About 50th parallel

2011 has proved to be a successful year for progressive acoustic duo Fiftieth Parallel. After a busy summer opening for the likes of Shane Philip and Delhi 2 Dublin, and performances at The Big Time Out and Rhythm On The Rock to name but a few they began work on their 13-track debut album, consisting of all-original instrumental acoustic music.

Strongly influenced by the likes of Australian acoustic guitarists John Butler and Kim Churchill, Fiftieth Parallels first full-length release combines the likes of Butler and Churchill with the hypnotic sounds of Pink Floyd and Tool: It was a long process, but in the end it turned out much better than we expected it to, says Fiftieth Parallel.

The duo consists of Phil Marchand on acoustic guitar and Jonathan Hinds on acoustic guitar and djembe. The pair met during Sound Advices School Of Rock back in 2009. After the demise of the group they formed playing the likes of Metallica and Judas Priest Marchand and Hinds formed Fiftieth Parallel, named after Campbell Rivers location on the 50th Parallel.

Fiftieth Parallel released their debut full-length album in December 10th and is now on sale at MusicPlant in Campbell River and will soon be on sale in Courtenay.
