Bombargo Biography - Written By Don Coleman of A & R International
The award winning Canadian Alternative Rock independent recording artist
"Bombargo" released their compelling debut release titled, "Back on Main",
engineered and co-produced by S.J. Kardash (The Deep Dark Woods, The
Sheepdogs), as well as unleashing the music video for the song, "Precious
Time", that has garnered thousands of YouTube views. The community-minded
energy of the group, led Bombargo to create a fund, by donating all online
proceeds from their debut release to the residents of Northern Saskatchewan
in Canada, who are displaced and negatively affected by the annual ravaging
forest fires in the region.
This dedicated group of prolific writers have already recorded two new
singles to be released over the coming weeks (Spring 2016) and have an
upcoming full-length album completed and ready for release in the latter
part of the year. The band says, "We are all about building momentum,
embracing our fan base and relentlessly performing."
Bombargo's musical landscape delivers a punchy, energetic conviction, that
infuses a hint of blues and soul into their alternative rock vibe, creating
a synergy that embodies the unique sum of all of the musical personalities
of the group. Songs that captivate the listener through powerful and
inspiring messages, that explore the universal themes like; self-belief,
unlimited potential and pursuing dreams.
The band built their reputation on the intense, raw energy of their
performances. Bombargo truly connects to their audiences on multiple levels
and have a growing fan base that supports the band at all of their "Sold
Out" shows in regional cities that include; Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina and
Lloydminster, to name a few. Bombargo thrives on the high octane energy that
they share with their fans, at every show!
"Bombargo won the prestigious award, on the 'Top 10 Best Albums of 2016'

repertoire at Canadian Music Week 2016." The group will also be performing
at select music industry conferences across North America in 2016, as well
