"We get more than our fair share of material from independent artists looking to break their material into the scene and even though a lot of material is just a lot of material, there is always that little bit that shines through on occasion to give us faith in opening the mail again." - RPM Weekly

Cyr - is Canada's newest star studded, powerhouse trio, whose infectious debut EP "When it Rains" is making a splash with music lovers and critics through out North America and abroad.

Since the winter 2004, following the collapse of his former band Blistercine. Cory Cyr has been busy cultivating a new sound and writing songs for his current project entitled "When it Rains." To fully realize his musical vision Cyr turned to producer/musician Jordon Zadorozny to produce and engineer "When It Rains" at his French Kiss recording studio, located in Pembroke Ontario. Zadoroznys list of producing credits includes: Auf Der Maur, Sam Roberts, Hole, Cheerleader, The Sonny Best Band, and many more. All songs from When it Rains were written and performed by Corey Cyr featuring Zadorozny on drums. When it Rains has been described as, aggressive, edgy, melodic and downright contagious, with remarkable hooks, rock-solid musicianship, with intense vocals and inexplicably witty lyrics.

At the core of Cyr (the Band) is a dynamic percussion section featuring Corey Zadorozny (formally) of the Sam Roberts Band on drums & Pete Frolander from Blinker the Star on bass. All three members of CYR originally hail from Pembroke Ontario and share a common background and musical history growing up together playing in many bands around town.

CYR's music overflows with an intense authenticity, which leaves even the most sporadic listener wanting more. Best described as "aggressive, melodic alterno-pop", CYR lends itself to such acts as Nirvana, The Cars, Neil Young and The Flaming Lips. CYR possesses a hard to find combination of pop sensibility and in your face aggression. "When it Rains" is currently available on-line and in stores across Canada via Maple Nationwide. Their debut radio single "Ever Lose Somebody" is tearing the air waves with a video schedule for release in September of 2005. For more information on Cyr you can visit www.cyrmusic.com.
