The Divided Line / Bio

Toronto-based band, The Divided Line, might be the next big thing in Canadian rock music.

Inspired by the music of alternative metal bands, such as Tool and Incubus, Blair Barton (Guitar) began writing songs in 2009. His desire to make the project a reality soon saw the band grow to include longtime friend, Reza Shaffaf (Bass Guitar), and drummer, Julien Bigras. It wasn't long until the band started creating a buzz both in and out of Toronto. Their captivating style had even caught the attention of major industry representatives from RoadRunner Records and Warner Music.

After a couple of lineup changes, rock singer-songwriter, Venn (Vocals), was introduced to the band in 2013 as the new vocalist. Her dynamic vocals brought a whole new edge to The Divided Line's sound while still maintaining the band's artistic vision.

Intense grooves. Atmospheric sounds. The Divided Line is a band that defies all boundaries, pushing their fans to their limits then back again. With their unique brand of progressive rock, the band delivers a melodic, hard-hitting sound, putting an innovative spin on the hard rock genre.
