Lead singer/guitarists Tyler and Myles met at a party and bonded over their mutual love of engineering and Wreck Beach jams. Clark plays bass with a penchant for kooky grooves, while percussionist Sebastian hails from Colombia bringing a Latin precision. Gnarfunkel’s live shows are carefully curated journeys that typically begin with a violin-bowed 12 string guitar, include dueling guitar solos played behind their heads as well as dancey tunes, pensive ballads and crowd sing-alongs.
Gnarfunkel exploded onto the Vancouver scene with a sold out show at The Railway Club. While the band puts a large emphasis on its live act, they already recorded two singles under the guidance of Juno-nominated producer Tom Dobrzanski. Gnarfunkel released these two singles in summer 2019 ~ “Painter’s Block” and “Take Me to the Ocean” ~ songs about love, the ocean, and loving the ocean.
