Amasic is a rock band from Montreal, made up of four young, passionate musicians: Janick (Vocals, rhythm guitar), Jessy (Lead guitar), Matt (Bass, back vocals) and Mehdi (Drums).
At first, Amasic was a ''one-man band’’. Janick would write and play all instruments by himself. He discovered ''YouTube'' at the age of twelve and then started uploading covers of his favorite songs without knowing that a few years later he would have more than 17 million views on the website. This attracted the attention of bands like Simple Plan (Amasic also co-wrote a song with Chuck Comeau & Pierre Bouvier), Boys Like Girls, Sum 41 and more. The problem with being a one-man band was performing live. Janick felt it was time to form a working band.
With months of searching, he got back in touch with his old friend Jessy who had a band named Karma with his drummer, Mehdi. They were looking for a singer. The band already had four years of experience and played a lot of shows. The only missing piece was a bass player. That's when Janick saw Matt, a young bass player from Montreal, circulating on YouTube. Matt’s age and talent blew him away. The band was now complete!
The band first started in a rehearsal space in Laval and as soon as they got together in the same room, a song came out! They were getting along really well. They kept on practicing and writing new songs to finally have enough material to start playing shows and gain stage experience. They've played venues such as ''Le Club Soda'', ''Le National'', “Opera House” and “Corona Theater”. They’ve opened for bands/artists such as Simple Plan & Tyler Ward.
Their songs ''All For Myself'' (+110k on YouTube) and ''Another Night'' (+60k on YouTube) have both played on MusiquePlus and on the radio, NRJ 94.3 and 99.9 The Buzz without the help of a record label/manager.
Amasic is currently working on a new EP with producer Luc Tellier (Simple Plan, The New Cities, Marie-Mai, Blé) will be out March 18, 2014. There are going to be seven new songs on it, including one that was co-written with Simple Plan. They hope to be heard by the good people who will help them get to the next step. Amasic is more than ready to hit the stage!
