The Glorious Sons are an everyman band, telling real stories from a blue-collar perspective. They hit their stride with their debut album, “The Union”, a collection of honest and heartfelt songs touching on themes of life, love, passion, loss and redemption.
Hawksley Workman is not afraid to be strange. After over a decade in the business, this hyper-prolific, perpetually restless creative force continues to push the boundaries of experience and the heights of his successes well outside the comfort zone.
Victoria BC's Jesse Roper is magnetic. With an explosive live show, the genuine quality and charisma of his versatile blues rooted soul, rock and country funk is as approachable as his charm.
Gordie Johnson and his Rasta brethren churn out their unique blend of roots-rock-reggae with double neck guitars and dreadlocks flying through the air. BIG SUGAR continues to live up their reputation for thundering live performances spiced with epic dub excursions that keep crowds grooving.
Rich Aucoin (from Halifax, Nova Scotia) and the musical mastermind he has become known for, is a hard subject to condense. As an artist, he is consistently engaged in creative mayhem that is embodied by numerous different projects, but chooses to focus on his part indie-rock/ part experimental symphonic-pop solo career.
Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie–a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he’s been making music under the name Bahamas–writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles.

Never one to rest on his laurels or do what’s expected of him, Dan Mangan has, yet again, transformed his sound. His latest release Club Meds, released in 2015 by Arts & Crafts, is a departure, both sonically and thematically.
Get those cowboy boots out of the closet – it’s time for a PARTY! 2012 CCMA Single of the Year winner Jason Blaine, 2013 & 2014 CCMA Rising Star Nominee Tebey and Grammy nominated James Otto are teaming up for a party like no other.
“Mysticssippi” blues man Harry Manx has been called an “essential link” between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. He has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to.
Canada’s Current Swell announce a cross Canada tour starting in Hamilton, ON on November 3 at Casbah and wrapping on December 12 in Edmonton, AB. Their raucous live show has earned the band scores of fans across the Americas, Australia and Europe.
