From humble roots in Hamilton Ontario, brothers, James and Ryan Guarascia, dodge stereotypes like the Queen backstage at a Slipknot gig. Not only does their larger-than-life music defy their youth, but their stage shows rock with an air of legendary potential you can’t help but feel something great is about to happen.
Ryan and James make rock music, plain and simple. Influenced by genius, you’d not be surprised to learn their influences are Dave Grohl, Jack White, The Black Keys and Hamilton’s own Arkells, Young Rival and Monster Truck. Their music is current and relevant, although infused with an authentic Blues flavour. Written and performed with passion, their jams are infectious.
Although together just a couple years, their list of achievements is impressive by any standard. Regulars at The Casbah in Hamilton, they’ve also rocked venues The Baltimore House, Club Absinthe, The Underground and multiple charity events. They’ve had the pleasure to share the stage with Library Voices, Head of the Herd, Handsome Distraction, Say Yes and The Forgotten Rebels.
TwoPeaceExtraSpicy were included in The Rising Star Competition at the 2012 Hamilton Music Awards. The following February saw the release of their first EP, Sophia. Recorded at Porcelain Records in Hamilton by Grammy Award winner, Steve Bigas and Marcone, the album has enjoyed regular airplay in the rotations of multiple internet radio stations such as Rockers Dive, Gashouse Radio, Euphonious Radio and four other stations on the 365 Network.
If you have the chance to see “TwoPeace” live, don’t pass up the opportunity. They never disappoint their crowds and are guaranteed to be another historic Hamilton act you’ll brag about how you saw them jam before they hit the big-time.
