Itís the kind of music that one canít get sick of listening to or watching,
over and over and even over. In a world of musical overkill and saturation,
By Divine Right stands above, each listen still fresh, still so mysterious.
Itís called music with a past, present and a future.
By Divine Right have been touring, recording, touring, writing, and
touring, well it seems like forever, but every show they do is like a first
experience for the audience, even for the die-hard fans. Never before has a
group guided their audience through such vast fields of emotions as Jose
Miguel Contreras, Colleen Hixenbaugh, Brian Borcherdt and Dylan ďDillĒ
Hudecki. They can take you from a smirk as you reminisce or try to imagine
what a musical love-in is really like, to a mouth gaping wonderment at the
brilliance of playing their collection of instruments. You will rock out,
almost in a head banging way and then you will calmly sway as they charm your
senses. Each member being highly skilled in various instruments, it is not
out of place to see them change it up. Jose the frontman, lead singer and
uber-songwriter. Brian with his degree in the science of sound and Colleen
gracing the stage hypnotically. The Dill is really a superhero character.
The group in various incarnations prior to this formation has consistently been
considered leaders in Canadian alternative rock music. Jose has put out
numerous albums over the years, yet within this present group he has found
his fellow family of musicians.
ď This album has no frills. Itís about guitars, impassioned vocals and all about the
live feel of the band. It came out the way I wanted it to, unlike past albums.
I produced this record entirely and wanted this record to be a transition from
studio feel to the live feel.Ē Jose
Between albums, By Divine Right have held court on stages from small town USA to
Australian rock festivals to military capitals in China. They were the second
group from Canada to tour the Chinese provinces and are considered rock demi-gods
in Beijing, Shenyang, Shijiazhuang, Zhouzhou, Zhejiang, Wuhan, Zhengzhou,
Jiangsu Province, and Shanghai, covering every major urban center in China.
Now By Divine Right offer up their best album ever. Sweet Confusion is, as Jose would
say, a Fuel Injection. It is the album that will be apart of music loverís record
collections for years to come. The album will be released on July 20th, 2004 on Linus
Entertainment/Warner Music Canada and the group will be touring heavily to support
the release. Sweet Confusion will be released simultaneously in the US through
SpinART/Ryko . A video for the first single Soft Machine will be directed by Sean
The last By Divine Right album Good Morning Beautiful generated two Top 30 Rock radio hits,
Supernatural and Soul Explosion.
ď Sweet Confusion is all about adrenaline, almost manic. Side 1 is up, up, up and side
2 is more trippier.Ē Jose
Jose, The Dill, Colleen and Brian will continue to astound fans, industry and fellow
musicians with their stunning talent and sweet natures and oh yes, they WILL rock you hard.
