"The Fireseeds" - Self-titled CD released December 2008.

"Wayward Woman Blues", "Blood from a Stone", "Itchy Feet", "The Rhino", "Timebomb" are five songs which can be fouind on YouTube as posted by "Maphean".



There are very few original bands out there which appeal to people from all walks of life the way The Fireseeds band does. Metal heads and folkies alike can be found at their shows, singing along to songs which are new to their ears. Even the dance club goers enjoy the funky grooves this band puts out.

You can tell from the band's sound that the Fireseeds are strongly influenced by late sixties and early seventies rock bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band and Cream, to name a few. Post nineties influences would include bands such as The Black Crowes and Clutch. It should go without saying that The Fireseeds draw little from eighties music.

Founded by guitarist and songwriter Ross vanEldik in 2006, The Fireseeds is a five piece original blues/rock band from Edmonton, Alberta. After going through a few different members, as most bands do, vanEldik (the only original member) transformed the band from a three to a five piece band by adding a keyboard player and a frontman. The band now consists of: Ross vanEldik - guitar, vocals; Mark Mercier - lead vocals, percussion; Humbert Mederois - bass, vocals; Ross Bulcock - keyboards, vocals; and Derek Fettes - drums, vocals.

The Fireseeds is currently working on its second full CD and hopes to have it out by the fall of 2011. The band is very proud to have an ever-growing repertoire of more than forty original songs which fans seem to love. As one fan put it, "The Fireseeds have all these great songs that you feel like you've always known but have never heard until now."
