One Bad Son

April 12, 2:30 p.m.

Sometimes it's hard to be a little fish in a big pond, but when Saskatoon rockers One Bad Son decided to move from their prairie home to Vancouver in 2011 they were prepared for the challenge.

"At first it wasn't easy," says Kurt Dahl, drummer for the group. "In Saskatoon, we were one of the biggest bands there... We had to earn our (Vancouver) fanbase, which, for real rock 'n' roll, it's like that. You build your following one show at a time. It was a reality check."

Two years later, the band has begun to establish themselves — and etch out a place in the city's sparse rock scene. They signed to local label 604 Records for their self-titled album, released last year, and, recently, have seen their single "Scarecrows" shoot up the Canadian music charts thanks to widespread rock radio airplay. "Every rock station in the country, more or less, was playing it," Dahl says. "It opens up a lot of doors when you have something like that take off."
