Canadians is a band comprised of Duccio Simbeni (vocals, guitar), Massimo Fiorio (bass), Michele Nicoli (guitar), Vittorio Pozzato (keyboards, guitar) and Christian Corso (drums). The band was born in Verona, Italy in 2005. Some of the band's members were all involved in other bands before joining Canadians. Bassist Massimo Fiorio played bass for the band Slumber, which released its debut album Never Been A Girl on the label Hoboken (run by Massimo Fiorio himself) in 2003. Singer Duccio Simbeni played guitar and sang for a band called Microluna, keyboardist Vittorio Pozzato plays guitar for Fake P., whose debut album will be released later this year, Michele Nicoli played drums for the band Corsico. Canadians released their self-produced debut EP The North Side Of Summer in 2005 and gained immediately a huge critical acclaim. Blogs and webzines were the first to realize how catchy and interesting Canadians' tunes are and soon after magazines followed with amazing reviews. Although the EP was self-released and never got an official distribution in the shops, the band sold all the copies and had to reprint it. Canadians submitted to the Heineken Jammin' Contest in 2006 and won the contest and was featured as Breaking Band in NME. Candians was the first Italian band ever to get a review in NME's Breaking Band column. The band was also featured in the U.S. TV show “Project My World” and raised interest among the thousands of American indie fans and did the same in the UK when it played the International Pop Overthrow Festival at Cavern Club in Liverpool in May 2007. Their debut album A Sky With No Stars was released by the Varese-based indie label Ghost Records in October 2007. The album showcases the great ability of the band, which plays catchy indie pop anthems.
