In Fall 2018, Audiograph came together as a new formation of the already established Calgary premiere dance band, Audio Graffiti.
New to the Calgary Region of Alberta, Yvonne set out to join a kick ass cover band and it just so happened that Oliver was looking for a new kick ass project. That new project became a mix of tunes from Oliver's dance oriented Audio Graffiti and Yvonne's Winnipeg classic rock band, Highway 59. Out of this, Audiograph was born. Kenny, having been in projects with Oliver for years, fortunately decided he wanted to be in this new kick ass band, too. To round out the sound, Ian leapt off the "bass player wanted" ads and into the band. Yes, rock n' roll dreams do come true!
It won't be a party without you. Come out and let's dance! You will hear tunes from yesterday and today by such favourite artists as U2, Journey, AC/DC, Alanis Morrisette, The Pretenders, DNCE, and many more!
Yvonne wants you to sing along!
Yvonne is our newest Albertan and our powerhouse frontperson. She is the former lead singer of the Winnipeg classic rock cover band, Highway 59 which she fronted for 14 years. She is a firecrackin' live wire whose stamina astonishes and whose vocal range thrills. Her enthusiasm for music making is downright infectious, onstage and off. She loves all genres of music and is a true fan of the classic rock scene. Yvonne's focus, dedication and professionalism are the nutrient mix that inspires the band -- and the audience -- to rock on and on.
Oliver wants you to get up and dance!
Oliver's love for music has always been in the forefront of his life. He started playing piano at the age of eight, drums in school at age 12, then guitar at the age of 19. He spent the first 15 years of his adult life on the road as a sound engineer and musician, but when it was time to settle down, he still continued to play in Calgary on weekends. To date, he still loves playing guitar and hopes nothing will stop him for many years to come.
Kenny wants you to feel the beat!
Kenny, a native of Lagos Nigeria, has been a professional drummer/percussionist since 1997. He has his roots in gospel music and has studied and continues to study a variety of world drumming. Furthermore, he is a talented songwriter and has worked with contemporary choirs in his native country of Nigeria. He has vast experience in many forms of African music such as highlife, calypso, raggae as well western and world music genres.
