No Island bring their ‘new classic rock’ to Rockwater

Vancouver-based rock band No Island is coming to Golden on Monday August 27.

Vancouver-based rock band No Island is hitting the road, bringing their classic rock for the 21st century to the people of Western Canada.

They will be swinging through Golden on Monday August 27 to play a show at the Rockwater Grill and Bar.

Made up of five hard-working, professionally-trained musicians, No Island draws from influences including Supertramp, Queen, Rush and Steely Dan. They have taken their love of innovative classic rock and channeled it in a new direction.

With well-crafted original songs and a unique sound complimented by keyboards and saxophone, No Island’s approach to rock is catchy, powerful, and sophisticated all at once.

“Our music is a blend of what we love to listen to now and what our parents loved to listen to long before were were born. We call it indie with a classic rock twist,” said keyboardist/vocalist Andy Rice.

Rice, along with the other male members of the band, Keith Sinclair on lead vocals and guitar, James Wilfred Martin on saxophone, and Mike Ferguson on drums, are all recent graduates from Capilano University’s Jazz Studies Degree program.

“Sara (Lauridsen), our bass player, is a personal trainer and fitness instructor by day, but a total rockstar by night,” said Rice.

The group found each other in 2009, starting with Martin and Sinclair, and soon expanded. Raised on rock, and trained in jazz, each member of No Island shares a similar musical background if which they find their common ground.

They released their debut album, “Sing of the Times,” in the spring of 2011. Go to to hear their music.
