Jack Kuzmyk (Vocals/bass)
Sean Connor (Drums)
Vincent Belanger (Guitar)
Myke Mcilroy (Guitar)
first met in September 2015 while attending the Music Industry Arts program at Algonquin College. The four quickly took a liking to each other and soon after jamming in Jacks basement for the first time in the cold of December, Nessie was formed. What first started as a groovy rock band quickly shifted and matured into the new Nessie. Heavier, more technical, precise, melodic and above all unique. With the full length album just on the horizon, Nessie hopes and strives to be the new taste of rock and metal the genre's need today.
The Nicotines
The Nicotines are a hard-rock act from Montreal, QC Canada that excel in energetic, heavy rhythms coupled with pop-sensible melodies. Inspired by rock acts since the 60s, The Nicotines deliver a powerful style of rock and roll never heard before.

Queer noise violence.
Noise Toronto.
Experimental beats from Toronto.
Intangerines makes sounds that flow through time unhindered, caught with a butterfly net or with a javelin. The sounds are put together to get a better glimpse into his own psyche and for the pure joy of art. Drawing on a variety of acoustic and electronic instruments, radio transmissions, tape samples, environmental sounds, as well as his own voice, he produces some varied and often strange pieces of experimental electronic in an all-encompassing meaninglessness.
