Established in Toronto, but hailing from the rural Ontario town of Chatham, we bring you Ron Bechard (bay-shard) - guitarist, backing vocalist and now contributing writer for “Edwin”.
Being deep into the Toronto music scene, Ron found himself in a few local hardcore bands such as The Crazybabies, and Atomic Tomb - who actually have a full-length cd that one can get ahold of if they search hard enough. His main musical influences include those of the metal/hardcore vain, and his style of playing shows this comparison.
Other past professions that Ron has endured comprise of a suit and tie job as a stock broker for a powerful Canadian company, and also he was head of the Y2K bug prevention program in T.O. In addition to these jobs, he attended college for media/web design.
In early 2000, Ron was asked to replace current guitarist Chris Sczesniak and started extensive touring with the rest of the band in March of that year. Since then he has created his own fan-base due to his musical creativity, style, and good personality.
Of late, you’ll find Ron writing for the new Edwin album. One can bet on this being heavier than its predecessor, ASATS, due to Ron’s considerable involvement.
Some bands you’ll currently find Ron into include:
Kyle McDonald & Katy Jackson
