Bio

U-Phonik, the new music phenomenon out of Charlotte, NC, is redefining the standards of alternative pop/rock. Their music stands out from today’s garden variety radio pop with its innovative, powerful melodies and a unique cultural flair. Blend these elements with creative lyricism, high-energy performances, and the vibrant personalities of the band members, and the result is an irresistible sound that is U-Phonik. Fronted by soulful and charismatic Stephan Angers on lead vocal and the artistic guitar playing of Louis Fiset, U-Phonik delivers an unparalleled blend of the sweet British sound and the modern Alt Rock American edge. Flanked by the dramatic bass lines of Francis Rufiange and Mike Salvatore’s rhythmical stylings, the foursome is progressive, edgy and undeniably talented.

U-Phonik got its start in Montreal, Canada, where the band garnered local success with their French music. Their single "Marguerite" quickly rocketed to the top of the charts at Quebec City’s renowned radio station, CHOI 98.1 FM, and received substantial airplay on Quebec TV’s Musique Plus. A desire to broaden their musical horizons saw the band expanding boundaries by recreating their music for an English-speaking audience, creating a new style infused with their original French-Canadian culture.

In 2001, U-Phonik relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina, where the band has established itself as one of the best acts in the region. The band is now expanding its fan base throughout the Southeast. Headlining at popular nightlife hot spots and clubs as well as colleges and universities, U-Phonik quickly attracted the attention of the area’s music industry executives and radio stations. U-Phonik was featured on WEND 106.5’s "The Best of 90 Minutes" compilation CD, a disc highlighting the best of Charlotte-area musical acts. During 2003-2004, the band was appearing in many events and festivals such as Dogwood Fest in Greenville NC (opening for Georgia Satelittes), Azelia Fest in Wilmington NC, WingStock in Hilton Head SC, Music Law Conference in Gainesville FL, Florida Music Festival in Orlando FL, Uncle Sam Jam in Charlotte NC (opening for Lifehouse), etc. In Creative Loafing's "Ultra Extreme Best Of 2003" edition in Charlotte NC, U-Phonik was chosen by the readers as the "Best local rock or blues band/artist" and Stephan Angers, the band’s lead singer, for the "Best local male vocalist" award. U-Phonik also was the "Spotlight Artist" and the "Buzz Act" on SongAndFilm.com. Their music will be on the upcoming Shut Eye Records (Atlanta GA) "Buzzlighter" 7 and Abray Records Alternative Addiction 4 CD compilations.

The most important element of U-Phonik’s music, though, is the passion which drives the band. Their love for music resurfaces again and again in their songs, reaching out to their audience with a colorful style that will move you.
