THE "URKEL" TO EVERYONE'S "BILL MURRAY":
The story so far of Ottawa nerd rockers, Double Experience.
By taking influence from WEEZER, MUSE, and COHEED AND CAMBRIA, Double Experience bounce between sounds in a quest to compose music as diverse as an arcade gallery. The genre-pinballing is unified with their quirky lyrical subject matter that ranges from artificial intelligence, tabletop gaming, comic books, and more. In doing so, Double Experience have bonded with a passionate global fan-base with their undeniable live prowess, all while maintaining a strong DIY-ethic that saw them perform nearly 1000 concerts across 18 countries, opening for all manner of acts, including DANKO JONES, JJ WILDE, and MC LARS.
In 2020, Double Experience released Alignments, a trilogy of EP's containing songs that matched all nine alignments from the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS tabletop franchise. The album received critical acclaim and earned the band two Capital Music Award nominations for "Album of the Year" and "Band of the Year". Alignments was recorded at Warrior Sound Studios in North Carolina and was co-produced by both band members along with Al Jacob.
By day, mild-mannered band members Ian Nichols (vocals, bass) and Brock Tinsley (guitar) deliver band-oriented workshops and panels at conferences, conventions and festivals (IndieWeek, MAGFest, Ottawa ComicCon), teaching up-and-coming creatives how to take control of their own destiny in a similar way as the duo’s musical alter-ego. In 2014, they co-wrote and recorded music with Jayson Dezuzio (IMAGINE DRAGONS) and in 2016, they landed on the radar of video game developer Bungie via their DESTINY-inspired anthem "The Glimmer Shot". Double Experience music has been featured everywhere from terrestrial radio to theme music for streamers and podcasts.
