FEAR ZERO's new EP, "Concentrated," mixed by Darren Grahn (Metallica, Nickelback) showcases hook-filled rock songs with elements of garage and modern pop rock. Blazing guitar riffs, feel-good grooves and thoughtful lyrics combine to make a sound that is "catchy, heavy, melodic, stick-in-your-head music" [XFM]. Having already produced two Canadian rock radio hits and shared the stage with illuminaries like Randy Bachman, Stabilo, and High Holy Days, Fear Zero is well worth checking out live!

THE NEXT T-SHIRT are a three piece Vancouver-based rock band with great music and a powerful live show. Singer/guitarist Scott Valentine blends emotion and honesty, using his fears, beliefs and hopes to enlighten and inspire. His superb narrative skills and unique guitar style combine with the band's melodic bass and dynamic drums to produce an astonishingly large, wildly distinctive sound.

RYAN McMAHON's latest infectious rock offering, the full-length CD "Better Days Gone By," builds on a career that's already seen the talented singer/songwriter share the stage with the likes of Wide Mouth Mason, Holly McNarland, Bif Naked and Nickelback. Noted for his stellar work with previous buzz bands Citizen Strange and the Dirty Five, Ryan's dynamic, genuine personality and flair combined with his unique emotional style have gathered him an enviable group of peers and contemporaries, several of whom are featured on his newest record. Fans of honest Canadian rock'n'roots music will definitely find themselves a kindred spirit.

TARL is a talented singer/songwriter/guitarist who plays charming acoustic pop. Former frontman for the successful rock band Sam, Tarl has had the privilege of Canadian tours, movie and videogame soundtrack placements, opening spots with Finger Eleven, Nickelback and Default, and two full length CDs that have sold a combined total of more than 4000 copies. With a flair for entertaining and a voice that captures, Tarl's interactive performances deliver fun and passion.
