EP - "Guerrista" released July 2010


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Vancouver-based band consists of five members from all over Canada: Lyndsay Johnston, Taylor Jeffels, Pat Thom, Matt Danyliuk, and Chris Henderson. Guerrista has developed a progressive rock/blues sound with a retro feel that has caught the attention of music lovers of many different genres.

The band was formed in the early spring of 2009. Lyndsay, Taylor, Matt and Chris all met while attending recording school and there were often talks of getting together and playing music with each other. One day it finally happened, and the others were introduced to Chris’ friend and former bandmate Pat Thom. Initially, the idea was to hang out, play some music, and have some drinks. One thing led to another, and after a few more jams, they wrote their first song. They learned to write as a group, and continue to do so, coming up with their own brand of gritty rock and blues.

After playing live gigs in Vancouver for a few months, Guerrista continued to write and went into the studio with Engineer Brodie Smith. They decided to record live off the floor to give the songs a sense of Guerrista’s tight yet gritty rock n roll feel that they are known for live. The band completed their first self-titled EP and took it on the road. They left Vancouver for the first time as a band and toured through Alberta. The band received positive responses at all of their performances, and were welcomed by old friends and new fans. The trip was a success. They returned home a tighter band with a strong new drive.

With an EP under their belt, the band continues to spend the majority of their time writing, and creating. Guerrista plans to release a full length album in 2011. The album is sure to be full of catchy fresh new material. Some of their influences and musical heroes include The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, The Rolling Stones, The Dead Weather, Muddy Watters, Cat Power, Peggy Lee and many more. Guerrista is a must see band full of energy, talent, and charisma. Their sound is a fusion of dirty/gritty, rock, blues, and soul and will satisfy the listening needs of music lovers young and old.
