Biography

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (2009 - Present)

“The Farplane”. The band. The music. A collaborative effort of top Canadian rock talent. The EP features the primary songwriting talents of newcomers Kat Colbourn on Vocals, Keyboard/Piano, and Chris G. on Guitars. The self-titled EP was engineered by Mike Turner of Crash Karma and Our Lady Peace, mixed by Mark Makoway (Moist & Evan’s Blue), and mastered by Jo‹o Carvalho (Matthew Good, Evan’s Blue, Marianas Trench et. Al.). Although a freshman effort from the band, their debut record reads like the pages of a mid- career explosion.

Born from the inspiration of the production environment fostered by Mari Dew (Sights and Sounds) through Mike Turner during the 2009 sessions recorded at Toronto’s illustrious and modernized The Pocket Studios (responsible for unleashing such talent as Evan’s Blue and Rains), the band found it’s studio roots driven by professional contractual rhythmic performances from Joe Pitter on bass (Evan’s Blue & Rains), and Jason Pierce (The Neverending White Lights & Shiloh) on drums. As hired guns, they had no rivals for the sessions, and given their hard rock roots and proven track record for belting phenomenal performances, the duo formed the solid backbone found on the debut EP.

One pass through the album yields the same result: no one can argue that as musicians, the members of “The Farplane” are definite virtuosos in a time when being accomplished artists seemingly means so little. They are inquisitive and never fully satisfied with their own work. The songwriting is mature and complex despite their youth. They seek to grow and improve every day, regardless of the obstacles or costs involved.
