Saving Abel has emerged in recent years as one of the most successful rock bands in the United States with Canada not far behind. The band is widely known via multi-format hits on the radio, and has taken the stage at hundreds of venues across North America. Like many of their rock brethren, a true picture of who they really are individually and collectively is just beginning to take shape as critical mass builds. Their second album, Miss America (2010) is a testament of just that bringing a more in-depth southern rock sound with edgy singles like “Stupid Girl (Only in Hollywood)” and “Sex is Good” climbing the charts. Jared Weeks and Jason Null formed the band in their small hometown of Corinth, Mississippi in 2004. They met when Weeks, who was in a band, was playing guitar at his best friend’s house, when Null, who was in a rival local group, walked in to rehearse with his band. Within days of that meeting, Null and Weeks were writing and honing the intimate writing style that now defines Saving Abel. Gradually the band came together in the final electric line-up of guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor, and drummer Blake Dixon. After shopping their indie EP for almost a year, a copy found its way to the Virgin A&R department and eventually the Chairman & CEO Jason Flom who sent Kim Stephens, an A&R vet (Collective Soul, Matchbox 20, Edwin McCain) to see the band in Jackson, Tennessee and SAVING ABEL was signed the very next day. In 2008, they released their self-titled, major label debut album featuring the singles “Addicted, “18 Days” and “Drowning”. In 2009 the album was certified gold.

Their first LP, Sundown, speaks for itself with its provocative lyrics and creative melodies. From hard driving tracks like “Little Red Devil” and “Bleed The Freak”, to the hard rock ballad and title track “Sundown”, Angel Down displays diversity in their music and song writing, taking from personal experiences and creating tales of fantasy and imagination; with that in mind 2011 promises to be their break out year!

Pardon My Striptease (PMS) has been rocking stages all over the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland for almost two years now. Their hard hitting original rock songs have received endless requests since hitting the air in their hometown of Chilliwack. In 2010 they recorded their self titled EP, produced by John Maclean and engineered by Sheldon Zaharko that helped land them in the top 20 of 99.3 The Fox’s Vancouver SEEDS contest in the summer of 2010 and this is just the beginning for this great band!
