Lindsey Walker
Lindsey Walker looks at the dark side of love and life through a hopeful, hilarious and passionate lens. Her greatest joy is sharing music with folks across the country. Since 2011 Lindsey has toured extensively as a solo artist in Canada with half her heart in Alberta, and the other in her hometown of Winnipeg. In 2013 Lindsey was nominated as an "Artist to Watch" at the Edmonton music awards, which heralded her debut album Our Glory with a sold-out crowd. Fans began to respond to the raw honesty and soaring vocal power of her music. Blogs followed, and IndieGogo featured her as a success story for her innovative engagement strategies. Our Glory found a national audience receiving airplay on CBC, and college and community stations from Vancouver to Halifax. Her eagerly anticipated new record this desolate bliss. will release in the fall marking a bold new direction as Lindsey takes audiences on a cinematic apocalyptic journey through roots and rock. Songwriter, traveler, and lover of all creatures; this sincere, effervescent performer wants to share her bliss with you.

Yarns is the musical project of composer Martin Dawagne. Rather than a collection of tracks, the songs of Yarns are a succession of sound paintings and meditative prose about escapism and removal. Dealing with the mental patterns and tides of his own mind, Martin chose to express himself through haunting loops and ethereal poems that he wrote in 9 different locations in North-America.
