Brothers Stuart and Michael Lister along with drummer Marco Rayes have been navigating the inner landscapes of peace, faith, love, sex and redemption. Formed in their hometown of Ottawa, Canada, Lister’s brand of pop rock marries vulnerable lyrical introspection, melodic explosive hooks and groove based back beats.
Lister’s first full-length CD entitled Half-Built Set, was recorded and released in Ottawa and mixed at Metalworks in Toronto by Ed Krautner (Tea Party, Tonic). The disk includes So Real which received national radio airplay and featured Half As Good which appeared on the WB Television Network’s Dawson’s Creek and Party of Five television series.
So Real was included on RCD Music & Bhurr Records' IndieBlast compilation, Molson Canadian’s Indieblast Sampler, and Clearnet’s A Little Bit of Canada. All compilations were released nationally.
The summer of 2001 hailed Lister’s permanent move to Los Angeles club-land where they have claimed "The Gig" as their home away from home, and continue to maintain a busy performance schedule.
