Stabbing Joy
With sounds of distortion and velvet melodies, Stabbing Joy hits hard with piercing lyrics and catchy riffs. A Charlottetown based band, the group consists of five members spanning from PEI to BC. Carrying a full roster of passive-aggressive, guitar-driven power pop tunes, Stabbing Joy is here to entertain the people and spark a smile. The music is not only loud with shrieking guitar riffs, but the lyricism is constantly bringing you in sweetly only to rip you to shreds with attitude.

Dennis Ellsworth & the Mercy Dolls
Dennis Ellsworth is a prolific songwriter. He’s been in the rhythm of writing, recording and releasing an album a year. He travels around the planet singing what he writes. He’s optimistically dark. Naturally, he writes shadowy lyrics and his melodies linger. His songs are haunting, in a good way. His voice is distingue. He was raised on Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond and Kris Kristofferson.

Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire
The exploratory and adventurous music of Franco-Albertan Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire is an organized chaos. Her vivid lyrics, and the melodies that carry them, create folk-poetry with notes of rock, beatnik and at times a little country. Through an authentic and natural stage presence, she invites audiences to journey between laughter and sighs, with her light anecdotes and intimate avowals.
Allan Hurd
Antennes déployées au diapason de la Terre, des arbres, des lacs et des rivières, des routes et des chemins de fer ainsi que des humains qui y habitent, Allan Hurd s’émerveille depuis toujours devant l’univers mystique des chants & sons ; autant pour les tensions qu’ils sont capables de nous provoquer, que pour l’apaisement qu’ils savent nous induire.
Geek assumé, il fabrique et/ou modifie la plupart de ce qui l’entoure en studio ou sur scène, que ce soit sa quinquagénaire Harmony Rocket 1962 qu’il a entièrement restaurée, ou la valise qui lui sert de kick drum. Parfaitement bilingue et doté depuis toujours d’un don pour conter des histoires, sonorisateur, multi-instrumentiste et inventeur d’instruments (parfois utiles), Allan propose un son unique, riche et envoûtant. Ses compositions se démarquent par leurs atmosphères planantes, assymétriquement structurées et proposent des arrangements denses et audacieux.

The Palmer Squares
The Palmer Squares is a hip-hop duo from Chicago.
The Palmer Squares defy the stereotyping of hip-hop!
What originally began as an inside joke amongst high school friends, unexpectedly morphed into a legitimate hip-hop duo that has now garnered praise from some of the most respected veterans in the game. One day after school, despite never having the urge to pen a verse before, Acumental and Term conspired amongst themselves to poke fun of the prevailing trends. After sharing these ridiculous parodies with their close friends, they were showered with the anticipated laughs, but also received an overwhelming, unexpected response they could have never foreseen: “write more; this is amazing! Thus, The Palmer Squares were born.
Vantablac SOL
