The Nightowls started as a band in 1999. Originally called Burgo And The Nightowls, they were composed of Mike Ritchie and Mark Bachynski, as well as Patrick Burgomaster, Isaac Mundy, and Sean Mahar. As the members went to pursue different things (Isaac to divinity school, Patrick to art school, Sean to a woman in Vancouver), Mike and Mark continued producing and creating music under the name The Nightowls.

Besides creating their own music, Mike and Mark produce music for others under the name Nightowls Productions. They have produced, recorded, and played on 5 albums for bands including Anew Airship, Mary-Grace Koile, and The Caravan.

The Nightowls music was recently featured in the NFB film "Tulku", directed by Gesar Mukpo and produced by Kent Martin.
