Brett Dennen

Brett’s 2006 release, So Much More, officially launched him as a discovery artist and drew frequent comparisons to troubadours like Paul Simon and Tom Petty.

The Deep Dark Woods (Roots/Folk Rock/Country)

The timeless sound of the aptly named "The Deep Dark Woods" belongs to the depressing winters of the north. Pulsing with human warmth, these original songs echo through the lonesome night. Ryan Boldt's plainspoken lyrics offer a strong but gentle tone which understates poetry, oftentimes as startling as hot blood in fresh snow. Despite the dark the... more info

If there was one rule for longtime friends and collaborators Jon Middleton (gui... more info

Said the Whale

Said The Whale formed in 2007 as a collaboration between songwriters Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. The pair's debut EP, Taking Abalonia, featured sunny west coast indie pop, with breezy harmonies, shimmering guitars, and lyrical tributes to their home city of Vancouver.

Hannah Georgas

Trumping the name of her critically adored debut album, Hannah Georgas has had a better than “Good” year since releasing her debut This Is Good in April, 2010. This Is Good, produced by Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother) and Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, You Say Party, New Pornographers), displays a montage of a self-assured singer-songwriter... more info
