Very really so is a creative collective. We love to make art in any form. Evan has been writing the songs for this project for about 4 years. Song frameworks were written on a yearlong trip through iceland and asia. Upon returning to Canada, Evan met up with Paul, a jam buddy since 2003. They played shows last summer as a duo, mostly in small cafes. Wanting to fill out the sound, Evan and Paul scouted for players who were on a similar wavelength. Mike and Andrew joined up in March 2009. The name comes from grade 12 english class -- a teacher instructed students never to use the words 'very', 'really' and 'so' when writing. Evan thought it was an odd ultimatum since these words are commonly used in speech. Very, really and so are amplifiers. But in attempting to amplify a feeling...they expose the weakness - no, the humanity - of the speaker. Strong parallels to music: exaggerating emotion while becoming vulnerable to scrutiny. The aim of the group is to produce sound that cannot be accounted for by individual talent. To gain inspiration from each other and to inspire audiences. Inspiration to be creative -- to channel emotion positively.

They are Evan Freeman - vocals, rhythm guitar, loops /// Paul Gettis - lead guitar, vocals /// Mike Caswell - bass, vocals /// Andrew Stewart - drums
