CRIMINAL CATERPILLAR - Formerly known as Koro Kidinga, Criminal Caterpillar is a progressive art-rock group from the Lower Mainland. Inspired by bands ranging from The Mars Volta and Radiohead to King Crimson and Mr. Bungle, they are currently recording their debut "Thanatos And The Archangel", a 70 minute concept album. "Enough lyric and tempo changes to keep you occupied without losing the touches of prog that set them apart from boring old rock bands" - Backstage Vancouver

BARNABY JONES - No, it’s not an obscure '70s TV show revival, nor the handsome foil off Frisky Dingo, but Vancouver's own Barnaby Jones offers catchy, up-tempo melodic rock with elements of funk, soul and an inherent sense of humour. "Some local bands still have a ways to go, but Barnaby Jones has found it." - BC Local News

JORDAN CARRIER's blend of blistering rock and gorgeous acoustic songs has won him critical acclaim all over the province and opening spots for bands like Loverboy, The Odds, Marcy Playground and Wide Mouth Mason. This talented singer/songwriter and his band have been preparing the follow up to 2008's 'Absence Of Wonder', the album that launched the single "Club People" which was a hit on CFOX and placed the band atop the 2008 Vancouver Seeds contest. His songs are catchy as hell, revealing a versatile musician who can swing effortlessly between dancy acoustic grooves, block-rocking beats, Motown guitar rock, Radiohead-ish melancholy, beautiful acoustic numbers and superb covers.

The NICHE is an original modern classic guitar rock band that mixes elements of blues, jazz, funk and old time rock n roll sweetened with keyboards and occasional saxophone. Formed in 2010 by former members of Kick The Ashes, they are currently recording their debut EP.
