Biography

NSR - a 'kick-ass' western Canadian rock band has been around since 1999. Originally a three piece punk / rock band called 'New School Rock', they played some popular cover tunes and a lot of original music. Eventually Richard invited Brendon, his younger brother, to sit in on the drums.
Immediately they had a chemistry together and kept on rockin. In the meanwhile 'sister' Bridgette was coming into her own as a musician and songwriter.
It was inevitable that the three siblings would join up, with their collective talent. As they were maturing, musically and otherwise, they thought a name change was in order (besides the movie 'The School of Rock' spawning a truckload of similarly named bands). So they shortened the name to NSR. Their cousin and very talented musician, Tyler Lindsay joined the band in 2007.
The 4 talents had come together - let the music begin! NSR is gaining popularity in western Canada and are expanding east, west and south, with a number of new tours planned for the near future. Even though the band is still fairly young, and highly energetic, they have everything an audience expects from entertainers and more!. Some highlights of their experience:

- Opened for The Trews and Social Code - Have played over 350 shows and still counting with expansion constantly to new venues;
- Fans from around the world including: Japan, U.K, New Zealand and Australia;
- Creation, release and promotion of full length CD utilizing well known Greenhouse Studios in Vancouver, B.C., Canada;
- Highly prolific songwriters with over 50 original songs under their belts;
- Repertoire of over 80 cover songs from classic rock to brand new rock hits.
- World wide digital distribution of their original songs including Apple iTunes.
-CD sales of their original music fast approaching 3,000 sales.
- Legal representation by J William Nosel, ESQ, a Los Angeles based music attorney.

'These guys are from Lethbridge, they have their own style, and their own sound. Sound that is really missing from main stream rock... the initial comparison I can make is No Doubt. Now give No Doubt BALLS! You have NSR!' - Scott MacGregor, ROCK 106, Lethbridge (www.rock106.ca)

'Good production quality. Damn... is that a female singer? That's hot... as she's got balls... this is good stuff, from arrangement to musicianship' - Aftertheflood (http://www.aftertheflood.net)

'Very well rehearsed... Powerful vocals. Overall production and sound quality are top notch...' - Paul Sabo (http://www.soundclick.com/paulsabo)

Lyrics

Point of Interest

Written By: Bridgette Yarwood

Verse

Music, serious
Pleasure, for the most part
Though when I 'm not playing
it hurts the most
And I am craving
The spotlight like everyone does
But my motivation
Shines through, like a performers boast

Chorus

And I want to know everything about it
I want to engage
All of my soul to participate

Verse

You, made your convictions
And me vice-versa
And hey, I don't hear ya
Just here to intimidate ya
And like all decisions
Down with imposter rock
Here is our only prescription
To show you how to rock

Chorus

And I want to know everything about it
I want to engage
All of my soul to participate
And I want to know everything about you
Indefinitely
Cause the signal is clear you want the same

Verse

Money, you can care for
All you want, but I can tell you
Melody, is more my flavour
All my life, my only cup of tea
Here's what my point of interest makes
I laugh when my fingers ache
And it takes me to a place
Where you'd find all the legends great

Chorus

And I want to know everything about it
I want to engage
All of my soul to participate
And I want to know everything about you, indefinitely
Cause the signal was clear that you want the same
You want the same

Far Removed From

Written By: Bridgette Yarwood

Verse

So your gonna blame all this on me
Cause I am falling short of this entry
I did not make the cut, I feel like running
You know I've never had such average things
I moved around a lot unusually
Suspected it would be hard for my adjusting

Pre-Chorus

And every single word I did not say
It pushed a little more punishment my way
I guess that's what you get for being different

Chorus

Let me know your name
I want to reach out and grab you
and make the most of everyday

Verse

I why should I assume that you're so great
When it's clear your in a lower rank
You did not make the cut, this feels so funny
And so many things that I perceived
As being right-assured and some-what free
Could never live on in the eyes of plenty

Pre-chorus

And every single word I did not say
It pushed a little more punishment my way
I guess that's what you get for being different
And what a system we have today
Where guns are being shot to educate
'cause your so far removed from

Chorus

Let me know your name
I want to reach out an grab you and make the most of everyday

Chorus

Let me know your name
I want to freak out and grab you
And make the most of everday

Stick it Out

Written By: NSR

Stick it Out

In a non-musicians life
A book's being judged by all you types
While in a small non-rhythmic room
You're shaking hands with what's not right

And you stick it out for us but not for them
For the fear of getting caught and beating them
While showing off yourself, your ultimate

There is much opportunity
Not being used at much degree
It's going forward, what matters, it might
It's never backwards and you wonder why

And you stick it out for us but not for them
For the fear of getting caught and beating them
While showing off yourself, your ultimate

For every wrong you pay a price
But you exalt it so that it turns out nice
And your invention for being cool
Puts drive on stage that has us moved

And you stick it out for us but not for them
For the fear of getting caught and beating them
While showing off yourself , your ultimate
Yeah...Stick it Out
