Why, The Canadian Rock Band causing a BUZZ #water

Why – was started in 1995 in Winnipeg Monitoba by Brian Cook (Vocalist) Their first Album was The Naked Soul – followed in 2002 with The Rise and Fall of the Question Mark.

Since then, over the years the band have supported and raised money for many causes through many means, including proceeds of their own albums RED and Lazarus Effect –  helping causes such as OxfamUnicefMake Poverty History  and Watercan – which is a charity helping people in poverty to gain access to clean water.  Similar to the @water cause that many of us are involved in.

Not just fantastic music, but musicians with excellent motives too! “Quote Rosalind Anne Smith
