The Violet Archers - The End of Part One

The 2005 debut release from The Violet Archers.

After close to two decades as singer and multi-instrumentalist for rock icons The Rheostatics, writer and producer Tim Vesely steps forward and into a new pair of shoes with The Violet Archers. Vesely is joined by singer and pianist, Ida Nilsen (Great Aunt Ida, Buttless Chaps), drummer Steve Pitkin (The Flashing Lights, Elliott Brood), bassist Aaron MacPherson and guitarist Yawd Sylvester (both of Toronto's Wayne Omaha) for the debut album, The End of Part One.

The dynamics of the band's members are as diverse as the sounds they create: Nilsen's heavy-hearted piano chords give way to Vesely's endearing vocals and infectious pop pieces, and Pitkin's lyrical feel vibes nicely with the Wayne Omaha boys' electro-beauty-rock. By Divine Right's Jose Contreras also lends his quick fingers and na na na's for a few tracks.

"...a classic album of understated pop music from one of the best writers around. " - Read the full review at Exclaim.ca
