Phoenix Christ is an Up and Coming New Grunge Rock/Metal band located in Saskatoon, Sk, Canada. The band has been together for almost a year now, though, it originated in 2006 with two main members, Phoenix Christa and Red Jesus. Since then the line up has had many changes and now consists of the following Members::
Phoenix - Phoenix Started writing songs at the early age of 2, starting with original music she would write on her parents old piano. She has been a performer her whole life starting with piano recitals, concerts and choir all through her school years. As part of the choir she was consistently praised for her vocal abilities and given different solo positions.` - She went on to find interest in Guitar in her twenties and is 100% self taught - Aside from Phoenix Christ she has done much solo work, been featured on many different web radio stations, and worked with many other artists. Her guitar combines an aspect of classic piano playing meets new rock n roll style - her biggest guitar influences being from Metallica and Godsmack. She has many vocal influences but her biggest influence will always be Ritchie Valens.
Red Jesus - RJ has been playing guitar for well over 15 years now. In his teenage years he even had the chance to get professional guitar lessons from successful guitarist and songwriter, Charlie Shock. RJ went on to start his first highschool rock band 'Coil' and then 'Grit' and has since been in a few other projects. RJ is also a self taught drummer, and during times when Phoenix Christ didn't have a drummer he would pick up the slack and fill in. RJ also has a diploma in Graphic Design and Media and has done all of the bands Sound Producing. He is also a self taught bassist and works in back up vocals when needed. His biggest influences include: Metallica, RHCP, White Zombie and Slayer
Loads- Loads has fire growing cancerously out of his ass! He brings a sense of urgency with a touch of shred like blood - directly from the pits of hell...
The Phenom- The Phenom is the newest member to join the Phoenix Christ Revolution. A self taught drummer of 13 years with black metal and hard rock roots, his beats are the missing piece to the Phoenix Christ Puzzle.
