Charles Valois
Named for a Northern Ontario landmark, Valois is the solo project of Charles Hoppner. A performer since the age of 10 and a songwriter for nearly as long, Charlie has performed at numerous festivals and venues with bands and solo acoustic shows. His music blends the folk-pop drive of the Shins with the left-field art rock of David Bowie. His music has been featured by BlogTO and Silentshout.

Jinx the Cat is a four piece rock reggae jam band that loves getting people movin and groovin with our blend of reggae, rock, and boots n' cats.

Bloody Diamonds
'Bloody Diamonds' (formerly known as Eliza and the Strange) wouldn't maybe be exactly what you would think our site would review…I mean its definitely not metal…it's not punk or even full on rock for that matter…however there is something in this bands music, a mix of dark horror/bluesy rock and distorted bass that has has more than peeked my interest and upon repeat listens has won me over to the point of almost championing this band out to like minded fellows…and the wider Rock n Reels community.

Elementals
We love music and we love you.
Unbuttoned
Forming in 2010, Casey MQ, Jonathan Milner, Miles Gibbons, Alexei Orechin and Kamilah Apong ventured into the depths of Casey’s basement. They made their way back out by becoming Unbuttoned, creating music that was a fresh alternative - funky sounds of R&B and Pop, supported by undertones of hip hop and electronica. Their music has challenged the tunnel vision of genre labels and highlights the beauty of crossover music.
Unbuttoned spends their time crafting their album Casey’s MQ self-made Level Me Studios. Their debut EP Electric Kingdom, released independently in North America and through P-Vine Records in Japan, received attention and guidance from both Kevin Killen (Grammy award winning engineer/producer) and the late John Carter (Capital Records). "Casey's development as a unique songwriter has been evident to me for the last six years. With his latest collaboration – the beautifully crafted "Unbuttoned - Electric Kingdom" Casey delivers a seven song EP that is magical, innovative and belies his age as a songwriter. Ones to watch", says Killen.
Unbuttoned’s movements have not gone unnoticed across the globe, receiving attention and airplay from various media outlets in Poland, Spain, and Germany, as well as CBC's Jian Ghomeshi. Unbuttoned plans to expand even more so with their upcoming sophomore release, "planes", available June 24th, 2014.
Sweet Alps
Genre: Indie/ Folk/ Pop

ANTIKS
ANTIKS are a hip-hop group consisting of MC's Lex and Jayem. Formed in 2011, the duo cites several groups and artists as influences, including: MF DOOM, M.O.P, ODB and Slick Rick. The boys first arrived on the scene via their debut mixtape Here's the Thing; which includes collaborations with Dynamite Motel, Samantha Chan and Young Legacy (Zoo Legacy).
The Rooks
The Rooks are a New York City based R&B/IndieSoul sextet just funky enough to make your mother nervous. The group formed at Wesleyan University, bonding over a mutual love of listening to Beyonce, playing at house parties, and performing Motown covers. They continue to do all three in excess.
Drawing on an eclectic catalogue of influences, from the melodic sensibilities of Stevie Wonder, to the staggered hip-hop backbeats of J Dilla, to the vocal intricacies of the Dirty Projectors, The Rooks dance along the line between music that makes you think, and feel-good-down-in-your-gut soul.
Members:
Garth Taylor - Lead Vocals
Nate Mondschein - Drums, Vocals
Spencer Hattendorf - Sax, Vocals, Perc.
Graham Richman - Guitar
Louis Russo - Bass
Gabe Gordon - Keys
With a special guest Sarah Cogan

Muffler Crunch
Heavy rock duo Muffler Crunch has risen.
Risen out of a Hull, Quebec neighborhood made infamous by crack busts and stabbings.
Risen from a house where the amps must be cranked up high to be heard over the warthog snorts of 18 wheelers barreling down their street and the screeching tires and pulsing stereos of bondo smeared Mustangs.
Risen from a street full of loud-mouthed drunks taking their clumsy, evening constitutionals.
"...a blistering set of straight-ahead heavy rock tracks played with no shortage of hellfire".
-Guerilla Magazine, Tony Martins.
Ottawa's Best punk/metal/hard rock band
-Ottawa XPress,
