Cosmo Doris
Cosmo Doris or single man Dylan Hendrick hails from the city of Belleville, but isn't known for sitting still. Cosmo meticulously formulates his electronic music into a genre much more grande to simply be inputted as an electronic sound - pervading an aura one can only understand by listening.
Electronic/Dream Pop duo from Ottawa.
Alex Silas & The Subterraneans
Inspired by everything from blues to punk, country to reggae, folk to electronic, the Ottawa-based artist sets himself apart by ensuring his sound doesn't fall into any predetermined molds. "
"I call artists like Alex "bridges" as he seamlessly combines some groovy hip hop with some country-influenced alternative pop. He's one to watch."
- Kevin McGowan, Ottawa Citizen Capital Revue

The BelleRegards
The BelleRegards are a four-piece folk band based out of Toronto and play what they like to call "rowdy folk". With more than a hint of bluegrass and rockabilly, the band is identified by high-energy live shows, foot-stomping rhythms, trad breaks, and good humour. The members of the band hail from four different provinces in Canada and each bring a unique flavour to The BelleRegards' sound which is built on the raw vocals of Matthew Kingsley and Melanie Hilmi, driven by the slap-rhythms and bowed upright bass of Mitchell Thomson, and infused with old-timey French-Canadian fiddle by David Poulin.
"If you enjoy good folk or have a soft spot for a band like Mumford and Sons, then this is music you’ll be happy to hear... Their live show isn’t one to miss, as it’s full of energetic, foot stomping tunes to hold a glass to."
- Jo Hayward,

New Speak
New Speak is a hard hitting, high energy, rock trio from Peterborough, Ontario. The trio seamlessly blends classic covers, ranging from AC/DC to ZZ Top, with original material inspired by masters such as Led Zeppelin, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against The Machine.
Brothers Devin and Dawson McManus - guitar and bass, met Ben Smith - drums, in 2005 and have played in various bands together over the proceeding years, developing a chemistry that can been seen and felt from the stage and heard in their music. In February of 2014, the three decided it was time to set out on their own as the power trio New Speak, rocking live music venues and keeping audiences on their feet ever since.
Fathers of Modern Rocketry
Many millennia ago in the rugged wilderness of what is now an eclectic mix of hipsters and the elderly - the community of Peterborough ON - a fortuitous series of unlikely coincidences led to the creation of a mythical beast of rock (and in many instances, roll).

Sweet Alps
Sweet Alps is a four person outfit from Ottawa Ontario featuring Nicholas O'Gorman, whose catchy guitar hooks and lead vocals are the foundation of the band, Colleen McKeracher, bassist extraordinaire, Jamie Bogue, guitarist with the most phenomenal licks and Sean Paterson whose whose drum rhythms keep the whole band ticking. Colleen met Nick in university and formed a punk band known as Boxhands. After disbanding in 2010, Nick and Colleen began to move away from the raw and aggressive music of punk, and formed Sweet Alps. Joining forces with Jamie and Sean, whose band Bad Doctor often played Boxhands, Sweet Alps had found their sound, with influences from folk, pop, ska, punk and classic rock. This Indie Rock band will be taking over the Ottawa scene with both catchy choruses and soulful ballads.
