Citizen (2010) - EP
Down Over Me - Single



Music is everywhere and in everything.  It is the soundtrack to the shapes and sounds of life and every once in a while a band comes along with an catchy take, a creative expression of sound that truly resonates.  Forming in 2009, Citizen takes the stage.
Their sound is the best of everything, or at least that’s how the members of the group put it.  Soulful vocals, classic rock and roll guitars over grooving bass lines, a whirling Hammond B3 and hip-hop influenced rock drumming.  Citizen brings these dynamics together in intelligent and inspired song writing.
Since its inception, Citizen has had a tremendous response.  Only weeks after its debut, Citizen received a nomination for Best Original Group at the 2009 Niagara Music Awards.  The coming months found Citizen performing on the stages of some of the area’s most popular festivals and clubs, securing a management team and reaching larger audiences.
Popularity for the group grew and finally reached the desk of Juno Award winning Michael Hanson, Producer and former drummer of Glass Tiger.  The result is Citizen's debut CD/EP. 
“The stage brings this contagious feeling of being a part of something bigger than any one of us could be doing on our own.  When that feeling spreads to the crowd it’s incomparable to anything else.”
In early 2011, Citizen released its official music video for the single Down Over Me and found a new home among online fans. They have developed a popular youtube video log (VLOG) to further document the members' progress between recorded releases.
The group is Brad Moore on vocals and rhythm guitar, Mike Macdonald on lead guitar, Aaron Moore on bass, Dragan Rusic on Hammond B3 and synthesizers, and Dean Beaudoin on drums.
