Ultraviolet is a groovy experimental music project that employs acoustic drums, electric bass, electric guitars (including the tap-style Touch Guitar), and pretty much a spaceship worth of effects pedals and gadgets. Drinking from an ever-flowing, far-reaching and constantly shifting river of influences, Ultraviolet’s sound has been described as “refreshingly creative” and “equal parts mysterious, groovy and spacey.” Their collective interests in spontaneous composition present a palette of ever-evolving musical ideas unique to each performance.

Formed in the Comox Valley, within the unceded territory of the Kómoks, Ei’ksan and Pentlatch peoples, the trio consists of Oscar Robles Diaz (guitars), Brittany Bowman (bass), and Beau Stocker (drums). These three come from fairly different backgrounds both geographically and musically speaking, and their respective paths have taken them to different corners of the world and allowed them to share their original music with international audiences. As a result, their combined touring curriculum boasts performance experience in Latin America, Asia, the UK, and Canada. The trio currently has their first album in the works and this past March released two music videos – Ophidia and Aphrodite – both of which are live recordings, with the latter title currently featured on the official Touch Guitars YouTube playlist.
