Bio

In 2002 Dave Bowman and long-time friend and collaborator, Jackson, began a writing relationship that would later become much of the creative axis behind the Seven Lies sound. Seven Lies captures the energy of classic rock without treading the waters of nostalgia and blends it with melodic electronica to create an emotional edge. The resulting explosion that can best be described as progressive, refreshing, and fully realized.
By the fall of 2003, Seven Lies became fused with the creative influx of local rockers: Murray Atkinson, Graham Pence, and Morgan Littlejohn. Each new addition drew in a cache of influences (Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins, Led Zepplin, Oasis, Dj Tiesto) and with them more devoted followers. Forming a following in the underground club and rock scene of Vancouver, Seven Lies truly began to temper their unique electronic rock sound. Seven Lies captures the energy of classic rock without treading the waters of nostalgia and blends it with melodic electronica to recreate an emotional edge reminiscent of New Order. Extensive private rehearsals served to harness the resulting explosion that can best be described as progressive, refreshing, and fully realized.

No one could have predicted the overwhelming support that would lead Seven Lies to set a record attendance and sell out their very first show at The Roxy in Vancouver. Seven Lies continued to win over fans at every local venue that could contain their spontaneous and powerful live show. Locally, they began transcending traditional genre boundaries, even opening for hip-hop acts Rascalz, Swollen Members, and Sweatshop Union proving their wide audience appeal and live show energy. Breaking away from regional rockers, traditionally dominating the Vancouver music scene, Seven Lies quickly found support at Brand X Records.

Spring 2004 they released their first single "Letting Go" to radio, which was well received by over 50 stations. This was followed with the release of "She's So" in September, which was again widely received across Canada and Northern States, on both College and regional radio. With the album still in the works, Seven Lies followed the positive response of their singles with accompanying videos after winning a Factor grant for "She's So".

A video release party thrown to preview "She's So" also added to local excitement for this band, when an over-capacity crowd of 600 people turned up and struggled to gain access to the event. Media coverage was extensive as fans lined up until closing to view the new Seven Lies video. The band's popularity continued to grow, but now internationally, via "Yahoo Launch", other music sites and online based Street Teams. The Seven Lies website traffic continued to accelerate with over 30,000 song downloads, 800,000 visitors and the message board having over 200,000 visitors with over 2000 fan posts. These are some impressive numbers for a band that had not even released an album. Performing in "Hollywood North", Seven Lies have also won over many famous fans such as K-os, The Killers, Ryan Phillipe, Justin Timberlake, Jason Statham, Tara Reid, Christian Slater, and Kelly Osbourne. With a clear vision, Seven Lies confidently self-produced their debut album over 12 months. Now as Brand X Records prepares for the release of their debut album, Seven Lies is gearing up for a spring/summer tour.
