Biography

August 17, 2010, Jim Connors joins Mark and Virginia Nieuwenhuis to form Pacify and play a three hour acoustic show after seven days of preparation. The three of them locked down a weekly slot at the Century House in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Two months later, after an impressive Hallowe'en Show, an on looking bass player Jerry Wernicke approached Pacify with ideas to expand upon what he saw. Jerry's... former band mate Trevor Sather was a perfect fit on drums and original songs were hatched within hours. By the beginning of 2011 the band is really finding their sound, influenced by tribal beats and naturally aggressive vocals, the band feels a new name is appropriate. July 8, 2011, MITIGO debut a three hour set at The Tipper Restaurant in Vancouver, BC, Canada. With an amazing response from their first show, the band has now been propelled as a whole into a new phase of individual musical growth. Mitigo (verb) [Meh-Tee-Goh] I make soft, ripe, or tender.
