A Stroke of Luck for Canada's Sound and Fury

Published: 2004-11-17
One of Canada's newer rock'n'roll bands has been given an opportunity most artists can only dream of. While many acts are trying fruitlessly to break into the world of music, Sound and Fury are already halfway there. The hardcore rockers are the first group to receive the perks of the 'Legends and Prodigies' contest.

The 'Legends and Prodigies' talent-search was organized to give emerging artists a hand-up in the confusing world of the music industry. Bands performing music in the genres of rock, R&B, hip hop, and Latin pop are all eligible to enter the contest, from which a single band will be chosen. The band that's won the contest (the prodigy) is then paired with a famous musician (the legend) for an international tour.

Not too shabby a deal for Toronto-based quintet Sound and Fury, the first group to win the contest. The band already kicked off their 'Legends and Prodigies' tour on November 13th in Los Angeles. The 'legend' that the rocker 'prodigies' have been paired with is none other than former Motley Crue singer Vince Neil. Following the LA kick off of the tour, Sound and Fury are set to fly to Moscow to make a video, and from there will head out on a tour of Europe and Asia.

For more information of the 'Legends and Prodigies' competition including entry requirements, go to www.legendsandprodigies.com. To find out where Sound and Fury will be playing alongside Vince Neil, go to the band's official website at www.soundandfuryrocks.com. There it's also possible to listen to 8 of the band's tracks.
