Artist Profile


Ottawa, Ontario
Est. 2012: Growing up in a small town, there isn't much to do except “start a punk rock band with your best friends”. That’s exactly what Ottawa’s 5-piece Rydell has done. This high energy pop-punk band has extremely captivating vocals reminiscent of bands like ("Fall Out Boy", and "Taking Back Sunday"). They have perfectly blended a hard-hitting drum and rhythm section with catchy melodic guitars that will leave a lasting impression long after the record has stopped spinning Although they haven’t been a band for an extended period of time, they have accomplished a lot in the year they've been together. They released their rst EP "Rydell EP" on October 26th 2012 along with a music video for their song “Coastal”. They recently wrapped up the recording of a second EP with Jason Maas (Defeater, Bridge 9 Records) due out in 2013. This hard-working band has been playing shows all around the Ontario region and just returned from an east coast Canadian Tour, gaining a loyal fan base, and respect from fellow musicians. They are ready to prove they have what it takes. - Bio from
