River Delta is a young Canadian trio consisting of James Ferguson, David Julé, and Taylor Pawsey. After releasing an EP under the name 'James Stuart Ferguson', they've decided to move forward in a new, explorative musical direction.

MATT BLAIS (Calgary, AB)
Powerful vocals, electrifying harmonica, and emotive performances are the characteristics that have made Matt Blais an artist of high regard. With the ability to enthrall audiences as a solo performer or thrill them with his band, the charismatic Blais expands the Canadiana genre by sharpening the edges of rock, blues, and folk. He is at home on stage, with many tours, festivals, and performances in Canada and countries around the world. Sharing the stage with some of Canada’s biggest acts like Blue Rodeo, The Trews, and The Strumbellas, (to name a few), has helped shape Blais into a consummate showman. Matt’s independently released recordings have garnered critical acclaim, sold thousands of copies, led to a collaboration with Sam Roberts, and earned him multiple awards such as "The Great American Song Contest” in 2016. His proudest accomplishment, however, is the lasting relationship he has with his fans. Having almost frozen to death when the tour van broke down in northern Canada to dragging his guitar through the Australian outback, Matt Blais is a dedicated troubadour in search of authentic experiences. He is living proof that hard work and honest artistry are present in today’s world and still desired by music lovers.

Porteau is an indie folk band led by Victoria Williams and Craig Stevenson. The duo began writing songs while living in Montreal, daydreaming of summer drives on the Sea to Sky highway. They have begun recording their debut album, Water’s Gate, a thematic collection of songs revolving around ancient mythology set against a backdrop of the West Coast landscape, set for release in the spring of 2018. Porteau fuses their background in jazz with folk music, electronic elements and open soundscapes to create an expressive and unmapped style.
