QUICKNESS - With a love of punk rock, hip hop, reggae, and dub, Quickness delivers radio rock in all its post-hardcore glory. Their distinctive sound is rounded out by soaring melodies, vigorous riffage and a funk-fueled rhythm section.

The BLUE BUS - Members of the Unknown Soldiers, Midnight Lightning and Heads Hang Heavy have conspired together to create a new musical ride that seems strangely familiar yet somehow alien. Some say it's blues, some say it's rock or urban folk... perhaps it's all three mixed together in a musical blender and seasoned with a dash of grit and grind and a hint of grunge. Judge for yourself and come take a ride on The Blue Bus!

The PROVINCIAL ARCHIVE - Fueled by a heartfelt roots/folk/pop sensibility, The Provincial Archive mixes synths, banjo, accordion and piano in a deceptively complex way that brings to mind the best elements of bands like The Decemberists and The Weakerthans. Emotional and lyrical, it's great Canadian storytelling with vivid lyrics that play out like a movie before your mind's eye.

JOYCE ISLAND - Lisa Joyce'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.
