Description

We Are the City is a Kelowna based  rock/progressive/experimental band, who share shades of Radiohead and Pink Floyd. They have just released a new CD called “In a Quiet World”

 We Are The City is a three piece progressive indie rock act from the Okanagan lakeside city of Kelowna, British Columbia. Originally forming under the name "Seraph" in the Spring of 2006, they changed their name to "The City" in January of 2007, and finally settling upon We Are The City in May of 2008. We Are The City features three young composers: Cayne McKenzie on vocals and keys, David Menzel on guitar, and Andy Huculiak on the drums. Cayne's symphonic piano arrangements flow into David's guttural guitars and the grand heartbeat of Andy's drums, as the vocals slink from soft melodies into gruff howls. Their songs paint out a sincere and beautiful interpretation of life; exploring evocative sounds and storytelling.


They draw inspiration from Muse, Coldplay, Mew, and Radiohead. They have already shared the stage with Yukon Blonde (formerly Alpha Baby), Secret & Whisper, Kyle Tubbs, National Frost, Sylvie, Anything August, The Painted Birds, Dan Mangan, Italian Edition, My Broken Hero, Bend Sinister, You Say Party! We Say Die!, Winter Gloves, Mother Mother, and Leeroy Stagger. We Are The City was recently invited to close the Best of BC Stage in Victoria, for BC's 150 Festival, followed on the mainstage by Burton Cummings, Sarah McLachlan, and Feist.

Listening to their instrumentation and orchestral arrangements you will readily discover their potential for greatness is simply palpable. Cayne has been classically trained in piano for eight years and playing for twelve. David and Andy are both self-taught musicians, with Andy playing drums for five years, and David playing guitar for four years.

In person, and during their witty banter in between songs on stage, you will find these three young men endearing, awkwardly funny, and incredibly sweet. They are brothers drawn together to explore their own musical renaissance. Having just finished highschool, their innocence and sincerity will pull fans in to find their own fists clenching at nostalgic summer days with bruised teenaged knuckles. These three young men may be comical, humble, and sweetly adorable, but their music is not to be taken lightly. With their booming stadium-ready sounds and stirring melodies, they are set to continue to steadily gain fans of all ages around the globe.

We Are the City will convince you with their good hearts and inspiring sounds to come and be a part of their city.

Fox opera Are Fox Opera is a band of three. We like to rock... roll, even. Our music is sometimes catchy, sometimes incoherent, sometimes soft, sometimes loud. Cait has stagefright, Noah brings the polyrhythms and Keith only listens to jazz.

This is what some very nice people have said about us:

"Fox Opera kill (each other) live: Noah Rabinovitch (drums) and Caitlin Copeland (guitar/vox) spend most of their stage time trying to mess each other up (as opposed to most bands, who do all they can to keep it together), while bassist Keith Rodger soldiers on, seemingly oblivious to the war of attrition happening around him. As a result, this indie power-trio make compelling music that is even more compelling to watch." - Sled Island 2009 Preview

"They are the aural equivalent of animal fries; a delicious mish-mash of styles all playing off of each other." - Harvey Hinton for Aurgasmicalgary, 13 March 2009 

"... one of the most interesting bands in the local scene..." - Alvy Singer for FFWD Magazine, 10 January 2008 

"...an energetic four-piece with a knack for combining off-kilter art-rock with up-tempo Afro-beat guitar sounds." - Jesse Locke for The Calgary Sun, 28 December 2007 

"... an exciting new set of voices in Calgary music." - Mark Hamilton for Swerve Magazine, 7 December 2007

"Fox Opera's muse leads them from pretty acoustic folk jams to energetic indie rock, all pulled off with intriguing style..." - Mark Hamilton for Sled Island '07 Preview
