Canadian rock band Art of Dying is out on the road promoting their latest release, Nevermore, and their fans are loving it! They recently played over at Studio 7, headlining the night after Seattle band, The People Now, Southern California band Letters From The Fire, and Minesota’s,Children 18:3 warmed up the crowd.
Art of Dying’s single “All Or Nothing” is a good descriptor of the band’s latest modus operandi: both self-production/independent release of Nevermore and taking on a greater responsibility in order to get their music seen and heard. Guitarist Tavis Stanley has taken on the additional role of tour manager, the band sells their own merch after shows, and they all act as production staff & stage crew. Art of Dying continues to rock hard on stage and stays after their set to meet as many fans as they can. With lead vocalist Jonny Hetherington‘s high energy performance, drummer Cody Watkins‘s deep cut beats, bassist Cale Gontier‘s smooth & gritty tones, and guitarist Tavis Stanley‘s killer solos, the band is tighter than ever and it shows on stage and off. Their current tour wraps up in the Mid-West at the end of October.

Word to the wise. Follow our pal Andrew Joslyn and the Passenger String Quartet's Instagram page @andrewjoslynmusic.
He's giving sneak previews of his symphonic work on network TV commercials and pop songs. Every student of violin and cello should be following his page. But so should you. You have heard Andrew and his writing on Grammy winning hits by Macklemore and Kesha.
...and his work with folks like Ethan Anderson to save the music industry locally and globally with the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs is something to watch.
Or don't follow him and life will be a little less colorful and inspiring, but sometimes you don't notice how good life can be without good art and good friends.
In that respect Art is dangerous because you will need more. Andrew has plenty in the vault... ... See MoreSee Less
