Vitaminsforyou is a Canadian electronic music project led by Bryce Kushnier, a pioneer of the “lo-fi bedroom electronics” genre of music. Originally based in Winnipeg, the band currently operates from Toronto.

History[edit]

Kushnier began creating music in 1998 and later toured Canada with many notable musicians. He said in interviews that he doesn’t much like working with bands, therefore, he finds it much easier just to work from home with his computer. His music fuses electronica, acoustic folk, and psychedelia.

His credits include work with many critically acclaimed artists, including Lullabye Arkestra, Mitchell Akiyama, Emm Gryner, Ghislain Poirier, Montag, Hexes and Ohs and Mike Feuerstack. He has also played for Winnipeg and Toronto filmmakers Matthew Etchies and Elvis Prusic and scores for Montreal choreographers such as Andrew Tay, Sasha Kleinplatz and Dana Michel.

Kushnier also has extensive experience as a DJ, playing in Toronto collectives such as Do Make Say Think and Fritz Helder & The Phantoms. Kushnier has been awarded the prestigious Song of the Year Qwartz Pro/Art Electronic Music Award for the single "The Ukrainians".
