The Scenario

The Scenario


London, ON natives The Scenario have been making converts everywhere they are heard with their unique brand of high energy dance rock. Now with their debut EP in hand, the band is preparing to take their message to the masses.


Rising from the turning tide of fresh innovative rock music within Canada, The Scenario first hit the scene in 2004, fronted by original band members Ryan Lynch (guitar, formerly of The Boston Post), Tyler Avram (bass) and Matt Varey (drums), all from London, Ontario. They started writing songs together, building a small intimate set to introduce themselves to the public eye and to speculate some local attention. The Venues they played, however small, enabled the band to show huge potential and catapulted them into a more serious direction when it became evident they had something special to offer.

As the band began to grow in confidence, they progressed musically and their set list began to grow. Attention was building, demand was growing too, but the foundations remained uncertain. The Scenario tried and tested some 5 singers until finally, in early 2006, they hit jackpot with former solo artist Mikey Lavereau (now plays guitar and sings lead vocals). Upon testing Mikey for the band, it was evident to Mikey and Ryan that all the pieces of the puzzle finally fitted; they worked as a four piece, re-working old songs and penning new ones, until finally Mike accepted the full time singer position and The Scenario, with its final line-up, were ready to rock.

Musically, the band have matured from the patented garage punk band sound into a fresh tangent of contempo classic rock, industrious and energetic; their growing catalog shows a distinct blend of their musical abilities, from the slower, more melodic rock ballad, Whisper, to the highly charged, vibrant side splitter, Don’t Wait Up. Their sound is diverse, but married in identity through distinct vocals and the smooth transition of musicality through each of the tracks. All in all, the sound is ear pleasing, addicting and endearingly fresh.

With a respectable tally of local shows under their belt, the band enjoyed playing the college scene in hometown London, and used the attention they were able to accumulate to secure them their producer, Brian Moncarz (Universal Music’s The Junction). The band worked closely with Moncarz to put together their recently released self titled EP.

With the EP now available, the band will continue to do what it does best. Take it’s musical energy to the masses and make converts everywhere they go.
