The band consists of lead singer and guitarist Jessica Pearson, fiddle player Maddy O'Regan and double bassist Pat Bigelow. Jessica Pearson and the East Wind's dynamic live shows take you on a journey through their lives with heart warming harmonies, the liveliness of maritime kitchen parties, and intimate traditional melodies.
Terry Fernihough
I'm a songwriter from Ottawa, Ontario. That's in Canada. It's a long way from Nashville. So what's a writer to do? Moving isn't an option. I'm working from the outside, trying to find my own way in an industry that is very focused on Nashville. I've managed to get several songs cut with a country artist in the UK, and I've had several holds here in Canada. I've also been writing with some of Canada's finest up and coming artists, and with writers who I deeply respect.
Jessie Treneer
Jessie Treneer is a Canadian country musician on the rise. Her first single 'First Love Kinda Feeling' hits radio stations across Canada in 2016 with the release of her FACTOR funded album 'Reckless Heart'.

Butterflies & Zebras
"Acid without the acid" is how Butterflies & Zebras were described by the Ottawa Citizen. B&Z are two guitarists and a percussionist who "paint in sound", originally inspired by the sonic tapestries of Jimi Hendrix but adding folk, free-jazz, blues and world music into the mix.

The "Hang" or "Handpan" is a new invention, that looks like an UFO and possibly makes you fly higher than a UFO could do. "PROGETTO HANG" is the name of his main project, where his Hang is connected with the acoustic guitar played by Stefano Maura.
Luca Bertelli is firstly a traveler so, after spending a couple of years playing all around Italy, he brought his music abroad in many European countries (England, Netherlands, Germany, France, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark), in the Emirates, in India, Japan, New York City, etc. Next stop: Canada.
He's working on his new album, a mix of his music and some audio recordings that he took around the world.
