North of Hollywood Chad Campbell - Lead Vocals, Guitar Matt Horvath - Lead Guitar, Vocals Tom Oliver - Bass, Vocals Donn Dixon - Drums, Vocals The Bio Chad Campbell - Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar Chad Campbell was born in Calgary, Alberta. His father was a popular rock DJ so music was a part of his life from day one. At the age of 12 Chad got his first guitar and by the end of high school he had written an armful of original music. After completing high school Chad moved to Los Angeles to pursue a life in music. While playing solo shows in and around the LA area Chad attended the Musicians Institute and studied vocals and recording for four years. After another year of working in the A&R department of Capitol Records as an intern Chad moved home to Toronto. Matt Horvath - Lead Guitar, Vocals Matt Horvath's love of music was established very early in his life. He came by it honestly, as his father was also a musician who grew up in the Toronto music scene. Being exposed to music at an early age gave Matt an appreciation for all genres of music. This diversity has influenced Horvath's song writing, and made him a more versatile guitar player. Once Chad returned to Toronto, the two childhood friends began to perform as an acoustic duo at venues across southern Ontario. After a couple of months of playing acoustic gigs they decided it was time to plug in and North of Hollywood was born. Tom Oliver - Bass, Vocals Tom has been playing bass guitar for most of his life. Growing up in Victoria BC Tom cut his teeth in the West Coast music scene. He toured and played with acts such as Big Sugar, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Vaughan, Matthew Good Band.............too damn many to list. With influences like John Paul Jones, Geezer Butler, Steve Harris and Noel Redding it is easy to see and hear why Tom is the backbone of NOH. Tom adds a passion for The music that has lifted the entire groups' energy both in the recording studio and in front of a crowd. Donn Dixon - Drums, Vocals Welcome the Donn. Donn's been a professional drummer for the past 15 years, playing everything from Ska, Jazz, Blue Grass, to Rock, Pop, Punk & Classical.
