Return of the Stern :: East
Returning to Avant-Garde for a night of groove music. For fans of funky music, this' the eastern sibling of Return of the Stern. For 6 years the band has been playing playing funky instrumental music and serving as the backing band for several local artists in and around Vancouver. It was and still is pretty slick. But founder/drummer Adam moved east - so we've opened a second branch.

Fun Fact
In a large mixing bowl combine one chunk of funk with a pinch of blues, a dash of jazz and a heaping tablespoon of BASS. Whisk in a generous portion of groove and let it marinate in your favorite beverage overnight. Preheat your oven to 420 degrees and stick that sucker in there! Fun Fact is an aural dish best served loud.
The Budds
A few guys with blue eyes making party music for girls and boys.

Seb Ciel
Seb Ciel is a singer-songwriter and pianist from Ottawa. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Tom Waits, Ben Folds, and Queen, Seb sings passionate and jazzy melodies about love, loss, and life.
Matt Noyes
"Would you come back if you could?’ He shouts with that certain drawl we Canadians are so familiar with. Much like an accent, The Ottawa Native's musical genus has been sculpted over time by his surroundings. Countless hours at the rink, in the pub and on the road with his friends have inspired a collection of powerful compositions. After the better part of four years spent writing, arranging and recording, we are left with this brainchild of quintessential Canadian storytelling."

Josh Charbot Band
"Life During Wartime" is the ten track sophomore record by independent Ottawa indie rock solo artist Josh Charbot. Written, recorded and self produced at home with the help of Luke Labbe, Isaac Isenor and Jacob Macpherson on drums, the album explores new musical territory after 2014's folksy Ordinary People. A cohesive collection of 80s tinged heartland rock with dues paid in full to contemporary influences such as Ryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen, the record reflects on the political landscape of modern times through its impact on the individual and their role in society.
Bryce Jardine
Bryce Jardine is an indie roots singer/songwriter from Toronto, whose latest album, "The Kids Are Gone" features Serena Ryder, and members of The Beauties and City And Colour. His songs are moody, passionate, and real, ranging from the quiet and reflective to full-blown joy. Bryce is currently working on a new album with his band The Parlour Birds at Hawksleytown Studios.
Halfcocked & Lonesome

No pop-country, no bro-country, no folk-country...pure honky tonk songs.
Derek Harrsion
Original finger-style folk songs, lyrical traveling music, and sometimes other things.
