Faint Reflection is a Canadian modern rock band from Toronto, Ontario, formed in late 2009 by founding members Mark Fitz (Guitars) and Joni Taupier (Drums). They spent countless hours writing and composing to create 27 tracks, boiled down to a 10-song demo disk from which they released samples to the general public for review. Positive feedback led them to conduct a professional studio production to attract a professional label.
By the spring of 2010, Mark Fitz had been in contact with various labels and producers trying to find the right sound for their 10-track demo and assist in having it re-created into a radio-friendly and marketable investment. Mark Fitz appreciated the candor and professionalism of Voodoo Records producer, Mike Dmitrovich (“Mike D”). Joni Taupier and Mark Fitz signed the recording and marketing contract to Voodoo Records as a current "two piece" group.
Once the contracts were signed and initialed, it was time to commence Mike D's production of Faint Reflection. With Mike D’s guidance, the next few months were spent painstakingly working on Faint Reflection’s signature sounds and properly tracking them in the three basic elements of drums, stage 1 guitars, and bass. By late 2010, Mark Fitz and Joni Taupier were ready to begin scouting for the missing components of Faint Reflection: lead vocalist and bassist. After countless auditions in early 2011, Mike Paolini (lead vocalist) and Ray Dahan (bassist) filled Faint Reflection’s roster of talent.
Band in Motion
Faint Reflection is hard at work in the studio producing their debut album, “Breaking the Silence”, whose completion is anticipated in 2011. In the meantime, they have also been performing at Toronto venues. In the spring, the band participated in a charity event for the homeless at the legendary El Mocambo. They later performed in the Universal Music Showcase at The Mod Club. Not only has the band established their sound and lighting crew, a music video will be filmed at their first headliner show, Anarchy, at The Opera House in August. Their national tour kick off is planned for 2011/2012.
