ART OF DYING

There is an old saying which claims that great art is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. The truth though is that exceptional creativity is nurtured by a complexly brewed combination of unswerving dedication and God-given talent. It's a fact no better illustrated than by the history of Vancouver's hard-rockers ART OF DYING and their talismanic frontman Jonny Hetherington. From hours busking on the corners of frozen streets, to catching the ear of members of DISTURBED, to gatecrashing some of North America's biggest venues, to writing and recording records of truly epic proportions, the trajectory of the quartet's career has astonished both fans and industry insiders alike.

"In my early days as a musician I just wanted to play and hone my chops," explains Hetherington, "and playing on the street seemed like the best way to do that. It teaches you a lot about songwriting and about yourself, because you're having to learn and make mistakes in front of people. I'll never forget the folks who came and took notice of what I was doing back then, lots of them are ART OF DYING fans now and I think that's testament to what we've been able to create as a band."

And what ART OF DYING has been able to create is muscular, vivacious hard-rock bursting with lung-shattering choruses and a sincerity that is impossible to fake. Equally at home with a lead-fingered riff or a deft slow-burner, there is an ease of breadth in AOD's repertoire that would send most of their peers salad-green with envy.

Gradually, Hetherington's ambitions grew beyond his local sidewalk and he began to seek out like-minded collaborators that he could expand his already impressive template with. Drummer Jeff Brown was swiftly recruited and he and Hetherington set about formulating the powerful nucleus of what ART OF DYING would soon become. It was recordings of those initial sessions that would eventually find their way into the hands on DISTURBED's Dan Donegan - a guitarist with both a fine personal pedigree and a keen ear for new talent.
