John Layman - Frostbite Festival

"The response to Mr. Vein by our listenership has been huge. The number of requests for "Years for Strangers" is often greater than songs charting in the top ten!"

Keith Ellert - Morning show host, 96.1 FM CKRW "The Rush"

------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the north, comes an avalanche of rock and roll! A hot sound from one of the last untapped frontiers of Canadian music, the Yukon. MR. VEIN's debut CD "No Big Deal", is filled with infectious grooves, great licks, driving rhythms, and vocals that range from soothing to haunting.

Lead by Years For Strangers, Mr. Vein is receiving play at several stations across the north, fitting ROCK, CHR, AND HOT AC formats. Hot on its heels is the second single Crazy, making a huge splash with a uniqueness that defies you to keep it out of your head! The marriage between old school and modern rock, mixed with a fresh flavour, gives this debut a great potential for going several cuts deep.

MR.VEIN IS:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TOM INGLIS - Guitar - "last of the great smokers" In some strange experiment combining DNA from Keith Richards and Edward Van Halen, Tom was born. A great head start to a life long love affair with his axe. Tom has played professionally for over 15 years, toured from coast to coast, and spent a year at the Guitar Institute of Technology. There are two types of guitarists, those who play, and those who plug a jack cord into an artery and let their life blood of music flow through. Tom goes through a lot of band-aids.

TIM NAYLOR - Bass / Vocals - "a towering force of bass" Without a doubt, Tim is one of the most remarkable singers to hit the music scene in recent memory. With a set of pipes that seem to tap into the roots of the mountains from which he hails, his vocal stylings span from a young and restless Elvis, to the Righteous Brothers, with the depth and intensity of Jim Morrison. This is not a voice you can mistake. With the bass around his neck right up front with the rest of him, Tim helps power the driving sounds of Mr. Vein. Playing since he was 4, Tim's been playing professionally for 15 years. He's also an accomplished guitarist and drummer. Every other instrument in the world he just plays well.

DAN DUNPHY - Drums - "the good-looking one" Growing up with the channel stuck on MuchMusic and the kitchen cupboards for a toy box, Dan's childhood friends were the pots, pans, and tupperware. It should be no surprise that Dan loves his drums the way he does. Whatever this may cost Dan in therapy, it's a windfall to the band. His steady beat, and unrivaled rhythm is the backbone for Mr. Vein.

Crazy
Lyrics: Tim Naylor, Tom Inglis

Today is the day for love
No worries it'll be ok
And I'm dreamin of you tonight
Arms wide open, it'll be all right

So if you love me baby, don't stop cause maybe

It's all right to be a little insane
And it's all right for me to be crazy about you
It's all right to be a little insane
And it's all right for you to be crazy about me

Cause deep down inside of me
Somewhere there's a heart of gold
And I'm dreamin of you tonight
Arms wide open, it'll be all right

Cause if you love me baby, don't stop cause maybe

It's all right to be a little insane
And it's all right for you to be crazy about me

And it's all right for you to be crazy about me

And it's all right for you to be crazy about me

Bad Reputation
Lyrics: Tim Naylor, Tom Inglis

With nothin in my sights
I take the world by stride
And it feels so right
Just to be so young wild and free
Just to be so young wild and free

Even if it kills me
To the pace I keep
You're never, never gonna catch me
You're never, never gonna catch me

Between wrong and right my bad reputation
Between wrong and right my bad reputation

Solo

I'm gonna live my life
Even if it kills me
To the pace I keep
You're never, never gonna catch me
You're never, never gonna catch me

Lyrics: Tim Naylor, Tom Inglis

You, ya made your first mistake the way you let me down

Kiss My Heart
Lyrics: Tim Naylor, Dennis Brulotte

You're blocking the door, I don't love you anymore
But just in case I need your pretty face doll, come on in
Welcome to my world baby, let's give it all you got
Let's get down and dirty honey and show them who we are

Kiss my heart I broke it, on my way to you
Kiss my heart I broke it, you know that it ain't true

I never gave you any credit for the way you held me up
Tonight your smile is a searchlight baby I'm in your line of fire
Sucked into the lime light and then we all just disappear
Into the horizon where there's no one left to blame

Kiss my heart I broke it, on my way to you
Kiss my heart I broke it, you know that it ain't true

Solo

You can see into my fortress of scars
Shadows are fading and the pain is coming on, coming on

Kiss my heart I broke it, on my way to you
Kiss my heart I broke it, you know that it ain't true

Kiss my heart, yeah
Kiss my heart, baby
Kiss my heart, yeah
