Lister Biography Big Melodies, Big Beats, Big Heart
Bob Dylan meets the Beach Boys
Brothers Stuart and Michael
Lister along with drummer Marco Rayes have been navigating the
inner landscapes of peace, faith, love, sex and redemption.
Formed in their hometown of Ottawa, Canada, Listers brand
of pop rock marries vulnerable lyrical introspection, melodic
explosive hooks and groove based back beats.
Listers first full-length CD entitled Half-Built Set, was recorded and released in Ottawa and mixed at Metalworks in Toronto by Ed Krautner (Tea Party, Tonic). The disk includes So Real which received national radio airplay and featured Half As Good which appeared on the WB Television Networks Dawsons Creek and Party of Five television series.
So Real was included on RCD Music & Bhurr Records' IndieBlast compilation, Molson Canadians Indieblast Sampler, and Clearnets A Little Bit of Canada. All compilations were released nationally.
The summer of 2001 hailed Listers permanent move to Los Angeles club-land where they have claimed The Gig as their home away from home, and continue to maintain a busy performance schedule.
