Sarah Wheeler:
“One of Vancouver’s punchiest indie singers.”-Fish Griwkowsky Edmonton Sun
Sarah Wheeler is a dyed-in-the-wool singer songwriter. With the upcoming release of her third album, Out of the Woodwork, Sarah’s ambition is to present her songs in a direct and passionate way. Although she has enjoyed collaborating with other musicians, lending her vocals to recordings such as “A Small Wonder” by A.C. Newman of the New Pornographers, and sharing the stage with bands including the Be Good Tanyas, this Vancouver-based roots artist has remained focused on writing and performing her own music with vigilant integrity.
A guitar shredding skater from the prairies, Rob Malowany rolled into Vancouver’s music scene with plans and a passion to make them happen. Recording under the alias devilsplender, the bandleader/songwriter/producer has 6 full length albums to his credit. Hometown Riot (2009) is the latest. His concert experience rings through at every gig. Sharing bills with such rocking notables as The Dudes, Black Mountain and the legendary NoMeansNo as well as roots and blues mainstays such as the Lowest of the Low, the Bughouse 5 and Rodney DeCroo & The Convictions, the devilsplender show is varied as his influences.
"He spurts out carefully crafted chunks of alt-pop beauty through strange electro-acoustic experimentation. Using a bric-a-brac array of synths, computers, drums machines and fuzzed-out guitars, Bradley hopscotches from early day Beck to latter day Jay Reatard."
-The Vancouver Sun

After leaving former band The Organ and not touching any of her instruments for awhile, Debora Cohen decided "this is not quite right." It was time to put together a new project. Lovers Love Haters' self-titled EP underscores Cohen's original and haunting voice, driving beats and punchy sounds, and simplicity in the instruments' melodies. more info

bradley (Electro pop)

"Finally, a true fusion of electronic, acoustic, and traditional song writing techniques and the fascinatingly refreshing results they can achieve. bust it..." “This disc has a kind of dark electro Daniel Ash/Love & Rockets feel. Low bassy thuds carry much of the melody, crashing electro drums. It's ... more info
