Everything is energy, a cycle. The cycle repeats until you get it right and then a new one begins. A perpetual spiral of you. As we embark on releasing our 3rd body of work, Portals, on my (Adi’s) 33rd year of life on this earth, we have expanded as a band.
Banger Music Awards is a celebration of independent music, artists, musicians, bands and radio stations.  It features the rock stars of the future.

In 2022 we will be celebrating our 5th BMA. 75 songs and musicians will be up for awards from artists all over the world. The 2021 Banger Music Awards is slated to be the greatest celebration of indie music you'll ever experience.

(just happened Oct 15th in Toronto)!!
Vibey, alt/rock Toronto artist, looking to revamp the mainstream music trends and break some barriers.
'A South Coast supergroup of sorts, the four-piece peddle the kind of balls to the wall alt-rock that transcends genres and, when lodged in your head, is difficult to forget. Feeling both classic and contemporary, there’s enough going on to please even the most veteran of rock fans, while providing the opportunity of blowing the ears of a younger generation wide open – exciting stuff!'

RELEASING VIDEO OCT 30TH

A high energy hard rock band that offers
 something a little bit different. They take 
the stage with a genuine gratitude and 
without the rock star attitude. They are reminiscent of a newly born liter of puppies when they take the stage. 

Every member is first and foremost, a fan …for real!
Dirt is made up of five members that have all done the grind. They’ve all worked 15 hour shifts to only barley
make ends meet.
