FIRST TIME VICTOR - Influenced by Mr Cyclopede, quantum physics, Captain Caveman, coconuts, First Time Victor distills a brand new mix of grooves, resulting in a Jambalaya of original sound that has the crowds on their feet, dancing wildly to their bouncy Afro-Caribbean grooves! http://www.myspace.com/firsttimevictor

MATTHEW MEI & YOU BRIGHT MINDS - Having traveled the world as the son of a preacher man, Matt's initial introduction to the world of music was his dads classical, old blues and folk records, but it was his struggles in life and his soulful growth that fueled his desire to write emotional and heartfelt songs. Matt teamed up with Jonathan Anderson (Jonathan Inc.) at Buena Vista Studios to create a thoughtful album that showcased some of his favorite songs he had written over the years. Joined by his band, You Bright Minds, Matthew and the band deliver solid up-tempo bluesy rock'n'roll, that has a few visits from groove based hiphop and on the blues end, serves up sweet country rock influenced slide guitar licks with soulful vocals. http://www.matthewmei.com

LISA JOYCE PARRY's stripped down approach has its roots in her love of beat poetry, mod music & fashion, old school country crooners, kick-ass rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock, and all things East Van! Mixed with her love of vintage guitars, red wine, kitty cats, Morocco, India & pretty dresses, her style approaches an emotionally charged, uniquely-vibed style that she can call her own. http://www.myspace.com/lisalalapo

The SUMNER BROTHERS have garnered an incredible amount of attention in the short amount of time they have been a duo. Mixing originals and covers into a laid-back country-Delta-blues-roots blender, they float between traditional country, blues and folk, with a dash of bluegrass thrown in, making for a very tasty musical recipe. Described as "Old Crow Medicine Show meets the White Stripes", their rockin, foot stompin, rustic-roots sound has been favourably compared to Stompin Tom and Johnny Cash. Come out and see why Samantha Parton of The Be Good Tanyas calls them her "new favorite band". http://www.thesumnerbrothers.com
