Bio 

Wax Philosophic was formed late in 2000 by; Reach (Jarret Schilke), D-Cyphur (Derek Desa), Sheik (Darren Desa) & Jenero Sanus (Bryan Johnston). At the time, Reach was off in acting school at The Neighbourhood Playhouse in New York City, D-Cyphur was at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec learning the ropes to become a doctor and Jenero was in Winnipeg exploring his creative side looking for direction musically while Sheik held down the fort back home finishing up a portion of his teaching degree. The three tried to correspond on coming home at the same time so that they may play shows together and to work on new endeavours at the same time, the first of which was a show at The Apollo late in December of 2000. Jenero did not take part in the show but he was supporting the cause from the audience, beer in hand. The first show was a success and thus started a fan base. It was only up from there, playing shows throughout Thunder Bay for some community events, opening for other groups or events, competing in a local talent battle and of course, doing countless shows on their own allowing other groups to get their name out there as well, and not hiphop groups either. As a group they loved local talent and wanted their shows to be as diverse as possible, thus meeting all types of groups and genres hiding in the crevasses of Thunder Bay.
