"Touching Tunes"

When asked the dreaded question, "How would you describe your sound?" band members from Mr. Feeley and the Touch prefer not to commit to any particular genre.
The Nelson band, all alumni from Selkirk College's music program released their first CD, Sinking Ships, over the weekend and lead singer and guitarist Geoff Ross says the band is still exploring their musical optoins.
"Music is no longer one dimensional," says Ross. "You don't have to sit sown to one sound."
That means the band- now in its second year with the current lineup of Ross, Richard Feeley on bass and vocals, Aaron Wrench on drums and Josh Boudreau on guitar- keep the audience entertained by offering many different sounds, Ross says.
Sinking Ships was almost entirely locally made. The band worked with local company Serpico Audio Productions to master and manufacture the CD and Brett Faulkner sat behind the boards as engineer and helped produced Sinking Ships.
Feeley says they've had tremendous help from people in the Kootenays, whether it was coming to their shows or just offering support.
"People had faith in us and that really helps," Feeley says. "It makes you feel good about what you're doing."
With the CD out, Feeley has high hopes they'll get more exposure without them having to tour everywhere. "It'll get around on its own now."
Making the CD was a challenging project (We did this with no money," he says) but very satisfying.
"We took four people from different lifestyles, different parts of North America and all came together. We swallowed our pride and tried to work to a common goal."
The two laugh about the band name, which they insist shouldn't be read into. They just thought it was a funny play on Richard Feeley's name. They admit the name might sound like the main act in a travelling show's centre ring and almost stopped them from getting a few gigs, but their sound has always won people over, Ross says.
"Being able to be respected with a name like that is a big thing," he says with a laugh.

Originated 2006 in the southern BC's Kootenay region, Mr. Feeley and the Touch have quickly made a name for themselves everywhere they go. The band was formed while attending Contemporary Music and Technology studies at Selkirk College in Nelson. Since graduation in '06 the group has recorded a full-length album, toured across BC and played alongside other great acts such as BC/DC, Sweatshop Union and the Plaid Tongued Devils.
Performing in festivals, bars, halls and theatres has helped to enhance their already finely tuned musical abilities. Each member of the band brings something exciting to the ear and together they form an impressive entity of high-energy music and thrilling stage performance that never fails to win the house over.
The ensemble is primarily an original songwriting group with many tunes in the bag, but has always impressed the crowd with their seemingly endless repetoire of cover tunes.
Be it a private party, an all ages show, a metal show or the groovin' bar scene, Mr. Feeley and the Touch is committed to making every show an exhilarating one. Touring groups, local bands, and venue owners all agree this band has what it takes to entertain any crowd and leave a lasting impression every time.
