DARKBLUEWORLD - With unusual rhythmic textures and an uncompromising approach to music, DarkBlueWorld constructs songs that are direct yet sophisticated in their lyrical and musical conception, speaking with courage and conviction. Often acerbic and darkly satirical, DarkBlueWorld's music is emotionally layered with subtly complex harmonic and rhythmic turns, combining artful simplicity, originality and inherent beauty. Their culturally engaged, profoundly melancholic songs intelligently communicate the complexities of human experience, "visceral and enraged and yet with tenderness and naked vulnerability."

MARNIE MAINS - When her boyfriend refused to teach her to play guitar, Marnie Mains broke up with him and taught herself.

Like free healthcare. And total, yet so very ethically ... more info

Marnie Mains

Marnie Mains is a Vancouver musician. About 5 years ago she started plucking away at the guitar and found that she couldn't stop. She has a maturity that far exceeds her years, yet a playful demeanor and sex appeal that mock it. Her alluring stage presence thought provoking lyrics and non-formulaic chord progressions put this woman in a category of... more info

Tarran the Tailor

With a banjo in one hand and a beatbox in the other, like a strange arabian bluesman enticing a video game to dance, Tarran the tailor saunters a slow tango through a forest of scrikety scratches, coming out the other side, with a rose between his teeth. more info
