Creating positive energy through music and message, The Senticsphere has amassed a loyal following with their brand of emotionally charged rock, and 2010 was no exception.
This last year was a phenomenal year for the band with them recently earning a New Music Award for ‘Best Rock’ at the Ontario New Music Festival 2010 in Barrie, Ontario and an opening slot for Big Sugar and The Trews. They also earned honours from Vancouver’s premier rock radio station, 99.3 The Fox, as Fox’s very first listener-voted independent Band of the Month, and top spots in the Vancouver Fox Seeds competition two years in a row. To conclude 2010, they had two singles ‘Home’ and ‘On The Edge’ selected to be in the latest online, interactive music video game Rhythm Zone.
The release of their 2009 debut album “Day One”, and a successful Canadian National Tour in support of the record, put the band in a prime position to be seen and heard by new audiences across the country. Their highly energetic and crowd rousing live shows scored them a performance at this year’s National Campus and College Radio Conference. A hard work ethic and being relentless have earned the band further credibility in the Canadian independent Rock scene with some commercial radio play of their singles ‘On the Edge’ and ‘Don’t Give Up’.
Past accolades and events include a 2009 album release show sponsored by ROCKSTAR Energy Drink and 99.3 The Fox with partial proceeds being donated to Warchild Canada. The band also won national accolades at the 2008 International Emergenza Festival in Montreal, placing 2nd in Canada. In 2006, their debut EP “Waking the Sun” had the lead single 'More' licensed for the 2008 Australian motorsport DVD 'Gazza Nationals' soundtrack. Numerous online awards, interviews, music reviews and cross-Canada performances coupled with thousands of streams and downloads sold throughout North America and abroad have given rise to one of Vancouver’s brightest up and coming rock acts.
Having recently come out of Warehouse and The Den studios in Vancouver, BC with world-renowned producer Jeff Dawson (State Of Shock, Daniel Powder), the band is currently on tour promoting their 2011 release, “Strength In Numbers”. This release features brand new singles ‘In The End’ and ‘Change’.
With a newfound maturity and song writing to match, The Senticsphere continues to strive to cement their place in the landscape of modern rock. The Senticsphere is Warren Hall (lead vocals), Roy Benetti (guitars), and Sean Welch (percussion). With the current line-up change and departure of bass player and friend Chris ‘Pooh’ Poole, the band welcomes Benson Musaev on bass, and is ready for another epic year.
