Feeling a bit camera shy


Stemming from Vancouver's hotbed of local musical talent CATAPULT fuses progressive rock, metal, and pop blended with an acoustic southern influence. Dirty rock for the masses.

CATAPULT was conceived in 1997 by singer/acoustic guitar player MYK SHAFLIK, who's past includes a long history in the Vancouver music scene. Myk’s credit’s include vocalist/songwriter for DemoLISTEN/SEEDS award winning band OPIUM UNDERGROUND, as well as JOKERS WILD, NASTY TOYZ, RANSOM, and a host of other cover and original bands earlier in his career.

After taking the fall of 2003 off to reevaluate the direction of the band, Myk decided a new lineup was in order to spark some soul into the band. In January 2004, bass player JASON DEKONING joined the band. Jason, formerly of MOTHERSON and LIQUID LOUD, provides solid grooves, a great ear for arrangement, and is a definite win for CATAPULT and their fan's.

January also saw the addition of JAY JARVIS on lead guitar. Jay played most recently with BandFEST winners NEW EDEN. His solid tone and straight ahead no fuss approach can only improve the overall dynamic of CATAPULT. Jay also plays keyboards which will further develop the song writing of CATAPULT.

The recent addition of AUBREY TROTTER on drums, has finalized a solid lineup for CATAPULT. Aubrey, formerly of Victoria’s BELT, has experience in progressive rock and metal, and will strengthen the backline.

CATAPULT is currently in the studio finishing up an EP. Look for this new material to arrive in late September 2004.
