Biography

Vancouver, Canada (2003 – present)

The Vincent Black Shadow is an alternative/garage rock which formed in 2003 in Vancouver, Canada. The band initially formed by Cassandra Ford (vocals), Robbie Kirkham (guitar, vocals), Chris Kirkham (bass), Mary Ancheta (keyboards) and Anthony Ancheta (drums). Nikki Hurst took over from Cassandra in 2010 on vocals.

The Vincent Black Shadow have the moxie to awaken the retro heart and pump it full of new school blood. Their throwback 1940’s cabaret sound has been twisted and contorted forming a modern hybrid. Combining hook laden riffs, gain stained guitar, hypnotic rhythms, classical piano and unpredictable lyrics that take you on a disturbing journey to a world you clamor to revisit.

This Vancouver based quintet is comprised of Cassandra Ford (Vocals), the brothers’ Kirkham. Robbie (Guitar/Vocals), Chris (Bass/Vocals), Anthony (Drums) and Mary Ancheta (Keyboards). In 2000 Rob and Cassandra met while ordering the same obscure martini at a local hot spot this spawned the friendship that then turned into musical collaboration. Cassandra’s talents were called upon in the South Pacific when Universal Philippines invited her down for a record deal. With their discarding of music she and Rob had created she realized they were not interested in her talents, they just wanted to turn her into an Asian pop star. Cassandra quickly booked herself a ticket back to Vancouver where her and Rob reunited. The two started feverishly writing.
