Projektor is a Canadian rock band who have been praised for their intense, dynamic music and impressive and inspiring live show. As of July 2004, they are about to release Young Hearts Fail, the follow-up to their successful debut record, Red Wolf Glass.
Started in 2000, Projektor consists of (L-R) vocalist/bassist and founder Jahmeel Russell, Jeremy Gillespie on guitar and keyboards, Johnny Stewart on guitar and Darren Achorn on drums. Since their inception the band has consistently been recognized as one of Western Canada's most exciting new bands. Projektor was selected as one of the top 5 “Up and Coming Canadian” new artists by What! Magazine and chosen as finalists in CBC radio’s “Big Break” contest.
Having toured Canada several times, including dates with Eric's Trip, Moneen, Radiogram, and The Waking Eyes, Projektor is a regular fixture at such noted events as Canadian Music Week, Western Canadian Music Week, New Music West and The Halifax Pop Explosion.
In early 2006, the band announced it was going on hiatus to allow the members to pursue some individual projects. In November 2006, Jahmeel and Jeremy joined Johnny and Sam Osland (Burnthe8track) in a special reprise Canadian tour of Johnny's former band Mico.
