Frank Yamma

Frank Yamma is regarded by many as one of Australia’s most significant Indigenous songwriters and performers. An initiated Pitjantjatjara man from Australia's central desert, he sings in his native language and English. His mighty songs, magical guitar playing and deeply arresting voice are spine tingling.

“He’s from the central desert and is the kind of singer-songwriter who can lead us out of the wilderness. All of us. Multilingual, an incredibly skilled guitarist of great musicality... Honest to the point of brutality, he tells it precisely as it is, in the most heart-rending possible way. If ‘She Cried’ can’t move you to tears, your lachrymal profusion may’ve dried up for good; if desiccation persists, seek medical advice. His is a soul laid bare.” CRIKEY MAGAZINE

Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar

Bubbling up from the cauldron of roots Americana music, Samantha Martin is an artist of extraordinary power, gravitas and deep-seated emotion. On first listen, one is immediately struck by the awesome presence and sheer magnitude of her other worldly voice. Cigarette-ravaged and whiskey-soaked in the extreme, Martin’s pipes are capable of conveying an infinite range of emotions, bringing one to tears in one instance and in the next uplifting one’s soul with an empowered declaration of hope, faith and desire.

Born in Edmonton, Martin first discovered the power of her voice in Grade 4 while auditioning for a role in a class production of The Sound of Music, belting out Rogers and Hammerstein’s “My Favorite Things.” When her music teacher got excited and brought other teachers in to see the effect of the young dynamo’s pipes, Martin knew she had something special going on. A couple of years earlier, her father had bought her an acoustic guitar, getting her started by showing her a few chords and a basic boogie shuffle.

Raghu Lokanathan

Raghu is a thin, bearded, bespectacled man who will smile if you look at him. Almost a decade ago, he came to Prince George on the run, to live in the care of his brother, a daydreaming surgeon. Raghu’s latest experiment in the countryside of Nova Scotia had led him to conclude that he was not cut out to be a farmer. He was relieved to find that all he had left were the songs he’d made, and a drive to keep making more.

So he wrote and wrote and wrote songs, better than any he had ever written before; clever, sympathetic songs that showed a dark, and darkly humorous, edge. He played some great concerts and by the time he released his album Caledonia, everyone could see he was headed for bigger things. His songs were played and regularly requested on CBC programs like the Vinyl Café and Richardson’s Roundup, whose host Bill Richardson said the song “Ramona” was “genius”. Raghu was asked to play at the Vancouver folk festival, where the late Utah Phillips heard him, and said that Raghu “writes songs like they used to a long time ago.” He toured across the country. Other artists began covering his songs. He wrote and wrote and wrote brilliant new songs, grittier than before, with radical experiments in song structure and point-of-view that always sounded natural, even inevitable.

Five Alarm Funk

Hot, sweaty dance floors with feet stomping and every body moving. Grooves for days. Monster horns and shredding psych-rock guitars. Oh, and giant killer robots. Let’s not forget about those. The Vancouver-based band is nine men strong and over a decade deep into a career that has seen it release five acclaimed albums and burn up stages across the country on four national tours. And this vehicle isn’t about to slow down. In fact, Five Alarm Funk is just picking up steam. Don’t be fooled by the name: there’s more to Five Alarm Funk than, well, funk. Although they are rooted in the style that gives the outfit its name, the bandmates thrive on being able to transcend that genre by seamlessly mixing in elements of Gypsy rock, Latin music, ska, and even prog-metal.

Kym Gouchie

I was born into music and have been singing my whole life, even when I sang out of key in my younger years I never gave up. I really got into music in my 20's when karaoke was the trend and I kept winning contests. In my 30's I started collaborating with musicians and started doing live performances and began loving the stage. In 2006 and in my 40's I was discovered by Sandy Scofield and joined her Indigenous women's trio called 'Iskwew' meaning 'women' in the cree language, and that is when my music career was born. We traveled internationally representing Canada at Indigenous Music Festivals in Mexico and France. We also did the ArtStarts School Tours throughout BC and performed at numerous music festivals and cultural gatherings nationally. I left Iskwew in 2008 and ventured out on my own. I fronted a couple of bands in the Okanagan from 2009-2012 and continued to play festivals and cultural gatherings as a solo artist.

