The Rifle & The Writer is a Canadian Country music duo comprised of siblings Rebekka Paige and Colby Latocha formed in 2015. In January of 2016, they recorded their debut album Flowers of Chance in Nashville, TN. The album reflects on the hardest days of their lives caused by the fallout of previous failed musical pursuits. Dealing with regret, failed relationships, and second chances, it is an insight into the minds of two struggling musicians, and what it takes to reach ones goals.

Avant-funk, hip-hop, and something else. Mauve Grove is from Toronto and hits deep grooves. Put a dip in your hip and a glide in your stride and let your conscious grumble.
Alanna Sterling
Alanna Sterling is a rainbow haired, sui generis singer/artist from Ottawa, Canada. Her multi-genre style ranges from jazz-blues, R&B and soul, to grunge rock, to indie folk.
Coming Up Next
Coming Up Next combines a rock and roll style with intricate harmonies to produce a unique classic rock sound that will blow you away! The original music performed by Coming Up Next has been in the works for years, as drummer Alec Norris and main vocalist Dan Gale have tried to find the perfect blend of talent and personality. In late 2015, the group finally found the right mix with the amazing skills of Arthur Daniel on lead guitar, and Matt Mikkelsens smooth bass lines. We are talking butter-smooth.
