B.A. Johnston is a highly spirited musician hailing from Hamilton, Ontario. His songs are unabashedly honest, uniquely quirky and cover controversial topics such as: deep frying, pirates, poutine, video games and love.

He has released five albums and has spent the last eight years touring the country in his mother’s Toyota Previa minivan, providing Canadians with a truly wild performance. He has shared the stage with acts like The Rheostatics, The Constantines, Cuff the Duke, The Silverhearts, The Guthries, and Joel Plaskett.

He has played such high profile schmooze fests like Halifax Pop Explosion, SappyFest (Sackville), Close to the Coast (Charlottetown), and Ranchfest (Vancouver).

He hopes one day to be rich and famous, buy a deep fryer for his bedroom, and finally dance with a girl when Stairway to Heaven is the last song of the night.

A shark throttles your skull : its teeth slide in between the fissures in your scalp : the scent of fresh ‘za : the sight of fresh guts : {PiZZA ViSiON}

Pizza Sharks have been writing music and playing shows for the past year, in which time they have had three releases, including two EPs and a single, and have produced a short film to go with their “Dart Distributor” release. Pizza Sharks draws on a wide canon of music and art as an influence to create their own unique and uncategorical sound.

“They will melt your face. They will damage your hearing. They will probably cause some bleeding. Pizza Sharks are alt-shoegaze from St. Catharines. They SLAY.” – Zoe Smith
