Drew Wright has been wowing the nation and made his way to the top 3 on last season’s Canadian Idol.  He will be appearing, live, in his hometown of Collingwood with his new band, Fall and Divide, on Wednesday, April 29th and Thursday, April 30th, 2009 in the beautiful, historic Gayety Theatre on Hurontario Street. 

To form the new band, Drew contacted Bret Carrigan, the heavy hitting rock drummer that he has played with on many occasions previous. Bret, being a very sought after player, knew just the right guys to finish the line up: Paul Fonseca, his partner-in-rhythm on bass and Jean Arcand on lead guitar were added to complete Fall and Divide. Drew's array of musical influences —ranging as wide as Nat King Cole to System of a down— have provided him with a knack for sophisticated, sweeping melodies that sit uniquely atop his progressive guitar playing.

Jean, who brings a bluesy rock feel to the group, utilizes his technical ability and musical maturity to complement Drew's soaring vocals. Paul and Bret, who had already had years of playing together under their belts, add the professionalism and tight groove that reins in the band's sound. The band's democratic approach to songwriting has already churned out a number of single-worthy tracks that don't settle for radio-rock clichés; they have their inspirations firmly rooted in the genre's past, but their sights set on the future.

Fall and Divide have already attracted the attention of no less than Donald K. Donald, the founder of Aquarius Records and the man who’s ushered in everyone from Sum 41 to Danko Jones. With an EP and tour planned for the spring and a debut LP set for a winter release, the quartet is set to make 2009 the year fans of hard rock everywhere fell for Fall and Divide.
