Lisa LeBlanc

Twenty-six year old New Brunswick cum Montrealer Lisa LeBlanc has become known for both her trash folk performances as well as the heartbreaking tales of love, friendship and heartbreak she pens. 

It’s been said that she has the sharp wit of Courtney Barnett, the rambling honesty of Bob Dylan and the high-flying sincerity of Dolly Parton.

JP Hoe

This Winnipeg-based songwriter is a dyed-in-the-wool troubadour with a big, bold, blue-sky voice, that’s grown out of hundreds of days on the road. Hoe connects with his audiences via his soul-on-sleeve lyrics and engaging performances.

Royal Wood

The best way to describe Royal Wood’s music has proven to be by his name alone. He plays Royal Wood music.

Skye Wallace

Skye Wallace is what happens when a classically trained singer with east coast roots discovers punk rock in her youth and then writes visceral folk music. Her voice and sound, accompanied by her full band, is a force to be reckoned with.
