Recently have released a full length album 'Against The Grain' , have opened for Lee Aaron, have won band competitions, raised close to $4000 for the Gord Downie Foundation for brain cancer research, was selected as one of the top 25 artists in the CBC Searchlight competition and won 2nd prize in HWY 11 Records' Most Original Song contest. BLACKWOOD SINNERS are a hard rock band based out of Sudbury, Ontario. In late 2014 band members Andre Beaulieu and Mike Lavigne came to a collective decision to start playing music again considering it had been eight years since there last project was active. With the thought of playing music again there was definite excitement brewing. So the next step was to search for some likeminded and equally talented musicians to partake in this project. After searching throughout the Sudbury area for possible band mates Connor Mitchell was the next band member to step in roll for BLACKWOOD SINNERS. Andre responded to Connors Kijji add and set up the first jam. After the first jam it was evident that the chemistry was there and the band was almost complete. The next challenge was to find a vocalist. After many unsuccessful auditions it was not looking very promising for the new project. Then Andrew Boyd agreed to an audition. The audition quickly became more of a jam session playing some favorite covers and having a good time. There was an automatic connection between the musicians and therefore BLACKWOOD SINNERS was complete. After a few jam sessions the band discovered that song writing and creating original music were a high priority for each band member. With a common love for hard rock and rock n roll the decision was made to start creating the music they loved. As the writing sessions began it became very clear that each member were genuinely excited to create some great music and the writing process was surprisingly very quick. Within 2 months there were 4 songs written and BLACKWOOD SINNERS had performed there first show at Cambrian College Battle Of the Bands and won! What a great start for the band and a real motivator to create more music to work towards recording the first BLACKWOOD SINNERS album. The band have been working hard creating and are set to hit the studio summer of 2015 including playing festivals and local fundraising shows. Exciting times for BLACKWOOD SINNERS and the boys are looking forward to the future creating music, playing shows and making new fans. So if there is a BLACKWOOD SINNERS show in your area and your looking for a good time this is the show you need to see .You will not be disappointed!
