SOL 3, former heavyweights of Edmonton's independent music scene have relocated to Vancouver and are poised to conquer Vancouver and beyond with their brand of well crafted, hook driven, guitar rock. Influenced by the great bands from every era in Rock n' Roll history including the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Pixies, and U2, SOL 3 have evolved to create their own distinct and unique sound that pays tribute to all of the great Rockers of the past while maintaining a fresh and relevant sound for the modern age. SOL 3 was first formed by song writers Blair Bellerose (guitars) and Lou Foley (vocals) in 1997. The two of them have in fact been writing together since 1991 and have developed an intuitive creative bond not heard since the early days of Jagger/Richards and Page/Plant. In 2004, SOL 3 recruited heavy hitter and long-time Vancouver musician Rick 'Grizzly' Adams to play drums adding a new dimension of power to the band. Then in 2005, SOL 3 added ex Sarah McLachlan bassist and fellow Edmontonian Jeff 'uberbelly' Sawatzky on bass guitar. SOL 3's past accomplishments are many and include award nominations, radio exposure, and televised live performances. They have been a featured artist on commercial radio stations ranging from 100.3 The Bear in Edmonton to BBC Radio in Birmingham, England. Recently SOL 3 won a worldwide competition called Battle of The Bats on the UK's hottest internet radio station, Monochrome Museum. They also recently advanced to the Vancouver finals of the Emergenza Music Festival. SOL 3's CD, 'ULTRAFADE', is now available for download or direct purchase from CD Baby For more information contact Blair Bellerose at sol3@shaw. Ca.
