  2. Roses, aka Katie Sevigny - Folk/Pop/Country

    Katie Sevigny Whether you call it folk, pop, country or (emo) dare I say it, Roses is about romance, a collection of stories of love & death, celebration & calamity. Born in Montreal, the acoustic poet is sticking to what she does best, creating imagery with her words and chills with her voice. Currently gigging in Montreal and Toronto, and soon to release her debut EP this fall. "An intriguing cross between Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones. Her range is exquisite; her stage presence, stunning. The Kid is going to be a star." - Bill Brownstein (The Gazette). "The extent of her ability puts her in a wide writing comfort zone that ranges from the McLachlan-esque to much darker, exotically touched and impassioned places."-Jamie O'meara (Hour Magazine)

  4. Dan and Laura - Hyperliterate folk pop

    Dan CooperHaving met in a chemistry lab deep underground, Dan Cooper and Laura Cooper (curiously, no relation) quickly discovered their mutual love of things with strings and keys and bellows. Laura CooperAfter several non-musical years, they reunited and at the behest of a certain quasi-bearded bartender began to write music together. The result is a curiosity - poetic folk pop that eschews the typical subject matter, opting instead to focus on epic tales of pirate queens, the hardships of living through a volcanic winter in the year 1816, and snowball fights. With lofty melodies and ever-shifting instrumentation, this duo will grab you by the ears (but very tenderly).

  5. Bad Weather, a.k.a. Rough Draft
    downtempo hip hop / minimalist trip hop

    Bad Weather, a.k.a. Rough DraftBad Weather is Rough Draft (Hadi Adel)'s current solo project. Inspired by a lot things...from the temperature to the everyday struggle. Therapeutic and refreshing, ambient melodies flirt with chaotic story lines and draw a carefree landscape...with a twist of hip hop.

  6. SuperNova & TheBig RedGiants (SN'BRG)

    SuperNova & TheBig RedGiants SN'BRG is a montreal based band of 4 musicians, 3 of whom are singer/songwriters whose influences are rooted in blues, rock and folk.
