Bio

You never quite know what to expect from a song by Toronto’s Indie Rock upstarts, Suncapades.

“This next song is 50/50 inspired by Barack Obama and the television show Lost,” boasts front man Tim Fisher from the stage of the legendary El Mocambo. He then launches into the acoustic-driven riff of Busy Nestor, a tune that sounds like it could have been born from the late ‘60s-era of the Kinks.

Indeed, the songs of the Suncapades are eclectic and wide ranging, and to pinpoint their influences to a select few bands is quite the daunting task. Reason being, they’ve stumbled upon a truly unique sound, albeit one that entices listeners in lieu of leaving them scratching their heads.

The music and words of the Suncapades are treasure trove of distinctive hooks, melodies and catchy phrases. Oftentimes the inspiration for a new track will spring from the unlikeliest of places. The song OLDMANSEA -- from their forthcoming release EP -- takes its title from the classic Ernest Hemingway novel, while Sunnydale is an ode to the TV cult classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

With all the songs on EP having been meticulously crafted by Fisher in a home studio, layers of guitar, synth, percussion and vocals eventually needed to be reinterpreted for the stage.

Enter the band.

Finding the right musicians to make the Suncapades catalogue come to life involved an ounce of patience and about 750 kb worth of ads on Craigslist. After about a year of searching, Fisher finally found his players, all of whom quickly merged into a tight-knit unit. In the end, this band goes far beyond the sum of its parts.

Sharing guitar duties with Fisher, Paul Hollier is the go-to guy for making the lead parts sizzle. He brings an array of subtle-yet-alluring tone burst to the band’s palette. Meanwhile, drummer Shawn Park bolsters an uncompromising rhythm section with the help of Dave Guindon on bass.

Suncapades are now leaving behind their freshman year as one of Toronto’s most unique and innovative Indie pop/rock group, with aspirations of a record deal and many live shows in the near future. Rest assured, the band is ramped up and ready to take on the city, the country and everything beyond. Here comes the sun!
