Based out of Vancouver BC, Spendo is made up of five like-hearted, experienced multi-instrumentalists. Sharing a love for modern & classic rock, they exude a 1970’s California vibe, drawing inspiration from and paying respect to the music of that timeless era.
In 2022, Spendo ventured into “The Great Unknown”, turning heads with their well-received single “Fighter,” followed recently by their second single “Easy to Lie”, both of which were recorded with legendary Canadian producer Danny Craig (Default, One Bad Son) who also produced their second EP “The Great Unknown” released March 11th 2023.
The band’s powerful live performance has led them to many sold out hometown shows. They’ve also landed on some big stages, rubbing elbows with Canadian Rock Royalty (PRISM, 54-40, and Daniel Wesley). They were also crowned “Best In Vancouver” 2022. These five fine gentlemen have been itching to show the world what they’re capable of, and their long and fruitful journey is only just beginning.
“I believe they have what it takes to get to the next level. They are great people, they have a kick ass show and I believe they’re going places.” -Mike Fraser (AC/DC, AEROSMITH)
“If you are looking for a band that rocks hard – That plays laid back funky grooves as well as heavy blues based grooves – with killer harmonies-, this is the band for you !! The world is in need of a band like Spendo !!!” -Danny Miranda (BLUE OYSTER CULT)
The Vidos (rhymes with “Speedos”) are three gringos from British Columbia, Canada with an affinity for pop hooks, creative drumming, and stacked harmonies — and fuzz on all of ‘em. They started making music together in high school, cracking the Top 40 in Canadian Active Rock with their songs “Car Trouble” and “Perfect Stranger”.
Alongside longtime producer Danny Craig, The Vidos have arrived at a sound playfully described as “sludge pop” and look forward to releasing a collection of brand new material fitting that description in 2023.
Prior to March 2020, the boys had toured the country nine times in the span of 3 and a half years, including a “hellish” 7-month stint living on their tour bus in Toronto in an effort to demolish their comfort zone and perform on a nightly basis. Known for their witty lyrics and onstage banter, The Vidos have gradually cultivated their live show into an immersive, genre-bending, fourth-wall-shattering performance and have become one of Canada’s most promising and unpredictable groups in the process.
Their debut record “Right in the Kisser!” is out everywhere now
