The following November she opened for ”Q” from the Grammy winning recording artists “112″.

7th Reign – Self Titled CD (2007)

June 20, 2009

Artist: 7th Reign
Home: Chatham Kent /Sarnia
CD Release: Self Titled
Year: 2007
Style: Power metal.
Local connection. Mario & Dave.

Brian Soulard: Vocals
Mario Panayiotis: Guitars
Dave Davidson: Bass
Niall Mellors: Drums

Tracks
1 Till the End 2 Defied 3 Believe 4 Dark of the Sun 5 Asylum 6 By Way of Deception 7 Lady Babylon 8 Executioner

   The band 7 th REIGN was formed in January 2005 by Marios Panayiotis and Brian Soulard. (ex- EIDOLON vocalist) They started off with one goal, to form the kind of band that they would want to hear and see live. They were not worried about current trends or past influences but instead concentrated on creating good music that would cross many themes and styles but was built on the best form of music……METAL!!
   Marios and Brian were introduced in April 2004 by MEGADETH/EIDOLON guitarist Glen Drover. Glen knew that the two were exactly what the other was searching for. It took another eight months for them to figure it out!! Once they decided that they were destined to play together they started to form the early foundation of 7 th REIGN. After writing and recording for six months they realized it was time to finish the forming of 7 th REIGN. By September of 2005 they had found the pieces of the puzzle that they needed. Drummer Niall Mellors and bass player Dave Davidson (Fuz z)  (Another Chatham boy Lyra/Tangled Puppet/Manpower/) completed the band.
  Over the next four months they rehearsed new songs and refined existing ones. In January of 2006, they played their debut gig at the Opera House in Toronto to a packed house in support of Finnish Metal band SONATA ARCTICA. The overwhelming response from the Metal crowd confirmed that the band was on the right track. Although 7 th REIGN was excited to start playing live they knew that it was also time to start focusing all of their attention on recording their debut album. During this process Fuz z informed the band that he was on the move and needed to leave the band. Although they were saddened at the news of his departure they were excited to welcome new band member Adrian Robichaud (EIDOLON). Brian and Adrian had played together on four albums and the band knew that the addition of Adrian would bring them to a whole new level of technical skill and professionalism.
   7 th REIGN is a POWER METAL band that has a great amount of technical ability and a theatrical sound. Their self-titled debut album is filled with fast double bass, shredding guitar solos, soaring vocal lines and passionate lyrics.

June 19, 2009

Artist: Jesse Verleye
Home: Chatham
Year: 2009
Previous Bands: The Janet Theory, Dead Girls Union, Foster Child, C.O.I.,

In 2009, Jesse formed a top 40 cover band called Face For Radio. Along side his strong local rock roots as a singer & bassist, he has been dabbling with Country music and a love for other genres. This year he recorded a few home demos that were very much country songs.  He also was involved in writing and performing on many songs for all the Demo Kid Home Demo Volume CD’s released from 2007-2011.

In 2011, Jesse began to focus on writing again with a new found passion for music brought on by the likes of “The Band of Horses” & the indie acoustic/ revived modern folk scene. This led to forming a tribute band to them (B.O.H.) which performed many shows through 2011. The group is called ‘Infinite Arms‘.

You can view a few of his home demos & collabs below.
