Caleb Hart (Tobago, W.I. / Salt Spring Island, BC)

No matter how many changes the music industry experiences, the one thing that always remains, is the power of a passionate live show. Caleb Hart has the ability to bring something fresh, honest and powerful every time he steps on a stage.

A natural born performer since he was a young boy growing up in Trinidad & Tobago; Hart has been taking his music across Canada and around the world to The Caribbean, Australia, USA and New Zealand full time since 2012. Along with racking up well over 850 shows in that time, he has also released 5 records, 13 singles, and won prestigious awards from Edmonton Folk Fest, the Western Canadian Music Awards and more. However, all of the sales, stats and awards are just the background to Hart’s mission to spread songs of hope and unity wherever he goes. Whether touring with a band or as a solo performer, Hart carries a singular ability to bring the audience together for the show and beyond.
“I have never met another performer as talented or dedicated to his craft as Caleb Hart. A true musical craftsman and lyricist!” • Leo Cripps - Calgary International Reggae Festival
After seeing Caleb Hart open for Damian Marley at the Commodore Ballroom, Brianna Ferguson of Vancouver Weekly had this to say: “Though Hart’s lyrics strayed into the profound, with heartfelt choruses like ‘we don’t wanna live this way anymore,’ the mood never dipped. Within seconds of taking the stage Hart brought the whole room to its feet.”

DJ Dubconscious (Toronto, ON / Nelson, BC) has come to represent both the east and the western coast of Canada. Born in Toronto and raised on the jungle / drum’n’bass sounds permeating the city in the late 90s & early 2000s, he developed a taste for hard beats drenched in reggae vibes. 2004 brought a big move across the country to the city of Victoria, which was nurturing a fledgling breaks and jungle scene – by the end of his first year of University, he had bought his first set of Technics and the seed was planted. Bouncing back and forth between Toronto and Victoria for the next three years of school presented plenty of opportunities to play different music to new crowds, adding reggae & dancehall to his repertoire, as well dubstep – in its infancy at this point. After school the move was made back east, joining up with the Dubslingers crew in Toronto, while they were holding down Canada’s longest running dubstep weekly - Dubslingers Wednesdays at Thymeless.
