CLARK the band was a Canadian indie rock band operating out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The band was formed in Ottawa in 1999 by John Tielli who sang, played guitar and composed. Initially named simply “Clark”, the group found this problematic due to other groups being identically or similarly named. It was decided that using the name “CLARK the band” would help to alleviate the issue.
The group’s roster changed throughout its existence with Tielli being the only consistent member. Primary members also included Matt Gagnon on bass and vocals, Mike Dubue on keyboards and vocals, Philip Shaw Bova on drums, Andrew McCormack on drums, Jeremy Gara on drums, Tim Kingsbury on bass and vocals, Vish Khanna on drums, Robin Buckley on drums, Dan Neill on drums, vocals and keyboards, Ryan Myshrall on bass, Jo
