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.

DAN MANGAN is an engaging performer who combines intelligent lyrics and addictive guitar melodies with passion and raw emotion. The graveled sweetness of his voice is immediately recognizable and endearing, superbly supported by a highly talented backing band. Dan's latest release "Postcards and Daydreaming" is a fluid piece of work with diverse yet complementary grooves, styles and tones.

MARNIE MAINS - When her boyfriend refused to teach her to play guitar, Marnie Mains broke up with him and taught herself. Captivating audience with lyrics that bite and an angelic voice that soothes, her music falls somewhere between Mazzy Star and PJ Harvey, earning praise from Justin Timberlake's producer who described her as "mesmerizing, profound and a beautiful singer."
