MONTHLY SPOTLIGHT

Gene Pool

Latest single "Not A Suicide"

​"Gene Pool": A brand new idea, wrought from a seed that had been planted more than 20 years ago. 
Three High School mates, and two long time mutual friends from Toronto round out this lineup with a sound that sits on the verge, being both melodic and edgy, and rounded out with an unmistakably bluesy guitar sound. Gene Pool's songs, along with the many years of experience this collective brings, is alive with a mix of style and musicianship that hits everyone.


Gene Scarpelli: It doesn't fall far from the tree. Gene is the son of legendary guitar player Gino Scarpelli of Canadian rock icons, "GODDO". After playing his first paying gig at the age of 7 on Goddo's second record, Who Cares where he was paid $1.00 for his performance on drums. Soon after, he switched to guitar, and never looked back. In High School, Gene formed the band, Short Avenue, and started working with Vocalist Joe Vilardo, and Bassist Chris Brown. The band became quite popular and appeared on Drew Masters' (Raw Meat) CD. They saw airplay across Canada. In the U.S. Over the years Gene has worked with Gilby Clarke (Guns & Roses) and Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy / Whitesnake). Others Gene has worked with are, Helix, KIller Dwarfs, Revolver, "Scarpelli", and Crash Kelly. Also he showed support to our Canadian Troops, and made the trip over to Afghanastan to perform for Canadian Forces stationed over there. Gene is also currently pulling double duty, and playing with his Dad in Goddo.



Joe Vilardo: Since he can remember, all he's done is sing. From the days of the The Gasworks, and Rock & Roll Heaven, to the road across Canada and beyond, Joe has been making an amazing noise, and it's one you'll easily remember. In a time where everybody "sounds" like somebody: Joe doesn't. His voice, from the early days of Short Aveneue, or later on with Scream Freedom, Cottonmouth, and Scarpelli, hasn't wavered in power, feel, and volume. Between recording, and touring with his own acts, Joe has played in many cover bands in Toronto, and recorded with “Penny Black” with Russ Dwarf and Gino Scarpelli, and is currently playing covers with different acts around Ontario.



John Jamieson: Throughout his childhood, his interest in piano led John to the Royal Conservatory of Music, where he graduated from. John spent his early 20's in "Rumbleseat" a well known John Cougar Mellencamp tribute. As well, John has sat in with countless other artists across Canada. Playing with such acts as The Jade Monkeys, Peter Bloom, Karolina Ingleton, Musical Director with the Total Recall Band, not to mention playing with the legendary Drifters. As a Producer and Engineer, John has worked on many TV and Radio jingle projects and learned the art of engineering. John later worked with John Punter (Abby Road Studios) who helped take John's production skills to a whole other level, working with one of the best. John's contribution to Gene Pool musically has not only taken the band in a new direction, but raised the level of all the players involved.



Chris Brown: After hitting the road at age 18, when a cover band needed a bass player to travel to the far nether regions of Northern Canada, he was in. Over the past twenty some odd years, Chris has played with countless acts and artists from top 40 cover bands, tributes, as well as playing and recording with some of Canada's best. Playing genres from country to metal, Chris has played with a quite an eclectic group. In the early 90's, Chris played and recorded with Blues artist Al Brown and recorded the album (Sed & Dun). With Chaz Butcher, he played and recorded with Blah Blah Blah. Later, with long time writing partner Terry Baker, Chris recorded two CD’s under the name, Sauce Boy, which garnered attention in the U.S. and led to touring south of the border. Most recently, Chris has played in Live Sex Show with (Darren Smith v. Jake E. Lee) along with Michael Shotton (v. L.R.S. and Von Groove) and is currently part of the Total Recall Show Band.



Karl Anderson: Born and raised in Toronto, Drummer Karl Anderson has spent the majority of his 25 year professional career writing and recording with acts in Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. Though his teeth were cut on the Canadian cover band circuit, he finds it far more satisfying when he's creating with other like minded musicians. Karl has a vast repertoire of songs stored away, and is often called upon to sit in with various performers for live and studio work around Toronto, not to mention the founding member of the Total Recall Show Band. Karl was the final piece to be added to the Gene pool puzzle, and once it was all put together, there was no doubt this was where he belongs.
