Pioneer Video

 Halifax, Nova Scotia, CAN

Pioneer Video is an indie-rock band that attempts to weld together musically complex ideas with catchy pop melodies. We have a flair for the epic song, which lends well to the live shows. We try to use dynamicism and technical ability to its fullest while still remembering people want to sing along


Pioneer Video hails from remote parts of Cape Breton, namely seaside Mabou and the woods of Foot Cape, Inverness.They have since migrated south to Antigonish, Nova Scotia to attend St. FX University. Twin brothers Keith and Kyle MacDonald make up the rhythm section and have been heavily involved in the Cape Breton celtic music scene at very early ages. All the while they’ve been playing jazz,, folk and rock locally. Andy Rankin, like Keith and Kyle; is a multi-instrumentalist but also at the song writing helm of the band. Andy played locally as an acoustic songwriter but it was only a matter of time before he combined forces with the MacDonalds. Nowadays Pioneer Video is on the indie rock scene and has made it its personal mission to make every live show as energetic, epic and memorable as the next.


Our upcoming self-titled EP is our only recording at the moment. Prior to the release we have been recieving airplay from Nova Scotia campus radio stations and a few others, (namely Caper Radio, CFXU The Fox, 101.5 The Hawk, 98.9 CJFX, etc.),
