His most recent CD release , "Hallucinations" is an expansive genre-bending work that features straight-up indie rock along with dark experimental tracks, roots and electronic sounds, twisting through genres while guided by Rio's honest lyrics and confident but understated vocal approach. http://www.steverio.ca

AU4 - Vancouver-based electronic ensemble AU4 (pronounced Oh-Four) write music that explores and celebrates the endless forces that shape and bind us in an uplifting, ethereal trip through the rhythms of nature and the nature of dreams, mixing blissed-out ambience with melodic, fairytale songs. Drawing from trip-hop, ambient and dreampop styles, AU4 features the haunting vocals of Ben Wylie, who scripted the band's fantastical stories of love and life. http://www.au4-audio.com

EDMUND play intelligent rock/pop music inspired by artists like The Beatles, The Cure, Radiohead, The Smiths, Death Cab and David Bowie. Come listen to stellar tunes from "Behave", their recent debut CD release! http://www.myspace.com/edmundband

CONRAD - Veering from hook-filled indie rock to swirling dream pop, Conrad's alt-pop-twang is atmospheric and poetic. Their lyrics deal with revolutionaries and love, moving from personal introspection to the current political landscape with edgy ease. Comprised of singer/songwriter Larry Lechner, guitarist Mark Eddy, Adrian Popple on bass, vocals and keyboards, and Marc L'Esperance on drums, Conrad delivers "richly textured jangly pop" (Queue Magazine) http://www.conradmusic.com
