Brian Maxwell (vocals & guitar),
Alex Lakusta (bass),

Trees began as an instrumental three piece. Alex and Andrew Gelok, with Alex Johnstone, created a sound that combined their love of post-rock and effect-driven guitar.

With strong roots in Canada's capital, Trees are something new, and destined to grow.

Stand Up and Say No
For Andre Nault, walking away from music was what ultimately uncovered its appeal and rewards. In 2011, frustrated by a reported lack of interest in his work, Nault sold off his instruments save for a single guitar, which he used to start writing jingles. Before long, Nault had placed those jingles in a series of popular car commercials and, inspired by his good fortune, formed the indie-rock group Stand Up and Say No shortly after.
Drawing inspiration from New York City post-punk acts like The Strokes and Interpol, the group has four releases to its name thus far – 2013's self-titled effort, 2014's Assuming Loyal EP, and a pair from 2016: The Fawn EP and Machines and Museums.
Stand Up and Say No's energetic, infectious brand of rock is undeniably potent. Bigger things could be in store for the band.

Born and raised near Albany, NY, C.K. Flach is an artist determined to make a difference through songs and poetry.
Focusing on the turmoil of the times, C.K. prepared nine songs and one poem for the album that speak of modern day issues such as politics, racism, division and corruption by telling stories of love, loss, heartache and salvation. Rooted in Americana, Flach cultivates an indie rock sound that acts as the vessel to carry his message. One he delivers with a voice that ranges from dark to inspiring.
Gary Edward Allen
I am a singer songwriter living in Toronto via Vancouver..... I play a psychedelic folk neo classical style of rock and roll. It's all rock and roll.
Eric Sorensen
"When the heart overflows, it comes out the mouth." – Proverb
This proverb certainly holds true for Eric Sorenson, the singer-songwriter behind the band G3NERIC, whose original folk rock songs are at times dark and other times uplifting. A melancholic optimist, Sorenson believes that everyone can face their own personal demons and transform them into something positive, and that music is an important part of that process. Drawing his inspiration from the human condition, Eric crafts songs that tug at the heartstrings and feed the soul, shining a melodic light on the darkness within each of us.
