The Toronto quintet I Mother Earth was the subject of a bidding war as a result of their riveting live performances, which blended their melodic heavy rock with poetry readings and other performance art leanings. Led by brothers Christian Tanna on drums and Jagori Tanna on guitar, the band signed with Capitol and released their Mike Clink-produced debut Dig in 1993.

Dig yielded three moderate radio hits in the driving "Levitate," the incendiary "Rain Will Fall," and the kinetic "Not Quite Sonic." Frontman Edwin was a powerful vocalist who easily cut through the band's music, which combined traditional hard rock with percussive elements to create a unique style. Other standout tracks included the spacey, Doors-like "So Gently We Go," and "No One," which highlighted the Santana-influenced guitar work of Jagori. A heavyweight debut by a dynamic band that showed great instrumental prowess combined with a strong sense of melody.
