Stefen has been creating his own unique music for over a decade, never giving a *@#! about what other people want him to sound like. He never took music for granted, he never sold out, he never got big, but he never went home. Originally from a farm in rural BC, in Western Canada, he bought a guitar when he was 17 and learned by playing blues and rock music in small town dive bars. Eventually he bought a laptop and taught himself to produce basic beats. 

He channeled his gritty, rough and wild rural upbringing into creating music, often experimental soundscapes, sometimes political, sometimes happy, sometimes angry. After spending a few years drifting in and out of different jobs and schools, he ventured to the frozen north of BC to be a pipefitter, and in that isolation he started his project nrthsound. Now he draws on his wide experiences in life to give his music perspective, based on a keeping a humble and thoughtful approach


Tommy B has always had passion for all music. He started his rap career at 16, freestyling and battling in Calgary, Alberta, and eventually running his own hip hop night in the 403. After dealing with some life shattering experiences, Fibz left town and moved out west to Vancouver. He continued to pursue music, living with two audio engineer rappers. They created Blankspace and made noise around Vancouver, releases an LP, rocking shows, contests and battles.

After Blankspace eventually seperated, Fibz kept his skills sharp with battlerap, including features in the King of the Dot and Smoked Out battle leagues. Freestyling is his true joy, and it was freestyling that connected him with Stefen - while both working for a painting company, they freestyled and beatboxed into the sky on a hot summer day, on the rooftop of a building they were supposed to be painting. Now, whether its at a party or on a train, or for your grandma, Fibz can kick a cypher no doubt. 


Stefen reached out to long time collaborator and homie Fibz in 2020 to start a new hip hop project, and this is just the beginning

Besides music, Fibz and Stefen both rock the basketball court, and Fibz lights up NHL Live on Playstation, and runs high end house painting jobs

Stefen runs a business with his partner Freda, FULL CIRCLE FURNITURE, fixing and selling vintage furniture, as well as building custom movie sets for microbuget film production company MILLSPICTURE STUDIOS
