Who is Freeflow? For anyone who's seen the band perform, the answer is simple: they're an energetic band that brings people out of their seats with a compelling combination of songs with great hooks and great vocal harmonies. A much greater challenge, however, is describing Freeflow's sound, which features everything from hip-hop and funk to reggae and rock. They have often been compared to bands like The Roots, Sublime and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, yet have nurtured a sound distinctively their own. "We have six members in the band with very different musical tastes but lots of common ground," said lead singer Jason Evans. "What we try to do is combine the music that feels the best to us. We can't help but fuse elements."

Since founding members Jason Evans (vocals), Reece Worth (guitar), Wilson Padmos (keys), Ryan Davis (drums), and Simon Davies (bass) came together in 2001, the band's music has evolved – something that is more than obvious to anyone who has seen the band live or listened to Freeflow's two well-received CDs.

In 2005, the band took a major step forward by inviting MC E-Spliff to become a permanent member. E-Spliff, who’s roots are buried deep in dancehall and hip-hop, has been a major player in Vancouver's underground scene for over ten years and adds an abundance of energy to the already vibrant line-up. The dynamic of the band has since blossomed and has encouraged Freeflow to push it’s sound and live performance to new and exciting levels.

FreeFlow has been together for almost six years, and has played great Festivals and venues with world-class luminaries from around the world, the band looks to the future with even greater hopes, dreams and aspirations.

REDEYE EMPIRE

Redeye Empire is generating massive buzz and earning the respect of fans and industry alike. They started their musical journey in early 2005 after a surfing trip down the West Coast generated a number of great songs. Friends since high school, co-lead vocalists Gabe Davis and Mike Redmond put together a band in Vancouver, BC. While Sublime, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley and the Chili Peppers are sonic influences, Redeye Empire has emerged with a Rock/Reggae/Ska/Pop vibe, style and sound that is all their own.

In 2007 Redeye Empire toured the US in support of G.Love & Special Sauce, playing sold out shows in major US markets at venues like The Vic Theatre in Chicago, House of Blues Orlando and Stubbs BBQ in Austin Texas. Upon returning from the tour the guys immediately started working on their sophomore album with producers Chris D (Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, G.Love) and Ben Kaplan (Shakira, Trapt, Hedley) recording the follow up to their self-titled debut album. The album was released in 2008 and is titled ‘The Diary Of Everett Miley’ in honor of their tour bus driver.

Redeye Empire has recently toured the US with Pepper who have headlined the Warped Tour. Redeye Empire once again played shows at venues such as Stubbs BBQ, House of Blues Dallas, Orlando and Myrtle Beach as well as many other large venues from California to Connecticut. Redeye Empire has also toured with Fishbone and has shared the stage with Slightly Stoopid, Michael Franti and Xavier Rudd.

Keep an eye out for Redeye Empire as they continue to break new ground and reach out to new fans worldwide.

Redeye Empire is Gabe Davis (Vocals/Guitars), Mike Redmond (Vocals/Guitars), Eric Stephenson (Bass), Ben Brown (Keys), Andre Arsenault (Lead Guitar) and Ryan Davis (Drums).
