Rob Moir:
Toronto’s Rob Moir looks back at two consecutive years of life on the road with the release of his new album ‚Adventure Handbook‘ (Underground Operations/eOne – Canada, Make My Day Records – EU, released August 2015). In the vein of timeless artists (and muses) like Bruce Springsteen, The Replacements and Jeff Tweedy, Rob’s songs are honest and exceedingly entertaining to see live. Rob continues to routinely finesse clever turns of phrase in his lyrics.
Rob released his first solo EP in 2010 called ‚This Is The Lie‘, then came the critically acclaimed LP ‚Places To Die‘ in 2013 which Rolling Stone wrote in their 4/5 star printed album review, „Moir isn’t conservative; there’s something urgent in his songs, that are never too sure of themselves, and whose longing hasn’t found a home yet. Moir sings his romantic sighing songs with punk rock folk in his heart and in addition proves a great sense for quiet singer/songwriter moment”.

Chris Magerl:
After playing in bands like sick of silence and once tasted life and touring with them through europe and canada for a few years Chris Magerl decided to start a solo project and to release a debut record in 2008. Shortly after the split up of Sick Of Silence Chris Magerl was already on tour again with his new band, Once Tasted Life. They played countries all over Europe and in 2003 performed at the biggest music festival in Europe, the Sziget festival in Budapest, Hungary. This new band not only meant new shows but also the possibility to go new ways musically far up from the genre of hardcore.
At his solo shows Chris Magerl plays new solo material as well as unique acoustic versions of some of the songs he wrote with Once Tasted Life. His music can be described as a bridge between very slow and melancholic tunes and energetic, rocking songs that lay the foundation for very poetic and picturesque lyrics that tell stories about people’s everyday lives.
