Combining memorable melodies, powerful lyrics and an aggressive Rock sound, LTG delivers the genre’s subtleties and punches with style and vigour.
Growing up together in garage bands through their teens, guitarist Pomy Bhatti and drummer Rob Beveridge formed Manna and worked on various projects with producer/manager Peter Karrolll and later with producer Paul Higgins. Tracks that the band recorded received national college airplay and video rotation on MUCH MUSIC. A discovery that one of their songs had been used in an “adult entertainment” video was a funny highlight of Manna’s tenure on the canadian scene.
After Manna disbanded, Bhatti and Beveridge joined ranks with vocalist/songwriter Stuart Alves. Coming from a solo career signed to producer John Dexter’s label, Alves had also gained exposure on projects such as Masters of Da Game with airplay across Canada. Blending the song-writing talents of Bhatti and Alves and the chemistry between the three players, LTG was born. After extensive auditions, bassist Dan Peters completed the line up.
LTG’s many influences, (Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles, Metallica, Coldplay, The Foo Fighters,) come out to play on their recently completed EP, mixed at Greenhouse Studios by Juicemix Productions. LTG’s first single “Sickness” has been receiving radio airplay across Canada, including regular rotation on 99.3 the Fox.
“Life to Go's seven-song CD has … songs to recommend it and … heartfelt singing. You're increasingly aware of a strummed, dirty-sounding rhythm that fills up all the spaces.” – Tom Harrison, the Vancouver Province
Accentuated by their incredible focus on creating memorable live shows, and the energy shared between artist and audience, LTG’s recording is truly brought to life on stage. From their inception, LTG proved that the stage is their true musical venue. Playing sold out shows around Vancouver, presented by radio station 99.3 The Fox at The Roxy and recently added to New Music West festival, the largest music industry gathering on the west coast, LTG is certainly on their way.
Unsatisfied with the current musical landscape, LTG has set the goal of writing timeless Rock ‘n Roll for all people to enjoy and songs that will engage their audience. LTG intends to follow through on that goal and does so every time they hit the stage and play that first chord.
