Biography

When the members of Canadian rock band WHY came together to create what would be known as the “RED” album, a two year project in the making, little did they realize the distance this record would travel . As they did with their previous full length album “LAZARUS EFFECT,” which received air play in major markets across Canada and raised money to support OXFAM, WHY continues to raise awareness for both themselves as well as Make Poverty History. WHY's last full length album "RED", featured the single (and title track) "RED," was well received by various radio stations worldwide. "RED" sat at 1 on the KICK FM Winnipeg TOP 40 for 4 weeks in a row, and was named SONG OF THE YEAR. The follow up single "THE SURFACE" charted, hitting 1 on KICK FM, 5 on THE Q FM in Victoria BC, and airplay from THE GOAT in Alberta, FREQ 107 in Winnipeg, (both singles have been receiving radio support at) DOWN FM in Northern Ireland, and radio in Australia. WHY released “BIG THUNDER, NO RAIN” with great response from radio and is being used by IMPOSSIBLE 2 POSSIBLE (www.impossible2possible.com), an organization started by "RUNNING THE SAHARA" runner Ray Zahab. WHY first took shape in the late 90’s in Winnipeg Manitoba, when Brian Cook (vocalist) gathered to himself talented musicians and together ventured out to see their musical ideas take form. As years passed and other commitments took hold, Brian and the guys continued to write and began to dedicate time to Make Poverty History. WHY felt the need to use their music to raise awareness to the staggering fact that a child dies due to extreme poverty every 3 seconds. 2009 WHY released their single “WE STARTED OUT,” featured on the WATERCAN website: www.watercan.com . ( WaterCan is a Canadian charity dedicated to ending poverty by helping the world’s poorest people gain access to clean water, basic sanitation, hygiene education.) WHY is also donating 40% of the profits from the sale of their latest full length album "RED", (available online at www.cdbaby.com/whytheband2 or on iTUNES) to WATERCAN's work in eastern Africa to build water wells. WHY have started writing their next album and wrote the song "PRISONER OF HOPE" on Dec 10th 2009, not knowing weeks later Haiti would be hit by a deadly earthquake. The song's lyrics seemed strangely appropiate. The song "PRISONER OF HOPE" is available for download only at this time. And the members of WHY are donating 100% of the profits from downloads directly to UNICEF and their ongoing work in Haiti. When you download this song,...you are investing in Haiti's future. Thank you.
