Live On Arrival went on to have 4 Top 10 singles and Matt toured Canada with the like of Finger 11, Faber Drive, Buckcherry and many others. Matt parted ways with Live On Arrival afyer a year and a half do to personal differences and a few years later made the move to Vancouver. Shortly after moving to Vancouver in 2010 Matt hooked up with his good friend Tommy Mac from The Beat Lab studios, where he recorded and produced Matt's single called I Need You, (Engineered by Dean Maher) which a video was shot for and released in 2012. Matt has spent the last year recording, and currently has finished 8 songs in the studio, as well as a brand new single called Lady Luck which was co written with Jimmy Thow of the band Sons Of Daughters and recorded and mixed by Alex Aligansakis 'condor' from the legendary Nimbus family.

Jesus Cancino is a musician and live-looper. Going by the stage/project name of Canzino and residing in Vancouver. He presents his spliced genre of Electronic-Rock and Singer Songwriter melodies. See him balance technology while playing the guitar and vocal melodies in a live looped fashion.
Zeus has been playing music for more than half of his life. His father, after noting the uncontrollable energy he had when it came to playing instruments, put him in classical guitar lessons at the age of 12. His songs are packed with heavy guitar, unpredictably enchanting melodies, illustrative vocals, and are all-around full of energy and emotion.
If you are interested in exploring and pushing the boundaries of genre, sound, and performance, Canzino is definitely someone to check out. He has a refreshing approach to music that is forward thinking and open to possibilities.
