Greg Mashinter
Stemming from Stouffville, Greg Mashinter is quickly building roots throughout the GTA. Mashinter is carving new grounds of folk music with a powerful edge - tuning his restlessness into refined self-evaluation.
His writing is relentless and his passion is unwavering. The songs are simultaneously universal and fresh - ringing catharsis and renewal as he plays throughout Ontario. Mashinter's voice is honest and carrying, implying a head in the clouds while his feet are still touching the ground.
Whether he is playing music, taking in local acts or turning over rocks and making sense of what's underneath, Mashinter is finding home wherever he goes.
Tariq Anwar
Born and raised in Ottawa, solo singer/songwriter, heavily influenced by early 90"s Seattle grunge and Canadian artists like The Tragically Hip, Hayden, The Headstones and Neil Young, Tariq"s original material does not easily fall under any single genre.

Marutyri is an in Rotterdam based, instrumental fusion band. The deep and solid grooves, intense harmonies, story telling solo's and the well arranged parts, make Marutyri unique in the today's music world and the tougher-than-ever music business.
"Marutyri is a band full of energy, ideas and talent and could well become a mainstay of the festival circuit. One to watch for."
Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
" The build-up is almost 'symphonic' indeed, with a beginning and an end, with clear parts in the middle and which are not repeated in the composition. Impressive".
Jan Piet Hartman, Jazznu.co
"Alternately, musically compelling and equipped with its own identity, Marutyri on 'Inner Movements' sounds like a well oiled collective for which a bright future in play".
Erno Elsinga, Jazzenzo
Sammy Duke
You'd never be able to mistake Sammy Duke for anyone else once he starts performing onstage – he's the gentle giant playing upwards of eight instruments at the same time!
The friendly, unstoppable one-man-band that is Samuel "Sammy Duke" Dlugokecki is proficient at 13 musical instruments, and is a master of the cajon hand drum. As a solo artist, he simultaneously plays guitar, sings, beats on a drum, plays bass synthesizer pedals with his foot, plays percussion with his other foot, and an occasionally liberated hand – or elbow, as in the case of his famed "elbow chimes." Even in one of his other steady gigs, as a chosen sideman for Alysha Brilla, Sammy plays bass, cajon, shakers, and tambourine, all while singing harmony.
No wonder Velvet Rope magazine called him an "amazing and diversified talent," while The Ontarion celebrated his "indomitable stage presence." Coral Andrews of 98.5 FM CKWR says, "His lyrically thoughtful world-folk-rock fusion sound… is similar to the soft-voiced spiritual richness of Craig Cardiff and Bruce Cockburn, melded with the breathy vocals of late father-son songsmiths Tim and Jeff Buckley."
