Transcript of Marianas Trench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Josh Ramsay: Lead singer
Matt Webb: Lead Guitarist
Mike Ayley: Lead Bass
Ian Casselman: Drums
Josh Ramsay is the lead singer of the band with a bad
past. In Magee Secondary, he started to take heroin at Grade 11. He soon got busted for it and was suspended. He soon was forced to go to rehab and wrote a love letter to heroin, now a song called Lover Dearest. He also suffered bulimia and insomnia. Now, clear of all the heroin, he wants to keep writing music and continue with his passion with music. Since he grew up in a musical family, with his mother being a vocal teacher and his father owning a studio,it is no surprise that Josh played his first instrument (the piano) at two and can now play over 9 instruments. He also has been producing songs for Carly Rae Jepsen, Victoria Duffield and Emily Osment, just to name a few. Finally, he has recently been nominated for a Grammy for co-writing Call Me Maybe.
Matt Webb is the lead guitarist and has been a friend to Josh ever since high school. They went to choir together and started a band called Ramsay's Fiction. After he graduated high school, he dropped that band and decided to go to university. However, after the first semester, he decided to dropped out to help Josh start a new band, now called Marianas Trench. He also has produced his first debut album, Coda and Jacket, a series of seven songs, and as he calls it, one thing crossed off of his "bucket list."
Shortly after Marianas Trench started, Josh and Matt found Ian through an ad in The Georgia Strait. He was quickly accepted and was another piece added to the band. Ian is a fun, crazy person to be around with and he calls himself "The Octagon."
Mike Ayley is part of the band because Ian had suggested him. They were past friends before, and how they met, we have no idea simply due to the fact there are a lack of resources.

Formation of the Band
As you know, Josh Ramsay lived in a musical family, with his father owning a recording studio and mother being a vocal teacher. Also, he did drugs in Grade 11. Before that, however, he started a band in Magee with his choir friend Matt Webb, Ramsay Fiction. However, after Josh got kicked out of high school, he wanted to take his dream of starting a band to the next level. In 2000, he and Matt started to look for a bass guitarist and a drummer. One day, they discovered Ian Casselman by a ad in the Georgia Strait. Through Ian, they added their final member to their band which happened to be Mike Ayley. They got signed to 604 records by Chad Kroenger, the lead singer of Nickelback. They started out slow, losing a bit of money for their first ever music video, Say Anything. However, their second music video, Shake Tramp snuck its way up to Number One in Canada's top 10 music videos. Now look at where they are now. From one album to four. From a small performance at a bar to a arena tour. From one nomination and award to 14. Looking back, these amazing men came a long way, but had many sacrifices as well.
