Mariel Buckley - Her candor and magnetic live show have been charming listeners across North America since her debut LP, Driving In The Dark . Now with thousands of miles under her belt, Buckley looks to turn country/folk music on its head, with her follow-up album, Everywhere I Used To Be . Anchored by the haunting whine of the pedal steel, rounded out by heavy synth pads and produced by Marcus Paquin (The Weather Station, The Barr Brothers, Arcade Fire, The National), the resulting collection is a driving, swooning, toe-tapping catharsis; sealed and delivered by Buckley’s signature crooning brand of angst-ridden alt-folk.
T. Buckley - T. Buckley stands quietly among a disappearing ilk of true craftsmen. Shadowed by his Western roots, his soul and voice are unmistakably genuine, and the result is a class of songsmith long revered and scarcely achieved. After numerous accolades, releasing an EP and 3 full length albums fronting the T. Buckley Trio (2008-2018), Buckley continues to build momentum, turning towards his songwriting roots and rediscovering his solo artist ambitions over the last five years. Buckley’s second solo album, Frame By Frame, released November 5, 2021 via Fallen Tree Records, was recorded in the winter of 2020 at the National Music Centre in Calgary, Alberta. Frame By Frame, explains a lot of what we are all searching for as we meander through our days; wondering who’s on our side, who’s listening and who loves us. Life is a loaded question and with Buckley's sonic snapshots, as the old Faces song goes, “every picture tells a story, don’t it?”
Ari Neufeld - Ari Neufeld is a creative. If it can be made with the human body, he’s probably figuring out how to make it. Music. Art. Rhythm. Melody. Rhyme. Visual innovation and diversity, he bides most of his year traveling and being creative!
