Dali Van Gogh are a guitar-driven hard rock band from Halifax, Nova Scotia. With a sound that has been described as “rugged and vibrant, reminiscent of early years AC/DC and Led Zeppelin” (Stewart Rankin). The band has received worldwide radio play, and have officially released 5 records: Verbal Warning (2010), Mask Identity (2012), Wild Blue City (2012), From Ashes (2017), and Under Her Spell (2019).
Founded in 2009 by guitarist Isaac Kent, the band evolved out of Isaac’s previous project, the pop rock band Eight Days To Saturday. With a passion for guitar, and the business sensibility and drive to create something special, Isaac set out to form a hard rock band in his own image and style.
Magnetic North, originally from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and now based out of Halifax, NS bring you a new type of rock ‘n’ roll. They share voices of an intuitive experience of energetic rock music, personal views of the rock classics and current musical inspiration from modern musicians. Their original self-titled EP echoed influences of new wave, funk, alternative rock and blues! Writing music, while not being defined by a particular genre, is a massive part of the experience which they bring to their audience.
All members of the band bring you a strong musical background, cultivated in their early years through to the present day. At a young age these gentlemen were busy learning about music in their respective school bands and, as they came of age, their knowledge of music was further refined throughout their college years. Gigging individually in various music groups throughout their careers in the Cape Breton and Halifax area only honed their musicality, until they would eventually form the group Magnetic North.
Magnetic North love to share their energy and emotion with audiences across Canada. They are recently promoting their new Acoustic EP, Digital Illusions, containing the title track and the single recently featured on the 2019 CBC Searchlight National Top 100, “Beauty & Love”.
