Biography

Columbia's founding members have spent the past few years creating the New Universal Rock. Big Rock...the way it should be, with catchy licks and meaningful lyrics. Columbia combines talent and emotion. When vocalist Kevin Schallie and guitarist Richard Jacquard first began writing music together, they promised each other that they would be the BEST, and do anything it takes to make music that transcends all boundaries. Kevin and Richard formed Columbia in the wake of their previous band Straitpipe. This new project saw the additions of Graeme Hahn on bass, Ben Frith on drums, and was a songwriting turning point for the band. With the full line up complete, the new songs had more direction, melody, and impact. This led to bigger, better shows and more opportunity. Eventually the boys sat down and wrote the songs that would become the Join Our Ride album. The album was recorded at the Hive by Jesse Karr. Following the release of Join Our Ride, Columbia hit the road for several tours in the US and Canada, playing venues such as The Showbox in Seattle, The Cat Club on LA's Sunset Strip, as well as headlining shows at Richards on Richards, The Roxy, and The Venue in their hometown of Vancouver to name a few. Now, fresh from recording two new singles with Tommy Mac (Hedley) and Dean Maher (Engineer - Rise Against, etc), they are ready to take their music to the next level. Like their favorite bands of the past, Columbia wants to be the BEST and is ready to prove it. Join Our Ride.
