Feeling a bit camera shy


Torsion was formed in Basements and Garages in Newcastle & Orono, Ontario in the early months of 2002. Three founding members Russell Hawley, Chris Lyttle & Jon Lewis formed a core group. After experimenting with several other local musicians, the trio finally found a dynamic that fit. However, to make the group complete it was collectively felt that they needed a vocalist front man. So, in October 2002, The trio met Matt Carson through mutual acquiantances and he instantly 'clicked' with the band. Very little debate was needed, and Torsion was formed. After working constantly on a debut release since 2004, and adding Matt Lewis on percussion duties, the group is about ready to let their sounds be heard. Throughout that time period, despite having an inconsistent recording schedule, the band continued to write and evolve as a band. "We need to get the older songs out there, to let the listeners know where we're coming from, and with our new material I feel it's much more mature and I think the E.P. will show listeners the developing process behind it." - Jon Lewis. Torsion hope to follow-up their debut E.P. with a much more focused recording effort. Hard work, and perseverance is starting to pay off for Torsion, and time will tell how the band will evolve next.
