Lost Vultures essentially started in 2003 when Mark Rowe began writing his earliest songs by himself after being in a number of bands in the Calgary area. He wasn't satisfied with the style of music being played by other bands at that time, so he decided to write enough songs to record an album, with the hope of finding a new band that would share his interests.

After two years of solo writing and minimal acoustic performing, Mark moved to Kamloops, BC to go to university and put music on hold. In January of 2005 a friend suggested he record the songs he had written in a local Kamloops studio. As luck would have it, the first studio that he made contact with was owned by Henry Small of Small Wonder and well known Canadian band, Prism. Henry offered to record the songs and waive his producing fees because he liked the feel of the songs. They recorded five early songs there before Henry sent a copy of the disc to his son Nick in Vancouver who was interested and wanted to be involved in the project.

Nick Small, a raw, minimalistic and self taught guitar player who was tired of hearing the mainstream, generic bands of this past decade was also looking for a band that fit his style of play, rock n roll. After getting a hold of Mark's demos, Nick felt inspired and soon a meeting was arranged. The two sensed something special was possible, and set off to create music that would separate itself from the trendy, 'cool' and popular try-hard music of today.

Ben McCartney, a punk rock enthused bassist and Maht Carolei, a hard hitting animalistic drummer, first met competing in rival high school rock bands. Soon, fate intervened and the two bands broke up, allowing Ben and Maht to join forces. After a few failed attempts at finding the perfect band members, fate once again stepped in (are you noticing a trend?). Nick found Ben and Maht's pictures and music on the internet, and after expressing their fondness for heavy sound and old school rock, it was full speed ahead. Soon Mark, Nick, Maht and Ben came together, Lost Vultures was born, and the four set out to give the music industry a well deserved shake up.
