With the release of their Self Titled debut EP and a nomination for ‘Best Alternative Rock Song’ for their song ‘The Coming’ at the 2007 OIMA (Ontario Independent Music Awards), Docile has managed to gain a lot of attention in a short time. This can be attributed to their approachability, both sonically and personally.

Docile has further established themselves through intimate performances and band competitions and have lent their support and talents to charitable organizations such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation, AMREF and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Having opened up for such bands as Silverstein and the Marble Index along with the commercial use of the song ‘Stop’ on, Docile continues to make their mark with a sound that hints at their influences stemming from but not limited to that of Incubus, Tool and David Bowie.

Docile has gone through some minor changes recently adding bassist Chris Simpson to their already impressive rhythm section led by Mike Smith on drums. With such a solid foundation in place, Dave Roselle (guitar) has managed to create a unique approach to playing his instrument. By adjusting their line up slightly, Docile has created more space in their songs, allowing for more experimentation and a blossoming of deep grooves in their already hook-laden songs. With the introduction of Bobby Noakes on vocals, Docile has forged an original sound inlike any other hard rock band. Their ability to merge deft rhythms with sweet organic melodies is nothing short of beautiful.

Resonating with a sound that is sophisticated yet youthful, Docile lends itself to a diverse fan base. Constantly challenging themselves and growing through their music, they are entering a new and inspiring phase in their brief yet accomplished careers as up and coming musicians.
