The Skinny: Nanaimo, BC’s Mr. Goshness isn’t afraid to go in several directions, taking influence from many different genres they maintain a sound all their own. Filled with intelligent musicianship, pristine vocal harmonies from Kaliandra Capri and Mark Tardif, plus unique arrangements from Aidaen Carson’s keyboard wizardry along with the tight grooves of Zack Friend and Myles Dunne, Mr. Goshness continues to evolve to give fans an entertaining stage show.

Their debut album, A Guide To All Things Twisted, is a powerful and fearless twelve track release full of catchy vocals, heavy guitars and creative arrangements. As producer Jim Blair describes “a deranged cocktail of pop, progressive metal, and Kurt Weil show tunes.” The album was independently released November 4th and is now available on all major online retailers.

Prizing: ONE (1) lucky fan will take home a Mr. Goshness merch package which includes an american apparel hoodie, a signed copy of their album A Guide To All Things Twisted, their EP Death At The Show, and a fridge magnet!
