Tim Isberg
Singer-Songwriter-Soldier with well crafted songs, great stage presence and unique life experiences he shares to make each listener feel connected.
Originally from southern Alberta, Tim is an accomplished singer-songwriter who is emerging in the performance scene after a lengthy hiatus from music to serve in the Canadian Army.
From Rwanda to Afghanistan, Tim had the privilege and real-life challenges over several years living and working in different cultures, international conflict zones and amid the best and worst humanity has to offer. As a performer, he entertained audiences in many corners of Europe, Africa, Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East and Levant. Many of his storyteller songs stem from these life adventures.
Hearts & Mines
Hearts & Mines is an Ottawa-based alternative group making a difference by making great music. Formed in 2009 by Matt Luloff (lead vocals, guitar) following his military service in Afghanistan, Hearts & Mines delivers powerful and emotionally charged songs that cut through the sonic clutter. The lyrical poetry of Luloff's songs is driven home by a full band including Jason Watts on drums and backing vocals, Rob Hanlon on bass and Michael Pineault on keys. Resilient, zealous and emotionally raw, Hearts & Mines strike a nerve with listeners, reminding them of the injustice of this world and pushing for change.

Misled Balds
Misled Balds is a thrash-core punk band from Tokyo Japan. Their music is strongly influenced by Propagandhi, Bigwig and Belvedere.
The band first formed in 2005, and since then their members have changed on 3 occasions. Despite this, their music style remained unaffected. During their early years their music could be compared to old school punk, but in the last 3 years their music has matured on a more technical level. Also, unlike most Japanese bands, Misled Balds' English does not suck. This is thanks to the vocalist who spent most of his teenage years in England.
In the Japanese music scene their music stands in a category of its own and has a close-knit and dedicated fan base. Some would say their music appeals to more of a foreign taste, and the 'Balds' have gained many fans from such countries like, Italy, France, Belgium, the US and Canada. Without a doubt their foreign fan base will continue to grow from their Canadian/American tour this spring.
They are not a band to be missed!
STONE LEEK is a punk,melodic hardcore band from Kyoto Prefecture, Japan.
Akira:guitar / vocal
Goat is a 3 piece punk/rock band based out of Ottawa ON. Goat was offically formed in the Fall of 2011 by guitar/vocalist Mike Mitani, bassist Paulie J Fox and drummer Mike Mayer.
