Every day the glamourous executives at MuchMusic are bombarded with emails, letters and carrier pigeons sent from unknown bands 'cross the country, all scrawled with the same plea: "PLAY OUR BAND'S VIDEO! MAKE US FAMOUS!" Well, fine - your time is now, musical friends. Our new show disBand will take unsigned bands, stick 'em with a music industry guru and put 'em through rock star training. Once they pass the challenge test, each band will perform live for a group of industry professionals - where they may succeed to impress, or may be told to (dun dun dunnn)... DISBAND.

Bio

The stage starts buzzing with a medley of instruments being tuned. As the vocalists take the stage, they look into the crowd and can't help but feel goosebumps. They've never played in a venue this big. Deep breaths...

Tensions are at an all-time high. Yui picks up the microphone.

"What's happening Torontoooooooooooooooooo!"

The roar of the crowd is so strong that the microphones feed back. They know there's nothing to fear.

This is what they've been waiting for. It is no accident.

Soul Plane has always been accustomed to taking off on short runways. Only a few weeks after coming together, the band took to the stage at the El Mocambo in Toronto to play their first gig. It was a battle of the bands. Soul Plane took first place and went on to win enough studio time from the event to put together their first EP -- Countdown to Launch.

The success of this record and continuous dedication to their music landed the band a spot on MuchMusic's DISBAND in the summer of 2008. Soul Plane became the first band on the show to get approval from the judges and to this day their episode (Season 1, Episode 3) is still one of the most played and watched episodes on Much.

Since then, the band has touched down at venues around Toronto and surrounding areas including the Hard Rock, Sound Academy, Opera House, Kathedral and countless more as they continue to play to a dedicated and growing audience.

Their uniquely urband blend of rock, rap and RnB is inspired by the diverse influences of the bands' members, altough it's hard to say what exactly it is about the music that's so moving.

Is it the rocky blues sound that's often attributed to Pearl Jam? Maybe it's the funk of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and an added touch of Roots style Jazz. Or maybe it's Yui and Karla's hip-hop/RnB duet that to the untrained ear could pass as the Gym Class Heroes rocking out with Alicia Keyes.

Whatever it is, it leaves listeners wondering... where can I get some of that? And they always come back for more.
