Lynn Jackson
An authenticity runs through Canadian singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson's music that reflects a deep commitment to telling stories that ring true with listeners. Combine this with her gentle voice, rich instrumentation and sweet melodies and you get a sound that is roots-Americana with a hint of folk-pop.
John Allaire
John Allaire is an experienced, award-winning singer/songwriter. His lyrical depth, sprinkled with real life stories about people that everyone can relate to, and his ability to connect with an audience makes both his recorded material and live shows an intimate, edgy and eclectic experience. John is no stranger to performing and recording his own brand of guitar-driven alt-country/roots/folk. John delivers a unique musical experience that does not easily fit into one genre. His well-arranged work is driven by sincerity and humour.
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.

Copper Crown
Formed in early 2015, Copper Crown is a Toronto-based 5-piece ensemble. After spending months piecing together a refined sound, emanating from individual backgrounds in soul, punk, rock, ska and metal music, the band held their first show in their condemned jam house for a (now annual) Halloween bash, and proceeded to play shows all around Toronto and the GTA. The band recorded their debut EP over the winter months for release in the spring of 2016.
Copper Crown's style is not easily defined beyond the broad label of "ska rock"; the bandmates take pride in writing individual parts directed by their own, unique backgrounds in music, which results in a lot of surprising outcomes; such as the dancey ska rock tune "The Messenger" which has a hard rock breakdown, or the 50's style crooner "Irene" and its unexpected punk rock interlude.
