In Bliss (Vancouver, BC) has been getting Vancouverites out of their seats and on to the dance floor since 2012. Founding Members Cameron Hayes (singer, songwriter and guitarist) and Spencer Wilden (drummer) started the band with the intention of creating a groove that they could stand behind. In 2015, multi-instrumentalist, producer and owner of E.M. Studios (formerly Rain City Recorders) Esher Baldwin joined the band, replacing the group’s original bassist. With a new band member and a reinvigorated drive to create, In Bliss recorded a self titled EP featuring five upbeat tracks with crunchy pop vocals, bright punk beats and Flea style bass lines. The EP was an overwhelming success landing the band gigs around western Canada and Vancouver’s live music staples like The Roxy and Studio Records.
With their first EP and a series of outstanding shows behind them, In Bliss released it’s second EP, Log It, on March 5, 2016 at The Roxy nightclub in downtown Vancouver. The threesong digital release was expertly recorded and produced by Esher Baldwin at Esher Media Studios. Its namesake song, “Log It,” kicks the reggae influences up a notch and showcases West Coast imagery in the lyrics. The swingstyle drums in “Mile” are a throwback to the modern era, giving the song a vintage flavour. For the remainder of 2017, In Bliss plans to release their debut Album and continue touring western Canada. The group has an ever evolving live show that promises to impress, so check in soon for tour dates!
