Grown Up Avenger Stuff
Hard indie rock from Charlotte, North Carolina that has the wild fun energy of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs with the dark intensity of Queens of the Stone Age. The band is made up of guitarist John Thomsen and his 2 sons, Hunter (bass) and Tyler (Drums) with Ray Stern (Ontario born) as a new addition on vocals. The sound comes from the unique histories of the GUAS band members. John's years of pure rock guitar work, combined with Tyler and Hunter's gospel roots playing in church every week starting at twelve years old, and finally with the true electronic punk rock roots realized by Ray as she toured the clubs of Southwestern Ontario with her wild and quirky live show antics. Each is a multi-instrumentalist and their love of many music styles brings uniqueness to an effortless, exhilarating rock and roll energy.
Eddie Paul
With what's becoming an unmistakable Eddie Paul sound, PANDA-MONIUM is a fluent journey of an album that straddles multiples sounds and genres. From Lead single The Warning Song, the sleazy, acid rock of Hands In My Pockets, and the foot-stomping country hoedown of Dig A Hole, any one of the eleven tracks is potentially a single.
Paul is a poster boy of the new breed of artists coming out of Montreal, building a loyal and growing fan base. Rapidly benefiting from numerous positive reviews of his live performances across Canada, as well as having Dutch and German tours under his belt already, Eddie's riding a surge of worldwide momentum.

He is an active member of the Canadian East Coast music scene through the release of his own albums, appearing as guest vocalist on a large number of recordings by other artists, hosting a weekly radio show, writing a weekly column, and producing beats for other musicians.
Some of Dangerously's other notable moments include providing guest vocals on MC Frontalot's albums Nerdcore Rising and Final Boss, opening for K'Naan at the Halifax Pop Explosion, and being a top-6 finalist in a Napster-sponsored writing/rapping competition judged by Chuck D in 1999. He appeared on the MuchMusic program Going Coastal on March 19, 2006, was used by MTV Canada's MTV Live as a rapping correspondent to describe the history of nerdcore and has been featured on the CBC Radio program Atlantic Airwaves as well as many programmes on CBC Radio 3.

Jessica Pearson and the East Wind's dynamic live shows take you on a journey through their lives with heart warming harmonies, the liveliness of maritime kitchen parties, and intimate traditional melodies.
Terry Fernihough
I'm a songwriter from Ottawa, Ontario. That's in Canada. It's a long way from Nashville. So what's a writer to do? Moving isn't an option. I'm working from the outside, trying to find my own way in an industry that is very focused on Nashville. I've managed to get several songs cut with a country artist in the UK, and I've had several holds here in Canada. I've also been writing with some of Canada's finest up and coming artists, and with writers who I deeply respect.
Jessie Treneer
Jessie Treneer is a Canadian country musician on the rise. Her first single 'First Love Kinda Feeling' hits radio stations across Canada in 2016 with the release of her FACTOR funded album 'Reckless Heart'.

"Acid without the acid" is how Butterflies & Zebras were described by the Ottawa Citizen. B&Z are two guitarists and a percussionist who "paint in sound", originally inspired by the sonic tapestries of Jimi Hendrix but adding folk, free-jazz, blues and world music into the mix.
