Viva Mars is an indie rock band based out of Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. The band was started in 2007 by Jordan Sheppard and Christopher Russo, but it wasn’t until the arrival of Thomas Helliwell and Jonathan Neal that they began writing music seriously. It would be a misrepresentation to simply place their sound under one category as Viva Mars has been influenced by many different artists blurring the lines of musical style. Their sound is rooted in alternative, punk and folk influences. Viva Mars has recorded both professionally and independently all the while emphasizing their authenticity by staying true to their music and their sound. They recently released their debut album -- "More And More/Better And Better" -- which is available for download on iTunes. Since 2008, Viva Mars has been playing concerts in and around the Greater Toronto Area. Currently the band is writing new material with their ever-present musical creativity while continuing to perform thier live shows for their growing fan base.
