20 Amp Soundchild grew up in Pickering, Ontario; originally forming in 2008 and completing their first album,

the self-titled, "20 Amp Soundchild" in the summer of 2009. Their debut EP, "The Others" was recorded and produced by Mike Turner of Crash Karma (formerly of Our Lady Peace). In Turner’s words, "I like that they have a sound of their own, Nick's vocals and Justin's guitar atop David and Ryan's solid rhythm section add up to more than the sum of their individual parts. Unique chord voicings and melody, to me at least, is the signature of 20 Amp Soundchild. I can't wait for more music from these guys, they're just finding their voice as a group and I only see them going from strength to strength."

"The Others" EP garnered a coveted spot on MTV Drops and the single ‘Lights Go Out’ received a MuchFACT video grant. The EP has sold approximately 1,000 units to date and the video has over 6,000 hits on YouTube. The lads are now in studio finishing their follow-up EP.

20 Amp Soundchild have been featured on Alan Cross' Explore Music website, they have showcased during Canadian Music Fest (2011 and 2012), opened for David Usher, Hollerado and Monster Truck, were awarded the 102.1 The Edge ‘Indie Online Band of the Month’ for June 2011, showcased at NXNE 2011 and were semi-finalists at Indie Week in October 2011. 20amp played NXNE 2012 and were touted as an "Eyes-on-the-radio-rock-crossover-prize indie with spiralling Coldplay choruses and played with a defiant, genuine attitude." Moreover, as Alan Cross stated, 20 Amp Soundchild are a "Straight ahead radio-friendly rock band from Pickering, Ontario, who have opened for everyone from Kim Mitchell to My Darkest Days."

What sets 20 Amp Soundchild apart from their peers is their ability to write and perform radio friendly rock/pop tunes while still demonstrating a serious knowledge and fervour for genuine soulful musicianship. 20amp have a spate of summer festivals on their agenda and they on touring in the fall; playing shows in colleges across southern Ontario and ultimately across Canada.
