FANNY STARCHILD – After running away from home in rural Quebec, Fanny lived as a gypsy around places like San Francisco, L.A., Tucson, and San Diego, teaching herself guitar, bass and flute, and developing her formidable vocal skills. Eventually settling in Vancouver, she played with the La-La’s, the Animal Band, and then her own group, the Earth Lovers.
VEGARI CENDAR – Originally from St. Lucia, Vegari came to Canada at age 18, finished high school in Toronto, then moved to Vancouver where he honed his skills on guitar, bass, keyboards and percussion, becoming a seasoned performer competent in many styles. A seasoned traveller, he has toured extensively throughout Canada and the U.S. as bassist for Juno award-winner Alpha Diallo.