In 2013, I experienced a series of personal crisis' which resulted in me writing a bunch of songs. In 2014, I wrote a proposal and received a music grant which allowed me to record my first EP titled 'Mountain of Youth'. Now here we are in 2016 and I have committed myself to music full time. I am in love with my new life and am enjoying traveling and sharing my story and songs with everyone. I just finished recording a brand new single titled 'A Long Way From Here', a song in honour of the Murdered & Missing Aboriginal Women & Girls. It will be released on vinyl and will be available to download in early April 2016 then we start recording a brand new album.

Red Haven

When Red Haven’s Brendan Steele and Jennifer Charters visited New Orleans in February 2014, they were struck by the spontaneity and simplicity expressed by the roving swing bands of Frenchman Street, stopping traffic every night of the week. They returned home with a notebook full of songs, and a concept for a band that would encompass the vitality of a New Orleans street party with the west-coast Canadian folk and indie music they were raised on. Long-time collaborator, songwriter Nathan Turner, picked up an upright bass, and the three began to hone their sound.

One year later, Red Haven's raucous, spirited brand of folk music received funding from FACTOR, and was featured on stages at folk music festivals such as Arts Wells, Quadrapalooza, Tiny Lights Festival, and Hootstock. Jesse Thom (Dirty Grace) accompanied the band on drums for a tour, and has since joined in the songwriting process. "While also a folk band, Red Haven’s sound is decidedly different,” says Carolyn Nikodym at the Fernie Fix, “it’s more whiskey soaked and vaudevillian – a perfect Monday evening pick-me-up. The trio, inspired by a trip to New Orleans, blends gypsy jazz and indie pop melodies.”

Milan Basic - Live Mural Painting

Milan Basic discovered art through graffiti in the late 1980’s. This led to portrait art, automotive airbrushing, graphic design and wall murals. After focusing primarily on walls, it was after much prodding that he try applying these images to canvas. Starting with spray paint on canvas, curiousity and experimentation led to a multitude of mixed media works. The original canvases were strongly graffiti inspired, which then evolved into photo-realism and naturally, surrealism. Evolution brought originality. Not wanting to regurgitate the usual selection, it was decided Milan would introduce all of his influences into his current productions. Using techniques learned from years in the film industry combined with styles taken from his many years of involvement in the graffiti culture and adding other ideas inspired by renaissance art and even anime art.

The Dirrty Show

Gliding your mind into the gutter one soaring harmony at a time, two sexually empowered women (Kayla Williams and Melody Stang) sing of ‘Double R-rated’ topics that are rarely brought to light and transform them into catchy morsels of melodic hilarity. Their slick riffs and quick wit spans across all genres, penning crowd favourites such as Queef Anthem, Finger in the Butt, Morning Wood and Ballad of the Tinderman. There is no innuendo here, to be blunt. “What many seem to appreciate about The Dirrty Show is the fact that they unapologetically throw the hardest-to-stomach aspects of sex in peoples faces, and through humour make it (at least somewhat) digestible.” – ‘Lure of the Lewd’ by Trevor Nichols, The Jasper Fitzhugh

The Dirrty Show wants to “f*ck you till you cream” and with that attitude the duo’s live performance synergy explodes with inappropriate banter, hilarious comedic spin on sexuality, ridiculous faces and alluring dance moves. Since 2011 they have rocked some of the top Comedy stages in Canada (Toronto Yuk Yuk’s Nubian Show, Edmonton Comedy Festival) and Australia (Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Comic’s Lounge) and more festivals and music venues than they can count on their ladyfingers.
