SECOND GUESS - Based in New Westminster, this upbeat pop/rock band is a healthy mix of talent and creativity not to mention tomfoolery, hyperactivity and friendship. Their brand new full-length album "Lovesick Colour" is being touted as their best yet, showcasing their charismatic music, haunting melodies and symbiotic songwriting abilities. Produced by Dan Swinimer (Superbeing, Beyond The Fall, Jet Black Stare), the new songs come to life displaying their true personality as a band. With airplay on independent radio stations across Canada and future success sure to follow, Second Guess fuses lightheartedness, teamwork and determination into the glue that holds them together.

HONEY AND THE MONEY (formerly MADISEN) With live shows that are always emotional, arresting and unforgettable, Honey and the Money combine lovely harmonies with great hooks and pop melodies, making music that is beautiful, delicate and dynamic. Having played to numerous sold out crowds, the band was invited to support award winning Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee on a recent string of U.S. tour dates. Their new CD delivers it all, from anthemic choruses to emotionally laced ballads filled with lush arrangements, strings and horn sections. Produced by Jared Kuemper (Sheryl Crow, Tegan and Sara), this is pop music at its best, full of hooks and stories, both musically and lyrically quenching.

PEDWELL - Brad Pedwell is a charismatic Vancouver-based singer/songwriter/guitarist who's been making an impact on the industry since 2002. His growing fanbase has seen him mature as a performer while not losing touch with his heart. With a fistful of emotions clutched in his hands, Pedwell engages listeners with an outstretched passion that is raw, vulnerable and satisfying. htp://
