HOT PANDA is a deluge of raw punk rock energy wrapped in a thick layer of psychedelia, a tornado of fuzzed out guitars and swirling, squealing delays. Drawing influence from jangly lo-fi indie pop, atmospheric jam bands, 90s power rock, The Beatles and Radiohead, they've released three critically acclaimed full length albums since signing to Mint Records in 2008.

The FAST ROMANTICS have adventured their way through the backcountry of Canadian indie rock, often attempting to straddle that hazy intersection at the corner of pop and rock n' roll. Their music has found its way onto many TV shows and films including Shameless, Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

MISE EN SCENE - Substance. Sincerity. Swagger. Reverb. From the stage, Mise En Scene exudes an undeniable energy that commands attention and can instantly ensnare an idle pair of ears. Their music is captivating, clamorous and organic, with hints of everything from ‘60s pop and alt-country to early punk and garage rock.

JOYCE ISLAND - Wowing audiences with her raw, emotionally charged vocals and charismatic live shows since 2007, Lisa Joyce has had the pleasure of singing with Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and headlining Vancouver's 2012 Fringe Festival. Her songs are reminiscent of old traditionals with a modern spin, channeling the classic instrumental energies of artists like Neil Young, Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac with rich guitar tones and bluesy psychedelia.
