Born in Montreal, Far From Shore crafted their sound in industrial loft spaces while recording at Apollo Sound Studios with funding from the Government of Quebec. The result, Wazo, is a globally aware culmination of rock music that is at once elegant and poetic, yet raw and sincere. The CD has been met with enthusiastic reviews from both critics and fans alike.

"Brilliant, energetic and soulful."
--Anon, The Montreal Mirror

"If everyone took the time to listen to your enchanting sound, there would be no wars."
--Ely Ghaffari, No Intro

"Great sound! It's refreshing to be able to hear all the instruments clearly rather than mashing them all into one coarse melody that's so popular today. Gandhar has a great voice... soft, but powerful."
--A. Hunter, Warrior Magazine

"Great musical talent.... Lead vocalist Gandhar gels nicely with the accompanied sound.... With steady and creative drum tracks and the occasional guitar solo accompanied by brilliant lyrics, these cats posses the ability to put on a show."
--Tiny Elvis, Indie Revue

"An energetic and honest effort that blends alternative rock influences with more worldly ones.... The frequent religious references in the lyrics stick out, but fear not, this isn't Christian rock; the music is far more concerned with politics than preaching.... beautiful."
--Tracey Lindeman, The Link
