Bio

By Divine Right (BDR) features the psych-infused art-pop songwriting of singer / guitarist Jose Contreras. In the early days BDR’s ever evolving line-up, counting amongst some of its members Feist, Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene) and Brian Bordchert (Holy Fuck), made it one of Canada’s first indie rock collectives.

Yet since 2010, the By Divine Right lineup has been a fan favourite trio consisting of Contreras, Alysha Haugen (bass / vocals) and Geordie Dynes (drums / vocals). This band, heard on 2013 album “Organized Accidents” (Hand Drawn Dracula) and 2016’s track for track interpretation of Depeche Mode’s “Speak & Spell (Headless Owl Records) as well as the upcoming 2022 double LP “OTTO MOTTO” (Fortune Stellar Records) is the longest running lineup in BDR’s evolution.

By Divine Right has been recognized with Polaris Prize and Juno nominations, but most notably the adoration of admiring music fans and the CanRock music elite alike.
