first met in September 2015 while attending the Music Industry Arts program at Algonquin College. The four quickly took a liking to each other and soon after jamming in Jacks basement for the first time in the cold of December, Nessie was formed. What first started as a groovy rock band quickly shifted and matured into the new Nessie. Heavier, more technical, precise, melodic and above all unique. With the full length album just on the horizon, Nessie hopes and strives to be the new taste of rock and metal the genre's need today.
