Artist Profile


London, Ontario

Cyphier is an electronic/industrial project which utilizes the concepts of slam poetry to tell cohesive stories in music. Cyphieris based from London, Ontario, consisting of Louis Cyphier (vocals, electronics), Jason Norwood (synthesizers, percussion, vocals), and Matthew Elliot (live performances), Cyphier formed in 2015 out of a desire to explore varied musical influences.  The experimentalism of early industrial bands like Cabaret Voltaire and Skinny Puppy, combined with a more modern electronic sound, define the unique vision and sound of Cyphier.

Prior to Cyphier, Louis was a well-known industrial DJ in North America.  Norwood, aside from running his label Hope Mansion Recordings, has been recording various forms of electronic and alternative music for 25 years.  The pair originally met around the turn of the century while Louis was a DJ in London.

Cyphier’s first album, Overthought, was recorded as a concept record with a heavy anti-suicide message and released in early fall of 2015.  2016 saw the band release their follow-up, Subversion, while on tour in Eastern Canada.  The second album blends the experimental sound of Overthought while adding a more danceable touch.  Both albums were released through Hope Mansion Recordings.
