Bio

Based out of Oakville / Toronto, Fishkiss has been performing and writing together since 2004. A wide range of influences have led to the creation of their unique blend of alternative rock and folk, characterized by the strong melodies, vocal harmonies, poetic lyricism and the use of the acoustic guitar and the violin extensively within a rock ensemble; the Fishkiss mission is certainly one of maintaining a sense of melody and poetry in alternative rock.

Fishkiss places a strong emphasis on songwriting. Live, Fishkiss draws its audience in with "creative lyrics which tell poignant stories" (CNC Music Productions, "Unsigned Artist Search"). The vivid natural imagery invoked by the music and lyrics of songs like Cedars and Stars and Bancroft County define the unique character of Fishkiss' songwriting.

In February 2006, the song Cedars and Stars was judged a semi-finalist in the lyrics only category of the 2005 International Songwriting Competition, finishing as the only Canadian semi-finalist in the category out of thousands of submissions from all over the world.

Fishkiss began performing extensively in the summer of 2006, when Zak Ward joined the band. As a full band, Fishkiss combines the folk sensibilities of their songwriting with the excitement and energy of alternative rock. Melody, harmony, story-telling, and a passion for music are what brings Fishkiss together, and what Fishkiss brings to the stage.
