It is so soft and warm and emotional, yet also progressive and innovative, full of beautiful melodies and impeccable sounds and structures. Like waves of a warm sea washing over you, with gentle beats and creative sounds and samples.


In the 10 years that Bryce Kushnier’s vitaminsforyou has been around, he has been hailed by music critics and fans alike as one of the early originators of the lo-fi bedroom electronics scene. Garnering worldwide attention through the release of his two critically acclaimed full-length albums "I am sorry for ever and for always" (intr_version 2003) and "The Legend of Bird’s Hill" (intr_version 2006) vitaminsforyou was soon playing sold out shows, festival appearances and tours throughout North & South America and Europe supporting and headlining alongside similarly forward-thinking artists such as Ghislain Poirier (Ninja Tune), The Junior Boys (Domino Records), Matthew Dear (Ghostly International), The Stills (Vice Records/Warner Brothers), Shout Out Out Out Out (NrmlsWlcm Records), Cinematic Orchestra (Ninja Tune), Four Tet (Domino Records), The Notwist (City Slang/Domino Records), Venetian Snares (Planet Mu), Tim Hecker (Alien8 Recordings), B.Fleishmann (Morr Music), Schneider TM (City Slang), and Khonnor (Type Reocrds), just to name a few.

With taste-making publications from the USA to Germany and from Japan back to Canada such as the Wire, De:bug, Stylus, XLR8R, Grooves, Afterhours, and SPIN all singing his praises, vitaminsforyou continued crafting his sing-along sound with shy plundering of pop, psychedelia, fey techno, and folk creating a unique textured listening experience. This exploration was rewarded in the spring of 2007 with the prestigious Song of the Year Qwartz Pro/Art Electronic Music Award for The Legend of Bird’s Hill’s standout single, The Ukranians.

vitaminsforyou has recently finished work on highly anticipated third full-length titled "He Closed His Eyes... So He Could Dance With You". This new body of work promises to expand on his recent dance floor interests while continuing with his dynamic trademark touches that fans and critics have come to love. While his new album will continue melodically where "The Legend of Bird’s Hill" left off, it will also be a departure in terms of forethought and structure from his previous records. “This record will have a more focused musical direction. Having spend a good deal of time this past spring spinning records in clubs and remixing other artists, I wanted to make a dance floor album.”, he states, “I want to avoid the clichés of some of my contemporaries, while exploring what makes people move their bodies and what it takes to move their souls.”


David Foster (drums + electronics): Hamilton resident and veteran of the Canadian electronic music landscape, Foster has been producing and releasing techno since the early 90s on such labels as Plus 8 records, Probe records, Rumour records, Steel City, !K7, and F Communications to name a few. More recent exploits into minimal and industrial have earned him considerable acclaim worldwide as well holding down drumming duties with Domino recording artist The Junior Boys. Foster will be joining the vitaminsforyou band on drums.

Duncan Christie (bass + keyboards): Toronto native and half of the dynamic shoegazing electro duo Madrid (Aporia/Universal), Christie and his band have slowly become one of the cornerstones of the eastern Canadian indie-rock scene. With the recent release of their critically acclaimed second album and remix EP as well as playing alongside such international acts as UNKLE and Ulrich Schnauss, Christie and Madrid have gained considerable attention in Toronto and abroad. Christie will be joining the vitaminsforyou band on bass and keyboards.
