Melanie Peterson
Melanie Peterson has been referred to as “Mary Poppins with a broken heart” by BBC Radio and has been recognized as having “a beautiful voice” and being a “terrific songwriter” by Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun. She earned a spot within the independent music scene in March 2012, when she showcased her original music during Canadian Music Week, at the Royal York Library Bar. She was invited back to perform two showcases at CMW 2013. She launched her first full-length album UNBREAKABLE in April 2013. Melanie followed that up with a triumphant NXNE showcase. Most recently Melanie released a single called SUNSHINE produced by Mitch Girio.
Krista Hartman
"Her lyrics move beyond the confessional approach to take in a wider, thoughtful perspective on things."
Edmonton Journal
"Krista Hartman is in pole position to become one of the nation’s favourite troubadours. Hartman attended schools in Alberta and Quebec before producing and performing her songs, completing an unusual musical apprenticeship with a spell in Australia and Southeast Asia as a busker. Her unique sound sets her apart."
*Cambridge Uni, UK
Civil Wray
Civil Wray marks a personal and professional change for Andrea de Boer. After touring nationally and internationally including Germany, Turkey, Australia and the U.S. as blueVenus, Andrea decided it was time for a new approach. Collaborating with producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Holly Mcnarland, Jill Barber) Andrea takes both musical and personal chances with Civil Wray, offering an indie rock vibe, a twinge of country, and an infusion of Latin pop and soul that elevates her trademark smoky vocals.

Across the Board
Across The Board (ATB) is an award-winning Canadian indie rock/Americana band of multi-instrumentalist musicians with over 160 Youtube videos, debut album and an upcoming EP, who seamlessly combine creative talents to push their pop-rock sounds to the edge of the rock 'n roll envelope.
With harmonious power vocals and catchy electric guitar riffs ATB's sound is elevated to percussive awesomeness with heart breaking, gut shaking, knee-buckling beats. ATB offers a critical chemistry of smooth musical transitions, lush harmonies and infectious lead electric guitar riffs, having developed the unique ability to bond immediately with their audiences--both on air and in live performances-- reflecting their commitment to providing the ultimate live music experience to fans. They are addicting to listen to and even more fun to watch perform.

While they consider their music to be largely in the pop-rock genre, their unique sound often veers into alternative country, funk, and even a little blues. The songs begin with Mary Ann who crafts each one on guitar before bringing it to the band where everyone contributes their talents.

Rick from Pile
Pile is a loud band from Boston, Massachusetts. Sometimes Rick plays the songs solo. This is one of those times.
Footings
Footings is a vehicle for the songs of Eric Gagne, who also played with Death to Tyrants, Dweller on the Threshold, and Redwing Blackbird. He is often joined by Elisabeth Fuchsia on viola, and/or Dustin Ashley Cote on drums, and together they create music that has been described, by an actual writer, as part Songs:Ohia, part Godspeed You Black Emperor. We're not sure if that is necessarily true, but we think it sounds cool!
