Jimmy Pearson
It must be humble, sincere, crunchy and organic if it’s a song by Toronto Based Folk/Rock artist Jimmy Pearson. As a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy strives to connect to thoughtful audiences with songs that embrace the pathetic and awkward facets of life.
Blast From The Sun
Originating from Canada’s Capital – Ottawa, Blast From the Sun fuses traditional blues and 60’s inspired rock with elements with Funk, Latin, Jazz and Reggae to create an original and compelling sound. Blast From The Sun is comprised of front man/ singer/guitarist Justin Gunidon, Drummer Andrew Ferderber and Bassists Harrison Singer all of whom bring their own musical expertise and influence to the original compositions.
The band was formed in 2010 and since then has gained a reputation for their energetic live performances at local Ottawa venues as well as at prestigious venues across Canada. During 2016 the band was in the finals of The Ottawa Blues Society, Road to Memphis competition, completed their first cross-Canada tour and was signed on to London Gentleman Records.

Jul 22, Sat, 2017
Borrowing from the heavier-sounding, underground genres of their younger years, Mosely, keeps up the intense instrumentals and candid lyrics that are very prevalent in these genres, but kicks it up a notch with their massive atmospheric sound. Pairing beautiful, swooping vocals, with creative melodic leads and clever, yet fervent drumming - they will draw you in and make a believer out of you.
Maverick Cinema
Sanctuary, the five song debut of Vancouver Island Folk-Rockers Maverick Cinema, is an elegant harmony of loss, and acceptance. Written in a time of personal crossroads, Sanctuary takes you on a journey of sorrow, burden, growth, resolution, and ultimately that time always goes on, whether you want it to stop, or move faster. With emotional lyrics blended famously with foot stomping drum beats, and melodic guitars Sanctuary will grasp hold of you, and leave you wanting more. Giving the picture of vast British Columbian forests, and the fierce waves of the West Coast Maverick Cinema's first studio effort is truly a reflection of the place they call home.
