Who is OpenDoor? They are a collective of four people; four men; four minds, each one from similar but different places. Clark and Mike: childhood friends who began playing music together in high school. Jack and Clark: co-workers with shared musical interests. Mike, Bert and Clark: university students who probably spent too much time listening to, discussing and recording songs. The degrees of association and lines of connection between and among the individuals of this band are only the intricate foundation for what would become a unified collaborative effort to create honest and uncompromised art.

After more than half a decade of musical interaction in various forms, Clark, Jack and Mike found themselves re-grouped and in need of a vocalist. Enter Bert, the extroverted, flamboyant, friendly, wild and zany front man with pipes to spare.

The fit was immediate with all four. Mike, the rock, the voice of reason, base on which all can be built (no pun), with solid fingers and tone to match. Jack, the heart,who creates the pulse, drive and rhythm. Clark is the depth, texture and colour, who adds the extra dash of nuance to the landscapes created in sound.

Flash through two years of writing, practicing, honing and growing (both as musicians and people) to now. OpenDoor has become what they always knew they would. They have become a force of communicative and emotive energy.

With a unique, interesting and uncompromising blend of alternative, progressive and art rock, this band explores issues inherent to the human condition. Life. Death. Love. Emotions. Illusions. Ideas. Humour. Tragedy. All of which is done through the always skillfully penned and interpretable lyrics of Bert.

The music (with which EVERYONE has a hand in composing) is always expansive and dynamic. The care with which it is all crafted and joined is immediately apparent, upon listening. The love and passion for beautiful and powerful music is and always will be the driving force behind this band. Each one of the members has led interesting lives filled with joys, gains, losses, mistakes, lessons and growth. This is what each one brings to the table, in order to express through music and share with others. The greatest joy OpenDoor has is creating their art and having the opportunity to share it with others. Connection, love and understanding.
