TYRANAHORSE is a monster and monsters are good. Emerging on Pterodactyl Island, Tyranahorse is the best of human creation - the product of unbridled imagination, the dream of all dreams. When the beast was young she got hit and yelled at and learned to protect herself in self-destructive ways. When the beast was betrayed she had nowhere to turn and her loneliness was amplified. When the beast grew alone in isolation, she shed her invisible skin and became a monster of dreams.

The STRANGE MAGIC - Vancouver psychedelic collective The Strange Magic runs the gamut from sunkissed psych pop and juggernaut rock-outs to gossamer balladry and everything in between. Featuring members of The R.A.D.I.O., Panurge, The Awkward Stage and Blackout Lights, the band made its debut with a Japanese tour and has since shared the stage with such stellar acts as Os Mutantes, Pointed Sticks, Shonen Knife and Susan Jacks (Poppy Family).

PLACES WITH FACES ride with the currents, molding an adventurous path of discovery for the greater good. Their free-spirited music is inspired by Vancouver and the ocean, touching on ideas of truth, freedom and the vulnerability of life and love. Brought together by a string of fate, what was once an idea has now transformed into a full movement that portrays elements of beauty in their purest form. http://www/

PAUL GIBBONS - Staying true to his major British background of influences, you can hear Beatlesque melodic inspirations in Paul Gibbons' music, blasting out with the power of Britpop stadium thunder and iced with a touch of '80s new-wave grooves. His musical journey of deeper thoughts and emotions invokes a large soundscape of tones and feelings that tap into the "Maybe I'm Amazed" zone whilst ending with epic Floydian guitar solos.
