THE HERMIT - Electronic, organic and fully engaging, The Hermit is the creation of electronic explorer Hamish Thomson. Their sound combines technology with traditional instruments on a voyage through new musical landscapes without borders, fronted by the sensual vocals of Paula Toledo. Unconventional sounds originating from a curious collection of objects -- toaster oven, vintage air organ, distorted effects pedals -- combine with real live drums, adding a texture and richness not typically found in electronic-based music. Epic sounds mesh with sublime harmonic resonances and trance-inducing visuals to produce a unique and vivid sensory experience. http://www.hermitmusic.com

ROSS VEGAS - Few bands can blend melody, groove and mood like Ross Vegas. Formed in 2002 by frontman Tim Bourchier, the Vancouver-based group has toured extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest, and recently released their debut album "Flow". Meshing resonant vocals, pulsing rhythms, and soulful ambience, the result is a sound that is cooly grooving with a nice touch of grit around the edges. http://www.rossvegasmusic.com

You may have seen her playing keyboards with Lily Frost, Adrienne Pierce, Bocephus King, The Vincent Black Shadow or sharing the stage with artists like Nickelback, John Mayer, Hawksley Workman, Default, and Emm Gryner. http://www.maryancheta.com
