Here's another group from Vancouver B.C. called "Shindell".  The players on this project have been playing around  the Vancouver area for years, but collectively they put this project together in 2001.  Brent has been making music forever... First with The Northwest Company, High Flying Bird, Doucette, Shari Ulrich, Valdy and Pete & The Sneaks, and many more too numerous to mention. Brent recorded his second solo c.d. last year with an all-star line up.  I had the privilege to get the call to sit in with him and Billy when they were in my area last year....... what a great week-end!!
