Bio

It is said that Planet4 band members never sleep. The music born out of insomnia, is speaking to audiences that get new Punk/Emo music and who see what is already starting to happen on the landscape of popular music. As a new world of energized rock music from the heart ushers in, and the old world of gang banging ghetto fabulous music is pushed out to the sidelines, there’s a massive audience waiting to hear something from the heart. Something that is real but still has energy that kids can rock out to. At the heart of Planet4 music, there’s a common theme of taking a unique perspective on virtually every subject. We push the envelope in our songwriting process that is rooted in the classic rock approach. An acoustic guitar, a melody and harmonies. A good song has to stand on it’s own without all the distortion and effects. Then we can kick it up with the Planet4 energy and heart. The gritty sweet vocals, chunky rhythm guitar and melodic lead guitar hooks that support the song, let the good songs shine and communicate a heart felt emotion filled with adrenaline.

Jimmy Keegan (Lead Vocals) was born in the small town of Belleville, Ontario and moved to Montreal where he spent most of his teen years. The support of artists and the way people connect so freely to one another is what makes Jimmy call Montreal home. He now lives in Mississauga where he and his band mates rehearse for shows and write songs several days a week. An artist in every way, Jimmy is responsible for the artwork and overall art direction for the band including the website. His musical influences are rooted in the early R&B Motown era, and have evolved to appreciate modern day icons such as Prince, Green Day and other bands that are contributing to the evolution of popular music like My Chemical Romance and Jimmy Eat World.

Michel Losier (Bass) was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario and how lives in Mississauga, Ontario. Mike as we call him in the band is fluent in French and English. He’s an electronic engineer by trade and you could say he’s the resident techie when it comes to our gear. He has influences in heavy rock and alternative, like Sound Garden, Metallica and Red Hot Chili Peppers. His bass style is a bit foreign to the punk way of doing things but it’s just one more element that differentiates Planet4 from other punk bands out there today.

Matt Ashton (Lead Guitar & Backing Vocals) was born and raised in Toronto. His influences are The Beatles, Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, The Who and Bob Dylan. Matt has as huge appreciation for these classic rock icons and for music that communicates through strong melody. Matt is a soft spoken down to earth guy off stage and is a confident, hard rockin performer on stage. His melodic guitar riffs and his sweet harmonies are a big part of Planet4s' trademark sound.
