Double Experience is an Ottawa-based group with a geeky worldview that is all their own. Band members Ian Nichols (vocals) and Brock Tinsley (guitars) have bonded with a passionate global fanbase with their undeniable live prowess, all while maintaining a strong DIY-ethic that saw them through hundreds of concerts across 16 countries. In 2020, they released their Dungeons & Dragons-inspired album Alignments, which earned them nominations for “Band of the Year” and “Album of the Year” at the Capitol Music Awards.

By day, the mild-mannered band members deliver music-oriented workshops and at schools, conventions and conferences (including IndieWeek, MAGFest and Ottawa ComicCon). Double Experience teaches up-and-coming creatives how to take control of their own destiny in a similar way as the duo’s musical alter-ego. In 2016, their Destiny-themed anthem “The Glimmer Shot” caught the attention of the videogame’s developers, earning the band unique in-game rewards and over one million Spotify plays to boot.

Presently, Double Experience can be found writing songs with chat members on their Twitch channel. Last December, the band’s international community had raised over $4,000 for their local no-kill dog rescue, BARK Ottawa.
