About the Artist
Defining their sound with a new blend of modern acoustic and metal, Featherz Edge definitely finds common ground with each listener. The raw delivery of passionate lyrics relates to listeners who enjoy any genre. With realism that is not always found in today’s music, Featherz Edge engages their audience.
The band has made huge strides towards creating their own success. In 2006 they entered Ear Art studios in Delta, BC with Tim Neuhaus to begin recording what would become their first full length album, “Livid” (available on I-Tunes). Three sessions produced a solid angst rock record. The lead off track “Darkness” was featured during an hour long interview with CFNR in Terrace, where lead singer Tanner Belina originated from. In the second session, the band produced another set of potentially classic rock ballads with “Illusions”, their first single. Adding to the depth of the album, Tanner enlisted close friend and performer Kyle Gruninger from Incura to guest on “Quiet for the Moment”.
“Quiet” has been featured on several local (Vancouver) radio programs including “Indie Night in Canada” on 99.3 The Fox. It was in late February of 2008 that the song was finally featured on the “Rock Report” with Todd Hancock and Danger during peak listening times. It was also added to full rotation on Evolution 107.9FM (BCIT).
Featherz Edge has a loyal fan base in Vancouver and has a solid foundation built on professional players. With the right team, watch for them to take off." - Todd Hancock Afternoon / Rock Report Host CFOX Vancouver B.C. Having developed their stage show to be an electrifying experience for the audience, their fan base has grown with each new event. Featherz Edge competed in the regional finals for Bo Dog Music’s “Battle of the Bands” in 2007. Although they were clearly the fan favourite, the band did not win to go on to the National finals. This did not slow their development, but in turn gave them more inspiration to progress on their own path.
“We’re making music that we enjoy. We will continue to grow as a band and reach new audiences.” – Tanner Belina (Vocals).
In late 2007, the band completed the recordings with their latest and best work to date. The last four songs (Séance, Winter, The Guest and Thrush) were the icing on the cake. The band was featured on CTV (National Television) on “First Story”, a show dedicated to Canada’s First Nations. Belina is a full status Native Canadian.
It was in February of 2008 that Featherz Edge submitted their full album to local producer Garth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Chevelle). Mr. Richardson immediately took a liking to the songs and Featherz Edge won Gggarth’s demo contest beating out hundreds of bands for studio time with the acclaimed producer. Featherz Edge will be headed back into the studio with “Gggarth” in the Summer to record. Featherz Edge plans on embarking on their first cross Canada tour in the Fall, following their recording session with Gggarth.
The album was recorded by local reigning champion of the indie rock circuit, TIM NEUHAUS of EAR ART MUSIC STUDIOS. The release is set for Spring of 2008 and already the hype for this band is getting out of control.
