Maverick Cinema is an independent folk-rock band based on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. There influences include bands and artists like City & Colour, Dan Mangan, Current Swell, Half Moon Run, and Good for Grapes. They have recently finished the recording of their debut EP, which is slated for an early 2016 release.

The project was formed in early 2015 by singer/songwriter Marshal Dillabough, and drummer/percussionist Cam Harper as a two piece collaboration. Since the recording of their debut EP the band has since expanded into a 5 piece including some of Nanaimo’s brightest musicians.

Since their arrival upon the Islands music scene, they have become one of the most ambitious musical acts on Vancouver Island. Even in their short lifespan as a band they prove that they have no intentions of slowing down. With powerful, raw, and emotional instrumentation along with haunting lyrical storytelling the music will make you want to dance, cry, laugh, and sing all at once. Maverick Cinema is a band that strives to be felt, to be listened to and make everyone in the room understand what it means to be human. To make a strong intimate connection with the people, the music, and themselves is what they strive to perform.
