Manic Drive

Canadian pop/rock band Manic Drive was first formed back in 2004 by brothers Michael Cavallo and Shawn Cavallo. The Cavallos- who began singing at the early ages of eight and nine- always knew music was in their future. “We loved music so much when we were little kids that we started writing, performing and even recording at the age of eight and nine,” says Shawn Cavallo. “While my brother and I were growing up, our relationship with God and our music kind of grew together. So, we’ve always used music to communicate God’s love to people.”

After receiving interest from a record label, they released Reason for Motion in May 2005, which included the songs, “Luckiest,” “Nebulous,” and “Memories.” Over the last several years, the band has released a variety of albums including, Reset and Rewind (2007), Blue (2009), Epic (2009), and VIP (2014). These albums brought a slew of songs to audiences including, “Halo,” “Good Times,” “Walls,” and “VIP (feat. Manwell Reyes).”

Band members now include Michael and Shawn Cavallo and Anthony Moreino. The band aims to encourage listeners to challenge themselves in all aspects of their lives. “The main focus for Manic Drive from an artistic perspective is to challenge ourselves creatively pushing beyond our previous limitations, trying new ideas and ultimately landing on something that will be fun to experience live as well as on an iPod.” Shawn says, “We hope every Manic Drive release will be refreshing to our fans as we continue to grow artistically as a band, and we definitely hope our lyrics resonate with people, challenging them to take a stand and impact the world around them.”

The Color

Originating from Manitoba, Canada, Jordan Janzen and James Shiels began The Color after a season in life when they thought they were letting go of their music dreams.  Following some spiritually transformative years, Jordan and James both entered into full-time ministry in 2009, with the intention of fully embracing where God had them, while still maintaining their friendship.

It was here that The Color came to life. God brought things full circle. What Jordan and James both thought was a calling away from music turned out to be a time of preparation for a ministry in music. “It’s amazing how half a decade of learning to serve and love people will change you,” Jordan points out.

The guys decided to make a record with the songs they had written and, with a desire to begin spreading the music and cover their costs, they put a band together and hit the road.  Enter Larry Abrams on lead guitar and Tyson Unrau on the drums.

“God has been so faithful in bringing the right people to be a part of the team, at the right time.” explains James. “Larry began right from the start of our touring and when Tyson joined us, a little later, it felt like God was putting the final pieces together.”

It doesn’t take long to recognize that The Color brings an energy and authenticity, both with their music and personalities, that quickly draws people in.

“The thought behind the name ‘The Color’ comes from the idea that color brings life to the world around us.” Larry shares. “That is what we want to do with our lives and music. We want to bring life and a message of hope that we know can only be found in Jesus Christ.”

The Color has been awarded multiple Canadian GMA awards and has spent the last few years touring their home country, full-time, from Coast to Coast. They have shared the stage with many great artists such as For King & Country, Tenth Avenue North, Jamie Grace, Kutless and they most recently toured across Canada with Grammy-nominated Building 429.
