THE ‘STRANGE MACHINE’ STORY – Not wanting to create a concept album that nobody would ever take the time to hear in its entirety, Frank Horvat designed TFHB’s latest album like a playlist. The album flows together through the concept of the machines that control us, both external and internal. However, the songs change feel, vocalists and instrumentalists throughout giving it the feel of a handpicked playlist.

Band members include: Ghislain Aucoin (vocals), Kismet Cooper (vocals), Michael Davidson (vibes), Christine Duncan (vocals), Oleksandra Fedyshyn (violin), Thom Gill (vocals, guitar), Bram Gielen (bass), Justin Haynes (guitar), Frank Horvat (keys, songwriter), Jean Martin (percussion), Erika Nielsen (cello), Joseph Phillips (bass), Evan Tighe (percussion), Felicity Williams (vocals)
