Tip The Scales all started because of the internet.
Feeling determined to give music another shot, Ian posted ads on usedvictoria.com in dec 2013.
One of the first responders was Tanner and what started out as an audition for Ian on fox in Tanner's metal band "Pledge of arrogance" turned into a musical bond over progressive metal.
Ian and Tanner began jamming in 2014 with just guitars at first. After a few weeks, Tanner offered to switch to drums and around the same time another response through the ad brought in Tom. In the emails, Tom's enthusiasm and charisma for vocals caught their attention.
Tom began learning bass parts to songs that Tanner and Ian were composing but later found his true passion in only doing vocals.
The three have continued to song-write and jam over the past year and now have several finished songs and dozens of other ideas floating around.
A year later, we find ourselves looking to bring in a full time bass and lead guitar player.
