In December of 2011, Mike Dojcsak contacted Evan Bowers over a Kijiji ad that Bowers had posted, seeking new musicians to collaborate with. After practicing acoustically, the two decided to enlist Erik Thorkildsen to play drums for Hamilton, Ontario’s newest Alternative Rock band — Still Life. The three wrote and practiced tirelessly, and in May of 2012, they travelled to Cobourg, Ontario to work with Adam Newcomb of Newcomb Studios who would record, mix, and master their first EP.
With an official launch in September of 2012, the group’s first EP, “Page One” gained much notoriety around the Southern Ontario music scene for it’s wide range of dynamics and mix of Hard and Soft Alternative Rock. This interesting sound, coupled with a hard-working attitude, had them playing with other Southern Ontario bands such as Lifestory:Monologue, Lambs Become Lions, and many more. Widely compared to the likes of Radiohead, Thrice and Incubus with “that Hamilton Rock sound,” Still Life gained themselves two nominations at the Hamilton Music Awards.
In early 2013, Still Life added Graham King into the mix as their new bass player. With King acting as a fresh mind in the writing process, the group continued to collaborate with much forward momentum and in April of 2013, Still Life went back to Newcomb Studios to begin work on their new full-length album, due out in Fall of 2013.
