Born in the misty backwoods of BC's Gulf Islands, there's little known of Pacific Northwest glam artist Art d'Ecco. His debut "Trespasser" (released Oct. 12th, Paper Bag Records) was a dynamic shot from nowhere - received with universal critical acclaim and wide-eyed wonder. “Trespasser is not just chock full of swaggering rock ’n’ roll tunes that find the common ground between T. Rex, Sparks, Deerhunter and Ziggy Stardust and run with it in wholly satisfying fashion, but those songs are delivered by an enigmatic and elaborately attired auteur who takes the time to cultivate a proper peacock mystique alongside the music. Canadian indie-rock could use a bit more of that.” - The Toronto Star
