“Who Knows What I Am?”
Few really knew the answer to that question in early 2005.
Downward Spiral started out as an ensemble band at the
Campus of Performing Arts (COPA).
In time, the ability of the ensemble group developed and the bond between members began to grow stronger.
In one of many “jam” sessions an attempt was made to write an original song. After one grueling, yet satisfying practice session, Downward Spiral was born.
After much debate and evaluation, Downward Spiral has finally settled on its band members. Michelle Rohrbeck (Vocals) delivers powerful vocals with reference to all aspects of life, love, heartache and pain.
Gavin Bowie (Bass) executes a solid bass line while Sean Stephen (Guitar) presents guitar rhythms and solos that chill the spine, melt the heart and please the soul. Wayne Clayden (Drums) combines this mixture with a perfectionist’s touch that not only keeps the band in time, but the crowd in motion too.
The members of Downward Spiral come from different backgrounds and consequently have various influences. From Old School Rock to Emo to Alternative to Metal. As a result Downward Spiral produces a unique sound which is just as pleasing on stage as it is on CD. Each member of
Downward Spiral has a passion for music which manifests itself in their high energy stage performance.
Downward Spiral aspires to create music that anybody from every walk of life can relate to. Together with developing and maintaining a devoted fan base, Downward Spiral strives to be recognized on the local as well as the international stage.

No matter what trials and tribulations may befall the band,
Downward Spiral will always be there to “Stand their ground”.
