’s doing anything.”
And it was so.
Since the 2014 solidification of 9 Lives and Counting’s roster, the band has been on a steamroll through the Toronto scene. The band has played consistently in various clubs throughout the GTA expanding to all of Ontario for their Spring Thaw Tour. On August 23 the band unleashed their debut, Beautiful Distraction, to enormously positive reviews, international radio play as well as selection as a Generation NEXT feature artist on 94.9 The Rock (Durham Radio). The album is for sale on their website and online stores worldwide.
