since circa 2000
Intense, dynamic music with an impressive and inspiring live show, Projektor have released Young Hearts Fail, the follow-up to their successful debut record, Red Wolf Glass.

Originally formed by vocalist/bassist Jahmeel Russell in 2000, Projektor consists of Darren Achorn on drums, Jeremy Gillespie on guitar/keyboards, and Sean Stevens on guitar/moog. Since their inception the band has consistently been recognized as one of Western Canada's most exciting new bands. Projektor was selected as one of the top 5 “Up and Coming Canadian” new artists by What! Magazine and chosen as finalists in CBC radio’s “Big Break” contest.

Having toured Canada several times, including dates with Eric's Trip, Moneen, Radiogram, and The Waking Eyes, Projektor is a regular fixture at such noted events as Canadian Music Week, Western Canadian Music Week, New Music West and The Halifax Pop Explosion.

After more than a year in development, the band has completed their new album Young Hearts Fail with the assistance of Juno-winner and Grammy nominated producer, Brandon Friesen. The music represents a movement away from the epic atmospheric sound of Red Wolf Glass to a more immediate and driving rock focus.
