BRIAN O'BRIEN
http://brianobrienmusic.com/

Through his musical career, Brian has explored many different genres of music, all of which have served him well in creating his own unique sound.

This sound comes down to the amalgamation of three specific styles. They are ingredients, they blend to create what is ultimately Brian's unique recipe for song.
The most prominent of these ingredients is his darker take on North American Folk.
He works with gritty and abrasive vocal tones that add a timelessness to his voice.
Secondly, Brian uses warmer tones in his vocals coupled with ornamentation inherent to that of classic R&B. It is here where he smoothens the edges of his folk sound. His grit immediately becomes more palatable.
Finally, Brian draws great inspiration and style from the Irish ballad, Brian shapes his writings tightly around the structure and word play of old Irish lamentations.

Brian O'Brien has currently been preparing for the release of his EP 'Songs written in Canada' since winning the 2015 Landmark Events Artist Showcase Competition.
He will be performing through interior B.C. and Alberta this Spring 2017 with the 'Neck of the Woods' Tour. He also plans to travel back to his native Ireland to perform in celebration of his new EP release this July 2017. Late Summer/Fall show details to be announced

MARK ADAMS

Mark is a Canadian and Australian singer-songwriter with a knack for writing ear-worm melodies and heartfelt lyrics. His ‘Assistant Editor Song’ demo trended on film industry blogs around the world in 2015 with its comedic insight into his job as an “AE”. He'll be performing with his band.

BAD STRANGERS

If Jack Johnson and Stevie Nicks formed a band, it would probably sound like Bad Strangers.
Cassidy and Cory are known for their epic harmonies, catchy melodies and powerful songwriting delivered passionately by two lead vocalists who seem to effortlessly follow each other’s instincts. Their chemistry is undeniably magnetic. From vulnerable tearjerkers, to angsty rock tunes, their authenticity is palpable. Their highly personal songs and performance let you into their lives, where they tackle personal struggles and navigate being couple who also collaborate creatively. Their overall sincerity and willingness to let it all out on stage will leave a lasting impression; a warm feeling to take home with you.
