Label: Indie
since circa 2004
fAMILIA (latin for family) was conceived in December 2004 when Mer (lead vocals) was asked to join brother Cody (drums, vocals), DJ (bass, vocals), and Bronson (guitar, afro pick) in a band originally called Cherry Acts, but later changed to fAMILIA. Mer's vocal prowess took the already ambitious trio to new heights. Winning a Battle of the Bands in nearby Burnaby, the group next set their eyes on the west coast cultural Mecca: Vancouver. From the East side Waldorf to the west side Mesa Luna to the downtown Buffalo Club, fAMILIA left fans craving more of their unique, stirring sound. The sound is birthed by a childhood raised on their parents stacks of classic vinyl (Beatles, Zepplin, Stones) married to modern indie styles (Arcade Fire, Belle and Sebastian). The result is one that holds up under scrutiny of the closest critics to the carefree dance floor enthusiast leaving out no one in between! Under constant demand from fans for something to listen to at home, fAMILIA set it's sights on recording. A chance encounter with VOGVILLE STUDIO owner and major label producer/engineer JONATHAN FLUEVOG led to a 3 song project soon to be released as fAMILIA's first CD. Tracked at the WAREHOUSE STUDIO with additional tracking and mixing at VOGVILLE STUDIO, fAMILIA was finally represented on record to the fullest of their musical abilities. Recently fAMILIA traveled to Thailand where they volunteered in several orphanages. The money needed for the trip was raised primarily by a concert series they held in Maple Ridge featuring local and out of town bands. fAMILIA continue to play shows across the Greater Vancouver area and beyond while remaining devoted to developing a musical scene in their hometown.
